Abstract: "The key focus of this presentation is firstly on a quick review of the current position in regard to innovations in land reform and land administration in Sub Saharan Africa. The second focus is on suggesting some ways of moving forward to strengthen these innovations, to be able to deliver tenure security for the poor, both in rural and urban areas. Land reform will be shown to be an important context for innovative land administration approaches. We will briefly examine some of the better known innovative land administration approaches in Sub Saharan Africa, such as Mozambique and Namibia. Then we will discuss some of the more recent findings concerning affordable and innovative ways of delivering security of tenure in Uganda, Tanzania and Ethiopia, where the World Bank, often partnered by UN-HABITAT, has been recently working. We will also make brief reference to other innovations globally to indicate that unconventional ways of delivering security of tenure is becoming a growing global trend."
