State of the Nation  2024


Redistributing land

Government is accelerating land redistribution through a variety of instruments, such as land restitution and expropriation of land, in order to boost agricultural output.

Access to land

Expanding access to land is vital for our efforts to reduce hunger and provide people with meaningful livelihoods.

  • We are moving ahead with land reform in terms of the Constitution, and anticipate the approval of the Expropriation Bill during this year.
  • The establishment of the Agriculture and Land Reform Development Agency will be finalised this year.
  • The Department of Public Works and Infrastructure will finalise the transfer of 14,000 hectares of state land to the Housing Development Agency.
