Attached please find Terms of Reference :

Background and Context :

  1. The Bank has launched a Feed Africa Strategy for Agricultural Transformation in Africa (2016-2025) that takes a “commodity value chain approach” for a competitive and inclusive agribusiness sector that creates wealth, improves lives, creates jobs, secures the environment and alleviates poverty. The Strategy notes that security of land tenure remains a major component for an enabling environment that can facilitate the implementation of the Strategy ;
  2. Challenges of inefficiencies in land governance including land registration and lack of security of tenure bring uncertainty to invest in agricultural land. Most African countries have basic land tenure laws that are incomplete and poorly enforced that discourage private investments. Meanwhile, women’s access to land is on average less than half that of men as to greater extent titles and inheritance rights across Africa are given to male family members. Women remain the primary users of agricultural land in most African communities as they make up 70% of the farmers. Equally, challenges of climate change require efficiencies in sustainable land management practices. However, lack of secure tenure intensify illegitimate agriculture practices that cause land degradation and pose enormous risks to continental food security ;
  3. Feed Africa Strategy highlights the Bank’s catalytic role in assisting Regional Member Countries (RMCs) in creating enabling conditions for agricultural business-led transformations. Some improvements in the land sector will be necessary to create an enabling environment for agricultural development. One of the most important factors is the availability of land resources upon which small-scale and commercial agricultural activities occur. Reforms are crucial not only for the rural farmers but also for foreign and local commercial investors, some of whom seek to engage in large-scale farming ;
  4. From 2016-2018, the Bank engaged with Regional Member countries (Kenya, Senegal, Cameroon, Nigeria, Burundi, Malawi, Cote d’Ivoire and Tanzania) to undertake land tenure systems studies. The objective of the Land Tenure studies were to identify and describe the existing land tenure systems in respective countries with a view of analyzing the challenges and opportunities that land tenure systems present for agricultural transformation. The studies focused on the current state of countries’ agriculture; the nexus between land tenure and agriculture; land policies, legislative and administrative measures and institutions in land management; and strengthening property rights to facilitate investment and opportunities for agricultural transformation; challenges in land tenancy arrangements ;
  5. By doing so, the studies identified key constraints and opportunities for agricultural transformation through land tenure reform, public and private sector needs and assessed whether different tenure systems require different frameworks to support agricultural transformation. The studies also identified options for country level interventions based on prevailing practices and made recommendations for policy priorities and interventions.

Purpose :

The purpose of the consultancy is to help Regional Member Countries in resolving land issues that will pave the way for agriculture transformation. This will serve as an agenda that will drive the Bank to achieve a 25% increase of secure Tenure in Africa by 2025, as indicated in the Feed Africa Strategy.
