Land governance is a challenging endeavour. The situation is more complicated for countries in the developing world that have to deal with diverse interests, justice issues and legacy issues, land use, gender contestations, spatial and generational disparities legal pluralism. In Southern Africa, legacy issues of exclusion and marginalisation fuel conflict and instability and contestations. Efforts to reconcile. The competing claims over land include multi- stakeholder platforms, policy initiatives and advocacy and lobbying by diverse coalitions and interest groups in the land sector. Legacy problems include the colonial legacy and its associated conflict and exclusion. The attempts to reconcile these diverse claims have yielded interesting outcomes in the different countries of Sub-Saharan Africa. The initiatives have been based on specific institutional arrangements, trade-offs and power broking. As South Africa finds itself locked in these policy processes to mobilise and consolidate the different voices of stakeholders in land governance, the Public Affairs Research Institute is hosting a Webinar to provide a platform for stakeholders to interact on 'Towards coherent land policy-making in South Africa: Insights and Lessons'.
