    Honduras

    This study investigates the micro-determinants of land use change using community, household and plot histories, an ethnographic method that constructs panel data from systematic oral recalls. A 20-year historical timeline (1975-1995) is constructed for the village of La Lima in central Honduras, based on a random sample of 97 plots. Changes in land use are examined using transition analysis and multinomial logit analysis.

    The effects of land sales restrictions on credit use, land investment and cultivation decisions are investigated using data from two villages in south India. Sales restrictions are found to have little effect on credit supply and demand or demand for land improvements. Some household characteristics are found to affect investment demand on plots subject to sales restrictions in one village, suggesting that the 'transactions effect' of such restrictions may be inhibiting allocative efficiency.

    Honduras

    This paper reviews hypotheses about the impacts of rural population growth on agriculture and natural resource management in developing countries and the implications for productivity, poverty, and natural resource conditions. Impacts on household and collective decisions are considered, and it is argued that population growth is more likely to have negative impacts when there is no collective responses than when population growth induces infrastructure development, collective action, institutional or organizational development.

    Global

    Continuing land degradation and increasing numbers of people living in poverty are among the symptoms of
    the current pressure on land resources. To date, the world’s response to the two challenges of satisfying human
    needs and maintaining the integrity of global ecosystems has been less than successful. The lack of an
    integrated planning framework for land has historically been compounded by poor management strategies,
    failure to identify stakeholders and involve and empower them in the planning and management process, and

    Conversion of arable land (maize) to pasture will affect the soil organic matter (SOM) content. Changes in the SOM content were studied using a size- and density-fractionation method and C-13 analysis. Twenty-six years of maize cropping had resulted in a depletion of carbon stored in the macro-organic fractions (>150 mu m) and an increase in the 250 mu m), light (b.d. 150 mu m) and light (b.d. 150 mu m; b.d. >1.13 g cm(-3)) in the 0- to 20-cm layer was still 40-50% lower than in the continuous pasture plots.

    Een verkennend onderzoek naar de waardering van de kwaliteit van de leefomgeving door ondernemers in de groene ruimte van de West-Betuwe. Naast een literatuurstudie zijn sleutelfiguren geraadpleegd en interviews gehouden onder ondernemers. Het doel van de interviews was om helder te krijgen waarom ondernemers zich in de groene ruimte van de West-Betuwe hebben gevestigd en welke opvattingen ondernemers hebben over de kwaliteit van hun woon- en werkomgeving. Slechts een deel van ondernemers heeft de huidige locatie gekozen op basis van factoren relevant voor het bedrijf.

    Het in dit rapport besproken project `Multifunctioneel landgebruik en waterconservering' is onderdeel van DTO-project Duurzaam Landgebruik. Voor een studiegebied nabij Winterswijk is met een hydrologisch model middels een aantal scenario's andere inzicht verkregen in de sturings- en waterconserveringsmogelijkheden van het gebiedseigen water en is de `waterwinst' gekwantificeerd bij verschillende combinaties van landgebruik en waterbeheer. De aanleg van een reservoir stond steeds centraal. Tevens is aandacht besteed aan de gevolgen voor landbouw en natuur.
