The project is to empower national, provincial and municipality level government and local Non State Actors and communities to facilitate the recognition of tenure rights. It is expected that this will prevent conflicts due to existing weak land tenure and will improve the security of land occupation. The project is assisting the Government in the creation and implementation of a process for regularizing land claims and establishing more-secure land rights of individual smallholder, untitled communities and peri-urban residents that occupy their land without formal title deeds. This process is in line with the frameworks established in the Voluntary Guidelines for Responsible Governance of Tenure (VGGT) as well as promotes the application of the Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM).
