Advocating for pro-poor land laws: Uganda Land Alliance and the land reform process in Uganda

Research reports

Uganda Land Alliance (ULA) is an example of a CSO that has recorded considerable success in its advocacy for pro-poor land policies, in no small measure due to its ability to use research both to empower the poor and to engage policymakers. Aided by research-based arguments and information, ULA played a successful intermediary role, between the citizenry and the state elite, to arrive at a land law (Land Act, 1998) that is not just driven by economic imperatives but also addresses issues of equity.
