The Organic Law on Rural Land will be processed in 2015 at the National Assembly. The report for the first debate of this legislation (of 113 articles, five general provisions, eight transitional and five derogations) is ready at the Commission on Food Sovereignty, incharge of the subject.
The law will regulate the use and access to rural land, which shall meet the social and environmental function. It will also regulate the property, ownership, management and redistribution of land to ensure food sovereignty, improve productivity and protect the environment.
It is expected that this project be approved in the first quarter of next year.
