NEW BOOK: Land reform in Zimbabwe: challenges for policy. Posted on February 7, by Lesley White - FAC blog. Zimbabwe’s land reform continues to be controversial, but in the post-Mugabe era there is at least the prospect of sensible policies to get agriculture and rural economies moving.

The period of formal colonization in Zimbabwe lasted 90 years, from September to independence in Apriland was marked by European settler occupation of Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia), and the dispossession of millions of black farmers of their land.

A series of land policies deprived the majority their land rights while granting rights. Environmental protection and land management. Farm or undeveloped land composes the majority of land in most countries. Policies may encourage some land uses rather than others in the interest of protecting the environment.

For instance, subsidies may be given for particular farming methods, forestation, land clearance, or pollution abatement. Zimbabwe (/ z ɪ m ˈ b ɑː b w eɪ,-w i /), officially the Republic of Zimbabwe, formerly Rhodesia, is a landlocked country located in Southern Africa, between the Zambezi and Limpopo Rivers, bordered by South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and capital and largest city is second largest city is Bulawayo.A country of roughly 14 million people, Zimbabwe has 16 official Calling code: +   Efficient agricultural policies are essential to meeting increasing demand for safe and nutritious food in a sustainable way.

While growth in demand for food, feed, fuel and fibres presents significant opportunities for agriculture, government policies must address challenges such as increasing productivity growth, enhancing environmental performance and adaptation to climate.

Agriculture sector has experienced a steady decline in its contribution to GDP over past 42 years. The poor performance of the sector therefore represents an added challenge to the fight against poverty. From a % share in GDP at independence inagriculture has fallen to % as at (Ministry of Finance and Development Planning, ).

The new National Agriculture Policy reflects best national and international practices, and focuses on agriculture as a theme, not only as a sector. Recognizing the multi-functionality of agriculture, it builds on a vision that draws –in formulation and execution– on the capacity of actors beyond the Ministry of Agriculture only.

According to Gibbon ( in Sichone, ), “Zimbabwe’s social and economic policies can be grouped into four main phases in post- colonial era.” “The first, from independ ence to land prices shot up drastically, making it difficult for the government to acquire land (Tshuma, ) This explains why 81% of the land acquired for resettlement in the first phase was in the drier agro-economic regions of the country (Zimbabwe, ).

and (2) the role of public policies in affecting productivity and structure. Background on Agricultural Productivity Changes in productivity measures, or indexes, whether for the general economy or any sector of the economy such as agriculture, are a key indicator of its health.

Productivity indexes. Agriculture contributes around 17% to GDP and continues to be among the most important and success-ful sectors in India. Around 58% of the Indian population depend on agriculture for their livelihood.

Apart from delivering the local industries with top quality raw materials for processing, agriculture provides almost 10% of total export earnings. economic crisis. These causes will be preceded by a brief discussion on Zimbabwe’s pre land re-distribution and the beginning of Zimbabwe’s environmental crisis.

Although the advent of the political crisis in Zimbabwe–which led to a haphazard and chaotic land redistribution–. The land appropriation laws, policies and practices during the colonial era led to the current dualism in Zimbabwe’s economy and land use practices by creating two broad land use categories of state and freehold land.

Indigenous peoples were settled in communal lands (state land) with. In the absence of a land policy, Zimbabwe also made use of the Commission of Inquiry into Appropriate Agriculture Land Tenure System, the Presidential Land Review Committee (Utete.

This book examines gender relations to land relations that are crucial to formulating policies through which African women's food producing capabilities can be advanced. It addresses the need to document historical changes in land tenure practices that.
