During the past months, Ine Buntinx of KU Leuven conducted fieldwork in Rwanda and Kenya. The fieldwork in Rwanda was organized in close collaboration with INES Ruhengeri and Esri Rwanda and consisted of semi-structured in depth interviews. The fieldwork in Kenya was organized in close collaboration with the Technical University of Kenya (TUK), the University of Twente (ITC) and the University of Muenster (WWU) and consisted of workshops and semi-structured in depth interviews.
The ‘Govern and Grow’ part of the its4land project is mainly focusing on the development of governance and capacity models to support the use of the its4land tools. To deliver this research, it is important that the perspectives of key stakeholders are incorporated. Together with the support of the local partners, Ine was able to grasp the perspectives of a variety of actors from the national, local government, NGO’s and private companies. The workshops and interviews were very useful to understand the governance of the current land tenure recording situation and to find out how the its4land tools need to be used in a sustainable way. The collected data will be valuable for Deliverable 7.4 which aims to create initial versions of its4land governance and capacity development models.
