Land Reform and Rural Development
Our work in land reform and rural development is cross-cutting. A core tenant of our approach to development and capacity building is an emphasis on empowering marginalised groups and focusing our efforts on bringing the gaps in rural communities.
Land Rights Management Facility
Seriti is appointed as a mediator on the national panel of the Land Rights Management Facility (LRMF) to provide mediation services to Communal Property Associations initiated by the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform (DRDLR) in 2007, motivated by the need to remedy evictions, threats of eviction and human rights violations in rural areas.
We are appointed to for a period of three years from 01 January 2019 to 31 December 2021.
Land Restitution Projects
Seriti serves on the national panel of transactional advisors to the Commission on Restitution of Land Rights. We facilitate and assist new landowners to enter into mutually beneficial commercial and private partnerships with investors to develop their land, create jobs, build capacity and support transformation.
This is meant to ensure rural livelihoods, decent work and continued social and economic advancement for land restitution beneficiaries and their communities.
Communal Property Associations
Seriti is appointed to the panel of training service providers for various communal property institutions (CPI) in the North West province for a period of twenty-four (24) months ending September 2021.
In 2019, Seriti trained 100 individuals in compliance and governance from various CPAs situated in the North West. The training was aimed at building the skills and knowledge base of the CPA Executive Committees in the area of governance and compliance as it relates to the CPA Act and CPA Constitutions.
