Transparent, equitable and gender-sensitive agrarian reform

The main focus of this report is the repercussions of land reform for farm workers. However, field findings show the imperative for a transparent, equitable and gender-sensitive process. Indeed, in early 2003 there were growing calls for a comprehensive land audit to ascertain irregularities and corruption in the allocation of model farms. There is certainly a need for transparency in agrarian reform. In comparison with organised interest groups such as war veterans, women have not been allocated a fair share of land. They appear to have received less than 20 per cent of the land. It seems that fewer than 5 per cent of farm workers received land under the programme.
