Abstract

This paper examines the efficiency and equity debate on the land question in Africa and situates it in the Ugandan context. In reference to the issues raised in the debate, the paper concentrates on four areas that are inter linked ie land titling/privatization and (i) security of tenure, (ii) land markets, (iii) investment in agricultural production, and (vi) environmental conservation. Although we are able to show with some empirical evidence, the limitations of the efficiency and the contributions of the equity views respectively, we nevertheless reach
that the two debates do not exhaustively analyse the land question in Uganda thus calling for the need for an alternative or at least supplementary approach.
