Implementing the rural code: Perceptions and expectations in rural Niger
MetadataShow full item record
The "Principles of Orientation of the Rural Code" (the "Code") was approved under Ordinance (No 93-015) of March 2, 1993. Efforts are being made by the National Rural Code Committee (NRCC) to implement the new Code in rural areas. The NRCC has decided to begin with pilot tenure commissions in seven arrondissements: Kollo (Tillavery), Boboye (Doss), Birni Nkonni (Tahoua), Guidan Roumgi (Maradi), Mirriah (Zinder), Maine Soroa (Diffa), and Tchirozerine (Agadez). Each tenure commission will adjudicate land disputes and help manage the use of natural resources.
