Export citation

Land users across many developing contexts in Africa are invariably part of faith communities. About 45% of the population of Africa are Christian, about 40% are Muslim and most of the remaining 15% hold traditional, animist beliefs. Faith tends to play a key part in shaping the world view and major life choices of rural communities.
