EQUITY, EFFICIENCY AND SUSTAINABILITY

Rural land is one of the key areas of creating a just society. It is also very complicated, with seriously conflicting interests at play. A land reform programme is one way of attempting to increase justice on the land. It requires a comprehensive approach and the application of skills and resources in a positive way to succeed. People will not wait for land reform. If there is no legitimate mechanism for addressing grievances, they will take matters into their own hands. Land invasions and occupations will become the order of the day, a situation that is bound to lead to conflict. It is a situation all right minded people would want to defuse, but can only be done if a legitimate land reform programme is put in place as an outcome of the negotiation process.
