About Land Conflicts

Today’s high population growth coupled with climate change, natural disasters and large-scale economic globalization puts increasing pressure on land, which in turn becomes increasingly scarce and thereby subject to conflict – often boosted by fragile institutions, weak governance and gender gaps. The rush for land, global commercial pressures on land, land grabbing, involuntary resettlement due to large infra-structure projects, migration due to desertification, displacements due to violent clashes as well as boundary disputes between neighbours and inheritance conflicts over land between siblings – the scope of land conflicts is enormous (GIZ, 2017).
