Scaling-Up Community Participatory Mapping And Land Use Planning To Reinforce Customary Land Governance For Multi-Stakeholder Engagement On Sustainable Investments And Trade On Land In Southwest Cameroon.

Diciembre, 2023
United States of America

Background and context
With the decentralization processes underway in most countries of the Congo Basin, community involvement in decision-making is becoming an imperative, particularly with regard to land and resource management (Beatty, M.T. et al. (1978). To ensure that this involvement results in a clear and sustained expression of community needs, it is important to think of an integrated, free and committed approach to communities in order to promote a dialogue between land management actors (Joe Watts, 1994).

Conventions locales et sécurisation foncière au Mali

Reports & Research
Diciembre, 2022

Au Mali, la gouvernance des terres et des ressources naturelles, longtemps fondée sur le principe de la domanialité publique, n’a pas réussi à mieux sécuriser les droits des communautés locales ni à empêcher la dégradation desdites ressources. Dans le même temps, les systèmes fonciers traditionnels n’ont pas pu exprimer tout leur potentiel face à l’hégémonie du droit étatique et du fait des pratiques inégalitaires qu’ils soutiennent à l’égard de certains groupes, comme les femmes, les allochtones et les jeunes.

Renforcer les droits fonciers des populations autochtones au Cameroun

Reports & Research
Diciembre, 2022

Au Cameroun, l’augmentation des investissements à grande échelle, dans des secteurs tels que l’agro-industrie, l’exploitation minière et forestière, a entraîné de nombreux transferts de droits fonciers des communautés locales vers les acteurs commerciaux. Mais ces transferts négligent souvent les droits des communautés à la consultation, à l’information et au consentement. Les investissements entrainent des déplacements fréquents et/ou la perte d’accès à des zones et des ressources cruciales.

Climate Governance and Decentralization in Indonesia

Diciembre, 2022

Indonesia represents an interesting case for analysis of the relationship between multi-level governance and climate governance for three main reasons. It is a highly decentralized country; it is a major contributor to land-based greenhouse gas emissions; and it is extremely vulnerable to climate change. The chapter first provides a broad overview on Indonesia’s climate governance in the context of decentralization, and then focuses on sub-national governance of climate change mitigation in the land use sector, the largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in the country.

Traditional Authorities and Spatial Planning in Urban Burkina Faso

Peer-reviewed publication
Mayo, 2021
Burkina Faso

In terms of urban spatial planning, decentralisation and urban growth make it necessary to rethink the sources of legitimacy, agreements and conflicts relating to the actors’ strategies for land access in Ouagadougou. By localising the power and land management in local arenas (municipal territories and neighbourhoods), the decentralisation policy – that has promoted the participatory approach – and legal pluralism have exacerbated land-use competition.

Decentralization as a Strategy to Scale Fit-for-Purpose Land Administration: An Indian Perspective on Institutional Challenges

Peer-reviewed publication
Febrero, 2021

Many countries grapple with the intractable problem of formalizing tenure security. The concept of ‘fit-for-purpose land administration’ (FFPLA) offers a way forward by advocating a shift towards a more flexible, pragmatic and inclusive approach for land rights recording. Inherently, the process and outcome of implementing FFPLA will have significant socio-political ramifications but these have not received much attention in the literature; additionally, few papers have considered this in the context of decentralization, an endorsed strategy for implementing FFPLA.

Outsourcing governance in Peru’s integrated water resources management

Peer-reviewed publication
Enero, 2021
América central
América del Sur

Participatory water governance has become highly influential around the world as a means for managing water resources. Scholars and practitioners advocate for the inclusion of previously marginalized communities in water resources management through the devolution of power, responsibility, and participation. Where community institutions are weak or missing, experts recommend strengthening or re-building them to enable inclusive decision-making over water resources.

Country-Specific Determinants of Agricultural Climate Service Development Pathways in Africa

Diciembre, 2020

The climate services that are available to farmers and other agricultural value chain actors are quite heterogeneous across sub-Saharan African countries. While the literature highlights widespread gaps between available climate services and the needs of farmers and other decision makers, there has been little published analysis of how or why those gaps vary by country.
