Conflicts over property rights and resolution of disputes in Kabul : conclusions (Pashto)

This note presents policy recommendations on mechanisms to address land tenure and land dispute resolutions in urban Afghanistan. Given the magnitude of Kabul's informal settlements, community?based mechanisms need to be supported and they are an efficient way of addressing existing and potential conflicts. Customary norms provide an excellent platform upon which to build accountable, reliable and trusted systems of evidencing. The Special Land Disputes Court, mostly dealing with disputes over private lands, needs to reform to improve its performance, capacity and accountability. Finally, basic good governance measures need to be implemented in the public agencies involved in property transactions.
