Securing Land and Property Rights for All

Latest News

NRC Ukraine Jan 2016Based on research conducted by NRC´s ICLA programme in Ukraine, the paper highlights a range of shelter and housing, land and property (HLP) challenges. These require urgent attention in order to prevent a further deterioration in conditions for over three million conflict-affected people in Eastern Ukraine, including at least 1.7 million registered IDPs.

The paper focusses on the following main topics:

• Contradictory legal and policy framework
• Restricted definition of an IDP
• Lack of sufficient and adequate housing
• Fear of losing property in conflict-affected areas
• Military occupation of civilian property and mine/UXO contamination of farmland
• Lack of security of tenure for IDPs in rented accommodation
• Lack of access to legal services

NRC provides recommendations in order to strengthen HLP rights of displaced and conflict-affected populations and to serve as a basis for durable solutions.

The report is also available in Russian and Ukrainian. All versions can be found on the NRC Website here
