Came across some helpful information for those in Africa who are participating inSurvey Earth in a Day in June.  The International Land Coalition provides a great document about Benchmarks& Land Governance in Africa.

Throughout Africa, democratic land governance systems are key for both protecting the rights of diverse communities and creating a stable economic environment for investment.  In an effort to encourage their effective development, the African Union established  the Framework and Guidelines on Land Policy in Africa (F&G) in July 2009.  During this same period, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization began consultations to develop Voluntary Guidelines on Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests (VGGT), resulting in their adoption at the Committee for World Food Security (CFS) in May 2012 as the first detailed land governance guidelines endorsed by the international community.  The documents provided hope for a new direction to both government and civil society organisations seeking to improve land governance and practice in Africa.
