This study was undertaken as part of AREU's applied thematic project, "Water Management, Livestock and the Opium Economy” (WOL). As the Government of Afghanistan adopted a new Draft Land Policy in January 2007, and as strategies were being devised to achieve land registration benchmarks within the interim Afghanistan National Development Strategy (I-ANDS), the current paper moves the focus of study toward policy. It addresses the challenge of recording information on the ownership of and other legal interests in rural land, identifies and discusses the major issues that will influence land registration in the Afghan context, and sets out a strategy for piloting a system of land registration.
