How to Facilitate Community Rule Writing? Tips from Uganda

The Land and Equity Movement in Uganda has created a new Lessons from the Field brief to share with network members and land protection practitioners. Congrats to @Aling @suzaneirau and Judy Adoko for a great summary of how LEMU facilitates community-driven participatory rule-writing. Thank you to @davidarach for support.

As encroachment onto community lands increases in the Lango region of Uganda, communities are organizing to revitalize their traditional land governance systems. Central to these efforts is a process of recording and debating previously undocumented community land management rules. In this Lessons from the Field brief, Namati partner the Land and Equity Movement in Uganda (LEMU) shares insights into how staff facilitate and support the community-driven rules-writing process.

Post questions to the authors here - and share your own strategies and techniques to facilitate community discussions about natural resource management and community governance.
