No último dia 11 de junho a emoção tomou conta do povo Krenyê e de todos os povos da Teia de Povos e Comunidades Tradicionais do Maranhão. Depois de quase 80 anos de expulsão do seu território tradicional, luta, êxodo e sofrimento houve decisão judicial final favorável ao povo indígena nos autos da ação civil pública demarcatória nº 18327-63.2012.4.01.3700.

Mais de 4% do território brasileiro – 37 milhões de hectares – teve conflitos de terra no ano passado, conforme o relatório da Comissão Pastoral da Terra (CPT) sobre conflitos no campo em 2017. Essa área equivale ao tamanho do Japão, pouco mais que o território da Alemanha.

Countries

Peru agriculture land

Peru shares the main land-related problems of several South American countries: the existence of very large landholdings (latifundios), on the one hand, and small landholdings (minifundios), on the other, in historical processes marked by the interests of actors such as landowners, agro-industrialists, peasants, and indigenous communities. However, unlike some neighboring countries, the dynamics of these elements are different due to a series of particular agricultural policies and their respective results, which have placed Peru as one of the main producers and exporters of agricultural crops in the region.

Despite the achievement of Constitutional democracy in 1994, 'the land question' is at the heart of South Africa's struggles to overcome the cumulative legacies of nearly 350 years of white minority rule. The emotive quality of land policies evokes painful legacies fuelled by disappointments with the official land reform programme ushered in by the new Constitution of 1996. There is broad agreement that land reform programmes have not fulfilled their aims to significantly redistribute land and productive agrarian capacity, strengthen land tenure for the majority, and settle the restitution claims of victims of land dispossession.

Issues

indigenous peoples climate change

Climate change can destabilize existing land and resource governance institutions and associated property rights across the spectrum of landscape types. Transformed climatic conditions, manifested in either rapid-onset or slow-onset ways, can change how land and natural resources are accessed and used as geographical shifts in resource productivity, resource scarcity, and therefore land use patterns occur.
