    Kenya

    The relationship between land ownership and the sustainable use of natural resources is examined within the context of constitutional change in Africa. Using Kenya as an example, it is demonstrated that current constitutional arrangements put excessive emphasis on the protection of private property rights without requiring the corresponding duty of ecological stewardship. This has resulted in the failure of government policies and development practices to fully integrate environmental considerations into growth strategies.

    Kenya

    This study set out to analyze the agricultural potential in
    a newly settled Masongaleni Settlement Scheme being an example
    of an Arid and Semi-Arid land. The potentials here are the
    under-utilized rainfed, irrigated agriculture and livestock
    production particularly bee keeping. A comparison of selected
    rainfed crop yields from Masongaleni Settlement Scheme and
    similar ~cological areas is used to identify the potentials of
    the &chem~.
    On the irrigated crops, the study compares the farmers'

    Kenya

    The area northwest of Mt Kenya is undergoing rapid land use changes caused by a population influx. Rapid population growth and subsequent pressure on land raise the problem of how to increase and sustain agricultural production while at the same time conserving the natural resources (montane forest with Olea africana and Juniperus procera as main species at 2900 m asl.). Deterioration in soil physical and chemical properties following deforestation for agriculture can adversely affect crop production, especially from soils on mountain slopes.

    Africa

    Les pays de l'Afrique du Sahel sont soumis, et particulièrement au cours des dernières décennies, aux à aléas climatiques et éprouvent de ce fait les plus grandes difficultés à assurer leur autosuffisance alimentaire. Les populations rurales confrontées à un milieu de plus en plus hostile délaissent les campagnes pour migrer et venir grossir les effectifs des populations urbaines non productives.

    Africa

    L'urbanisation croissante a eu des conséquences profondes sur l’économie des pays africains et sur la vie des citadins. Le développement des grandes villes, notamment, est à l’origine d'un certain nombre de problèmes comme l'existence d'infrastructures et de services peu fiables, insuffisants et médiocres. Des études ont montré que dans des pays comme le Burkina Faso, l’Ethiopie, la Sierra Leone et la Somalie, un nombre croissant de citadins ont un accès au logement, au transport, à l’eau, a l’éducation et à des services de santé adéquats et/ou acceptables.
