This is the second part of land studies on Northern Uganda designed to inform the Peace, Recovery and Development Plan (PRDP). This second part of the study, undertaken during the second half of 2007 in the Lango and Acholi regions, builds on the first phase conducted in 2006 in the Teso region. This second study has been designed to present a more quantitative analysis of trends on disputes and claims on land before displacement, during displacement and on return of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the greater conflict areas of Acholi and Lango regions. The study found that the return from IDP camps to original homes was progressing with varied results tied to the length of time spent in the camps, from 5 to 15 years. About 85 percent of the respondents had experienced threats to tenure security, and many felt these threats were significant. Misgivings exist about the Central Government's intentions towards land. Disputes mainly occurred on land abandoned upon displacement, with border disputes being the most prevalent. The study also looked into land administration, land titling and registration, extremely vulnerable individuals, and legal loopholes. It gives several recommendations, both immediate and long term actions, which can be incorporated and implemented as part of the PRDP.
