Woreda participatory land use planning, Ethiopia

  1. 1. Woreda Participatory Land Use Planning, Ethiopia Fiona Flintan, ILRI Presented at the launch of the Government of Ethiopia's Manual on Woreda Participatory Land Use Planning in Bishoftu, Ethiopia 17th September 2019
  2. 2. Context • 5-6 years ago there were gaps in land use planning, rangeland management, and secure access to resources and land. • Increasing competition for land and resources between different sectors and users. • Lack of coordination between different actors and sectors including land use activities at local level • Lack of tenure security in pastoral areas • Lack of investment in land management and e.g. rangeland degradation, invasive species
  3. 3. Context • Increasing capacity of government and interest in land use planning at different levels. • Development of a manual on PLUP – quite highland focused. • Series of meetings facilitated by Oxfam/REGLAP on such as land use planning including experience-sharing • Agreement that a PLUP manual for pastoral areas would be useful.
  4. 4. Planning can happen at different scales
  5. 5. Importance of land use planning • To reconcile competing pressures on land, and to optimize land use taking into account current land uses (in pastoral areas these are often multiple use) • Bring together different stakeholders to discuss land use and how to improve it • To develop a vision for the future on land use, as part of wider development processes • To provide guidance on coordination of sectors related to land use and addressing land use challenges • Can contribute to greater land tenure security and lead to improved investments in land management • Challenges of ensuring based on good data, affordable, within capacities, implementable, and as participatory as possible.

  11. 11. Developing land use planning in Ethiopia • Current land use including pastoral use of land (grazing areas) need to be starting point. • Needs to be at a scale where funds can be accessed from government for implementation • Should be a participatory and multi-sectoral team including local land users as much as possible, but also needs to be manageable number • Needs to be technical/scientific AND including local knowledge • Needs to be affordable and within capacity of government
  12. 12. Developing land use planning in Ethiopia • Consultation within government at different levels • Learnt/drew from experiences of other countries • SDC and ILC Rangelands Initiative agreed to provide funding, with substantial in-kind support from GIZ • Expert consultations and writing retreats • Input of experts for different sections and development of a land capability classification that includes water drought vulnerability class • Two pilots – in Chifra, Afar (with support from GIZ) and Shinile, Somali (with support from Oxfam)
