Land tenure is a complex social institution which governs the relationship among people with regard to assets such as land, water bodies and forests. It can have a legal or customary basis, or both. Access to land for the rural poor is often based on custom rather than title deed.

Land Law focuses upon the uses and supply of land. It looks to facilitate how an owner of land may use it or moderate how others do so; this relationship can develop into ‘interests’ in the land.
