Earlier in the year Prindex – the first ever global measure of land and property rights – released its full 140-country dataset. The results are sobering. Almost 1 billion people around the world feel it is likely or very likely that they will lose their land or home within the next five years.

Palestine
Escrito por L. Vatolina
 
A Palestina é um país agrário. É fraco seu desenvolvimento industrial. Aproximadamente 67% de sua população (1.912.000 habitantes, dos quais 1.143.000 Árabes e 600.000 Judeus)(1) ocupam-se na agricultura. Entretanto, a superfície de suas terras de cultura é muito restrita, não ultrapassando 8.000 quilômetros quadrados numa extensão total de 26.000 quilômetros quadrados. A densidade média da população é de 73 habitantes por quilômetros quadrado.

The global conservation community now faces the added challenge of Covid-19 on top of a longstanding set of complex conservation, sustainability, and development challenges. In the wake of this pandemic, return to business as usual is not a viable option. The existing systems and structures upon which conservation is based must evolve. Climate change, biodiversity conservation, and poverty elimination efforts have been further complicated by Covid-19, with the brunt of the pandemic borne most acutely by the poorest and most vulnerable.

As florestas naturais capturam muito mais CO2 do que as artificiais. Um novo estudo não apenas confirma isso, mas demonstra que as florestas naturais (e por isso mesmo bem mais ricas em biodiversidade) funcionam melhor do que as monoculturas e as plantações dominadas por uma única espécie.

I write this blog as our project team embarks on a fifth year of work on women’s land tenure security (WOLTS) with pastoral communities in mining-affected areas of Mongolia and Tanzania. Just before Christmas 2019, we were in Mundarara village in northern Tanzania. Exceptionally heavy rains made getting around much more challenging than usual. Locals travelling on foot had to make wide detours to avoid getting bogged down in waterlogged grazing land, and it took everyone much longer to get to the village primary school for our long-planned training day.

Last week the World Cocoa Foundation, a membership organization of more than 100 cocoa companies, held its annual partnership meeting in Berlin, Germany. The aim of the meeting is for governments, cocoa companies and farmers to identify and tackle the sector’s largest sustainability challenges. A 90-minute session was devoted to the topic of land tenure. The prominence of the session, as well as the seniority of the presenters – the Head of Sustainable Sourcing for Hershey’s and the Deputy Director General of Cote d’Ivoire’s Land Agency among them – is a powerful signaling effect.

Quando falamos e estudamos sobre os Objetivos de Desenvolvimento Sustentável (ODS), percebemos a dicotomia do papel das mulheres em questões que tocam vários temas da Agenda 2030 das Nações Unidas. Enquanto elas são consideradas peças-chaves para o alcance de muitos dos ODS, representam também a parte mais afetada por muitos dos problemas discutidos nesse marco.

Banks must stand with Indigenous and local communities in respecting their land rights

In 2018, every week more than three people were murdered, defending their land and environment from destructive industries like mining, logging and agribusiness. These killings represent the extreme end of a spectrum of violence and threats directed at land rights defenders.
