Example text

This section discusses four models that have played a key role in property formalisation theories and debates on property rights in the literature. 1 The replacement model The basic principle of replacement formalisation is that customary tenure systems are replaced with statutory LA and management systems. Replacement models tend to be linked to the substantive reformation of customary rights towards the consolidation of holdings and freehold tenure (Sjaastad and Cousins, 2009). The model is ‘fused with the logic of market economies to make real property a freely tradable good’ (Oestereich, 2000: p.

These rights in improved land can thus become the particular rights of an individual and can be transferred to another in the lifetime of the right-holder. In general, families enjoy fairly well-defined spatial and temporal rights of use over parcels of cultivated land, which are then transmitted to succeeding generations in accordance with the prevailing rules of succession, usually through inheritance (Migot-Adholla and Bruce, 1994). In a similar way, every member of the group has a right to a piece of land for his own use.

In view of these stringent LAS requirements, the third issue regarding the implementation of LASs at the local level is that of how local communities can meet these specifications and develop the capacity to administer land effectively. This relates to specific capacity-related issues, including the building of knowledge, skills and resources. The use of participatory geographic information systems (PGISs) in appraising indigenous knowledge (IK) for LA will be examined. This study will address these three fundamental questions, all of which have less been treated in the literature on formalisation and the design of LASs in customary areas.
