|Samenvatting||Land related conflicts form the bulk of the caseload in the Ugandan courts, and are often at the basis of crimes (assaults, murder etc.). More attention for “effective” preventive justice - a combination of|
measures to reduce the emergence of conflict over land and the use of alternative dispute resolution - is essential to reduce the pressure on the formal court system and improve tenure security. This paper
presents innovative evolutions in Uganda around securing land rights and documenting transactions, particularly in Northern Uganda where customary tenure systems prevail. These include documenting
transactions, demarcation of field boundaries and starting to use the Certificates of Customary Ownership, Alternative Dispute Resolution mechanisms and legal literacy. Support to document, analyze and upscale such pilot initiatives would help increase tenure security for many in Uganda.
