Title:Allocation system of land and its guardianship under traditional tenure in Zambia
Author:Kanduza, A.M.ISNI
Periodical:Journal of Eastern African Research and Development
Geographic term:Zambia
Subjects:customary law
land law
Abstract:Drawing on data mainly from three field studies carried out in the Eastern Province, Zambia, between August 1983 and September 1985, the author (1) assesses the impact on corporate tenure of rapidly changing policies adopted since 1945 that take agriculture as a framework for rural development, and (2) describes the system of land allocation under traditional land tenure in order to show misconceptions that have led to limited public support to producers under corporate tenure resulting in low agricultural output. Conclusion: Corporate tenure offers adequate security of ownership and the provision of efficient extension and credit services to producers on corporate tenure would appear to be the only guarantee for rural development and economic diversification in Zambia.
