|Overview : |
The Land Reform Policy environment in South Africa has been under the most intense and structured scrutiny over the last 21 months since the Policy Conference of the Ruling Party in June 2017. This became more intense over the last 16 months since its 54th National Conference resolution on Land Expropriation Without Compensation and after the National Assembly Adoption of the Motion on Land Expropriation without Compensation in February 2018.
In February 2018, subsequent to adoption of the Motion on Expropriation of Land without Compensation (EWC), National Assembly established a Joint Parliamentary Constitutional Review Committee (JPCRC) to preside over public consultations, including provincial roadshows, on the necessity for an amendment to the constitution to allow for this. In these consultations the public had an opportunity to express its views, not only on the necessity to amend the Constitution, but also their lived experience of land inequality.It should also be noted that there are national guiding policy frameworks, primarily the National Development Plan (NDP) that ought to be aligned to.
