      However, most of the cases that we have come across in which landholders' rights have been threatened, arise when chiefs or other intermediaries have negotiated with outside agencies to allow appropriation of land or have differentially benefited from the proceeds. As far as the Ghana situation is concerned there are three significant documents that spell the current situation out in great detail, and that also documents current reforms being undertaken in Ghana. A second strategy involves working through the courts and legal texts in order to get clear legal statements about the strength of family ownership of land. Additionally, increased peasant consumption caused shortages of food items such as teffwheat, corn, and other grains in urban areas. It also looks at the anomalous position of Somalia and Somaliland under international law and summarizes the key principles and structures of customary law. The responsibility for planning and executing these projects is vested with the settlement branch of the Ministry of Agriculture, although settlement schemes located within the major rural development projects are planned independently, mostly by the foreign agencies financing the project.

      This legislation has provided some protection and acted as a disincentive to undermining informal land rights. An umbrella organization known as the All-Ethiopia Peasants' Association represented local associations. Much of his time may be devoted to laying this role and very little time would be left to manage these very demanding cash crops. Introduction Prior to my retirement as President I had always assumed such retirement would mean loads of rest, holidays and perhaps some ceremonial travels.

The NDC government that regained power in will, however, pick up the pieces and endeavour to once again expedite the solutions.
