Myths, deadlocks of land registration and the need for alternative approaches, by Hubert Ouedraogo

Land tenure securing systems
in West Africa are based on the
colonial land registration
heritage whose failures have
often been targeted for criticism.
This brief shows that, to be
successful, land policies in West
Africa must question and even
challenge the colonial
foundations on which current
land legislations rest, including
the land registration system.
