LEGAL AND INSTITUTIONAL REFORM
In cooperation with UN-HABITAT’s Land and Tenure Section, assessments were conducted to identify land and tenure options for returnees and IDPs. The section meanwhile developed a situation analysis based on the legal frameworks of Somaliland and Puntland for land-related issues. Another key activity has been the translation into Somali of draft laws. Regional discussions during urban forums in Somaliland and Puntland have helped define priorities for the relevant institutions, aiming at the consolidation of a structured land regulatory framework. At the same time, UN-HABITAT, in collaboration with the Norwegian Refugee Council and UNHCR, is undertaking further studies on land for south central Somalia, to provide adequate regulatory tools to the Transitional Federal Government.
