Will formal documents of title and the courts resolve all land disputes? (Pashto)

Land disputes in Kabul vary according to the type and location of property (formal or informal) and the corresponding documentation of title (legal or customary). The formal resolution system based on the Special Land Disputes Court resolves disputes over formal properties, which most often pertain to wealthier individuals and represent a minority of all land holds. However, Kabul has about 2.4 million informal settlers who often resort to informal community?based dispute resolution. This note takes as given that mechanisms to regularize tenure should be put in place to address insecurity but it accepts that tenure security will not resolve all disputes. Given the extent of Kabul's informal settlements and the city's projected growth rate of 5 percent yearly, efforts should be made to ensure that the land dispute resolution system supports community?based mechanisms as an efficient way to address existing and potential conflicts, particularly over informal land.
