Within the Secure Tenure in Post Conflict Societies programme, and as part of the Global Campaign for Secure Tenure, UN-HABITAT is developing a project in Mozambique. These initiatives aim to contribute further to the defining and elaborating of the normative framework of this campaign as it applies to post conflict situations. The objective of the project is to improve security of land tenure and housing rights for poor communities in flood prone areas.
Activities in the project include the undertaking of a case study on the tenurial rights of flood affected families, consultation and development of guidelines for formulating and implementation. A report has been produced on secure tenure conditions of flood affected families. This information will help in the development of further normative guidelines, the establishment of policy on secure tenure and will contribute to a greater understanding of land tenure issues in situations characterized both by post conflict and disaster issues.
