Land and agrarian reform in integrated development plans (IDPs)
MetadataShow full item record
This research study were conducted in late 2004 and the fi ndings presented to the Department of Provincial and Local Government (DPLG) and shared with the Department of Land Affairs (DLA) in 2005. Since then, some of its recommendations have been incorporated into new directions in land policy. At the National Land Summit in July 2005, the government acknowledged that land reform is not on track and that ‘a new trajectory’ would be needed in order not only to improve the pace of land reform but also to move away from an ad hoc approach to land reform. The policy position paper tabled at the summit by the Ministry of Agriculture and Land Affairs drew directly on this PLAAS research study, endorsing its recommendations and calling for a review of the guidelines for integrated development plans (IDPs) and the piloting of new systems and procedures (MALA 2005a:90).
