  • 6. Results and Discussion  Land Tenure System  Land tenure in Ethiopia has a long legacy of state intervention.  It has plays a multi-dimensional relations in to:  Social,  Technical,  Economic,  Institutional,  Legal and Political Aspects
  • 7. Land Tenure System in Amhara Region  Land tenure system in Amhara region has undergone numerous reforms over different regimes.  the Imperial period before1975,  the Derg or Socialist Period (1966 – 1983E.C) and  Current LTS (EPDRF Period Since 1983 E.C)
  • 8. Under imperial Regime (up to 1974)  Complex land tenure system due to d/t factors:  Geographical,  Ethnic Diversity,  Cultural Diversity, and  Historical Background  Most commonly recognized tenure types are:  Private (Rist Or “Gult” --- kinship),  Church land tenure,  State Holding Systems (‘maderiya’ and ‘mengist’).
  • 9. Private: (The rist system)  The dominant tenure system in Amhara region. Access to land (use rights & transfer rights without land alienation) for offspring's from a common ancestor.  Reduced landlessness and tenancy Whereas,  diminution of holdings, land fragmentation and persistent litigation over land access were among its serious problems.
  • 10. Gult /grant system/  Gult is not a right on the land, rather a right to tax the benefits from land.  Gult is not transferable whereas rist is transferable. • Referred to as ‘gebbar tenures’.  Recognized as the most dominant system during the final days of the Imperial regime.
  • 11. Church tenure/ Samon land tenure Land owned by the church obtained through grants from the crown.  The extent of church holdings was not clearly known due to: • Complexity form of church ownership, • Decentralization nature of ownership and • Secrecy of the church’s central treasury.
  • 12. State/ government land tenure  land is owned by the government  Mengist land tenure:  land registered as government property.  Maderia land tenure: • land granted mainly to:  Government officials,  War veterans, and  Other patriots in lieu of a pension or salary
  • 13. ….  The major problems of land tenure under this regime include: • Exploitative Tenancy, • Land Concentration And Underutilization, • Tenure Insecurity, • Diminution And Fragmentation Of holdings.
  • 14. During the Derg Regime (1974 - 1991)  Based on proclamation on (No 31/1975) “Public Ownership of Rural Land” nationalized all rural land redistribute it to its tillers and to organize farmers in cooperatives, thereby abolishing exploitative landlord-tenant relations so pertinent under the imperial regime. • All Land was under state ownership (nationalization). – The government nationalized rural land without compensation, • Equity and giving access to land to all
  • 15. ….. The proclamation prohibits on transfer-of-use rights by: • Sale, • Exchange, • Succession, • Mortgage or lease, except upon death and only then to a wife, husband or children of the deceased; and  In the case of communal lands, possession rights over the land are given for those working the land at the time of the reform.
  • 16. Most Commonly Land Tenure Problems Continuous land redistribution practice; thereby:  Diminution and fragmentation of holdings,  Tenure insecurity and all its consequences,  Land degradation,  Inefficient allocation of land by way of restrictions on land transfer and  Lack of appropriate land use and administration.
  • 17. Current Land Tenure System (After 1991) The land issue was settled in favor of public ownership of land based on EFDR con. art 40(3). • Ownership of all rural and urban land, • All natural resources, is exclusively vested in the state and in the people of Ethiopia.
  • 18. ….  In current land tenure system the right: • To rent or lease, • To bequeath, and, • Where the right of use expires - to remove his property, • Transfer his title, or claim compensation for it are supported.
  • 19. …. Title registration: • In current land tenure system rural land title registration is on progress in pilot woredas across the region. • Which secures land tenure and realize sustainable land development.
  • 20. Challenges and Gaps of Land In practical there are no fundamental d/ces b/n the Derg and the present government on rural land issues like: • Land despite resolving system, • Land use planning implementation, • Land development planning, • Inconsistency in registration B/N woredas, • Sustainable planning and implementation….
  • 21. Organizational Structure of LAS in Amhara Regional State
  • 23. Conclusion Land tenure is an important part of social, political, and economic structure. land tenure system in Amhara region is highly influenced by the cultural, ethnical, and social background of the community.  land tenure system were the main backbone for political and religious as well as community elders throughout different regimes.
  • 24. Recommendation: • Land tenure (LAS) is a very critical pillar for socio politics stability so the region shall adopt a well defined LAS to maintain land disputes and conflict interest so as to achieve sustainable development. • Best land use and development planning is necessary to improve transparent land transactions for nonfarm economy transition.
