Prindex global data reveals a great deal of diversity in Africa in how secure people feel in their homes and on their land. Rwanda (8%) has one of the lowest rates of tenure insecurity in the world, whereas Burkina Faso (44%) has one of the highest.

The reasons behind this diversity include weak legal systems, overlapping statutory and customary regimes, poor enforcement, corruption, and land grabbing.

Join us for a presentation of Prindex findings on sub-Saharan Africa, followed by a panel discussion on using data on land and property insecurity to inform decision-making.
