How collective action can influence the direction of a land reform: lessons learned from civil society mobilisation in Senegal

This study and research report, by Philippe Lavigne Delville, Daouda Diagne and Camille Richebourg, examines how Senegalese CSOs operating within the framework for dialogue and action on land in Senegal (CRAFS) mobilised around the process of formulating a draft land reform between 2014 and 2016. The process was led by the National Land Reform Commission (CNRF), which the Senegalese government created in 2012 to lead an ‘inclusive and participatory’ land reform. After describing how members of CRAFS contributed to the debate on the need for an inclusive land reform and their active and critical contributions to the CNRF process, this paper analyses the achievements and limitations of their engagement in the process and the lessons learned from it.
