This sub-project aims to improve the access to land justice for the poor and vulnerable population in Uganda through developing an increased cooperation between informal and formal land governance, as well as increased community responsiveness towards their land rights. The Implementing Partner will conduct training for judicial and local government officials about principles of customary land justice (CLJ); deliver training for CLJ actors about the principles of justice and fairness and on gender considerations in land justice despite resolution, and convene semi-annual reflection and synergy-building meetings for judicial officials, local government officials, and CLJ actors to strengthen the utilization of the principles of CLJ for courts officials and traditional leaders. LANDnet will also facilitate legal aid and court representation of vulnerable communities; organize a bar-bench land justice forum to streamline access to land justice; conduct community sensitization meetings and organize radio talk shows on land rights to enhance awareness on the topic and support quality legal aid services for vulnerable people in Kitgum and Moroto.
