Land is a fundamentally important resource in Uganda, and is the basis of income, sustenance, and identity for the majority of Ugandans. Agriculture dominates the country’s economy, and accounts for 80% of export earnings and an estimated 80% of employment nationwide. Approximately 87% of Uganda’s estimated 35 million people reside in rural areas, 85% of whom are involved in subsistence agriculture. Nationwide, 90% of all rural women work in agriculture, and women produce an estimated 80% of food crops and contribute 90% of all labor for food production.

The land rights have continued to be violated through land grabbing, forced eviction among others.

This programme therefore, seeks to create awareness of land rights among the communities.
