Together with the Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) at the Earth Institute, Columbia University, and the Environmental Law Institute, in Washington D.C., AC4 is currently engaged in applied research investigating conflict and complexity surrounding issues of land tenure in Haiti.
This project endeavors to:
- Describe the historical and social context surrounding land tenure in Haiti
- Detail the legal framework, organizational entities and current policies relevant to land tenure in Haiti
- Explain the nature of conflicts related to land tenure in Haiti
- Detail the current practices for addressing these disputes
- Note potential gaps in the process of the fluid administration of land tenure in Haiti
This project is specifically aimed towards identifying key stakeholders involved in the aforementioned processes, and to provide recommendations for policy and research directed towards building sustainable peace in Haiti by addressing conflict and complexity related to land tenure. By combining applied research on the ground with archival research and best practices regarding land tenure in other regions of the world, AC4 seeks to provide holistic solutions to the complex problems faced by the people and government of Haiti by means of locally directed and externally informed interdisciplinary collaboration.
