Community land protection


To date, LEMU has successfully worked with a number of communities to document their own rules regarding the management of their communal land. Documenting the agreed Principles, Practices, Rights and Responsibilities (PPRR) reduces the potential for conflict within communities, promotes cohesion and enables community members to clearly articulate their agreed rules.

This practice contributes to upholding fairer and efficient use of land, and reduces the potential for injustices based on the misapplication of custom.
