Lessons from the Field: ‘Visioning’ as a Foundation for Community Land Protection

By: Hilda Alupo Makmot, Jeremy Akin, Robert Ojok, Priscilla Aling, Robins Odur, David James Arach, Phineas Kyotasobora

Until recently, staff at the Land and Equity Movement in Uganda (LEMU), would start a community land protection process with conflict resolution. However, they found that focusing on contentious internal land disputes tended to exacerbate internal discord and even impede the community land protection process. This Lesson from the Field describes how LEMU went back to the drawing board to develop an innovative solution: collective visioning exercises to build unity and momentum for community collaboration.
