How can we minimise conflict?

Few people have title to their land, so most people have never surveyed their land. This means the land is not marked with official stones and there is no map with the land registry. As a result, many land conflicts can arise when people argue about where the borders of each plot are – where one person’s land ends and another’s begins.

You do not have to survey land through the District officials to make sure that all the land borders are clear in your village. You can do this yourselves, if you work together in your village. It is a good idea for the elders (Teso for Rwot Kweri??) to help start the process.
