What Are These Guidelines?
These guidelines are an adaptation of the “Land Rights and Shelter: The Due Diligence Standard” document adopted by the Global Shelter Cluster in December 2013 to the South Sudanese context. They aim to assist shelter actors in South Sudan to understand existing land rights over plots of land and to minimize the risk of shelter activities further contributing to land disputes in South Sudan. They are also intended to help managers and implementers of shelter programs with identifying land rights in the complex South Sudanese context.
