Do regional initiatives integrate land reform and rural development? A case of New Partnership for Africa Development (NEPAD), Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) and the East African Community (EAC)

"This paper will briefly discuss the origins and objectives of SADC and EAC, and more specifically, their approach towards land and agrarian reform and rural development. The analysis will centre on whether or not these regional groupings incorporate land and agrarian policies, and if so, the impact this has had on member countries. An overview of NEPAD’s position on land and agrarian policies will also be articulated."
