An Examination of the Impact of Legislation On Land Disputes in Uganda: A Case Study of Ap Ac District

ABSTRACT The impm1ance of land in Uganda is vast, and the issue is gaining more and impm1ance. The number of conflicts, both in court as well as of court, is indisputably on the rise, tensions are increasing and ownership of land is becoming a strife political debate. Research on this topic is limited on the weakness of existing legislations, how land tenure affects land disputes, and the possible solutions to land disputes. The goal of the research is to provide a comprehensive view on the issue. The research shows that the formal rules regulating land ownership largely has negative effects for the issue. The lack of implementation oflaw has greatly affected land issues and if nothing is done it's impossible to predict the situation twenty years from today. These trends heavily affect the Janel issue in Uganda. The research based on a document study and interviews show that the future of U gancla, if the policy context does not charge significantly, is dim. In short, the conclusions are as follows, conflict over Janel will increase, population growth will reduce plot sizes, making them economically unviable, and investment will remain low due to lack of titles and tenure security.
