    This article shows the case of the cerrado region where because of a lack of clear property rights the land market is completely immobilized.

HDC plays a role at three stages of ecosystem service delivery.

    Whether in the halls of American universities or on the streets of cities around the world, “sextortion,” or the abuse of power in which a sexual bribe is coerced, is a common but underreported phenomenon.
