  1. Forum for conflict management and resolution

The report refers to uneasy relations between farm workers and the new settlers and farmers. There have been conflicts over resources: access to housing, land and food. Farm workers have been evicted from farms and compounds. Tension has sometimes broken out between commercial farmers and the newly settled small farmers. A structure is needed to facilitate the resolution of misunderstandings and disputes between these parties. This structure should include local authorities and representatives from the parties themselves. It should adjudicate conflicts and serve as a non-partisan forum for regular consultation on matters of mutual interest. Such matters would include access to water and other natural resources, social services and livelihoods opportunities. As far as possible, local communities should work out the format and scope of this forum. Local authorities should facilitate such initiatives.
