    Africa

    The seizure of land by those with no legal title to it is what was done a thousand times over by pioneers, colonists and builders of empire. There is nothing new in the transformation of pirates into legitimate landholders who then invoke the law to protect what they have stolen. It all depends when history starts. The powerful have always grabbed land, but when the poor do it, all hell breaks loose.

    El proceso de reconversión industrial que se desarrolla en México manifiesta un impacto diferencial, al incorporar sólo ciertos territorios y determinados sectores económicos a la "nueva lógica de producción global". Esto hace que los patrones territoriales, imperantes hasta los años setenta, se vean modificados. El estudio parte del análisis de la industria manufacturera y reconoce a las empresas de gran tamaño como las de mayor capacidad para asumir dicha reestructuración.

    Chile

    La temprana y radical liberalización de los mercados urbanos chilenos tuvo consecuencias inesperadas en los precios del suelo y en la segregación residencial en Santiago: los precios del suelo ha crecido persistentemente desde la eliminación en 1979 de la norma sobre "límites urbanos" y otras reformas; y la segregación ha reducido su escala geográfica en importantes áreas, debido a la acción del robusto sector inmobiliario privado surgido en los años ochenta.

    South Africa

    This archival paper takes a hard look at the claim that Communal Property Institutions established as part of South Africa's land reform programme are failing. It argues that there are no meaningful indicators against which assessments of success or failure can be made. It asserts that the tenure security of the group and its members should be the primary purpose of land reform CPIs because secure tenure is the primary mechanism for reducing risk for vulnerable people and is the universal need of the group.

    A workable water abstraction licensing scheme is one in which users are able to comply with its provisions and the water authority is able to administer and enforce it efficiently and effectively. Such a scheme aims to formalize users’ water rights in an environment where there are concerns about scarcity, pollution, or competing uses, or where other doubts have arisen because water abstraction is unregulated. In such a system, water can be allocated among diverse users and diverse water use sectors in accordance with the government’s priorities and plans.

    Le retour des réfugiés de 1959, la politique de regroupement de l'habitat adoptée en
    1996, la disette qui frappe le pays depuis 1999, la faible pluviosité qui prévaut dans le
    pays depuis deux ans après le phénomène el nino, conduisent à une prise de
    conscience nouvelle de ce qu'il faut appeler la question foncière, de ses relations
    avec la production agricole dans le cadre de l'option de sécurité alimentaire. Les
    conditions dans lesquelles la problématique foncière s'est progressivement imposée
