    The historical legacy in South Africa of apartheid and the resulting discriminatory policies and power imbalances are critical to understanding how water is managed and allocated, and how people participate in designated water governance structures. The progressive post-apartheid National Water Act (NWA) is the principal legal instrument related to water governance which has broadly embraced the principles of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM).

    This paper sheds light on how to harvest
    the "youth dividend" in Sub-Saharan Africa by
    creating jobs in agriculture. The agriculture that attracts
    the youth will have to be profitable, competitive, and
    dynamic. These are the same characteristics needed for
    agriculture to deliver growth, to improve food security, and
    to preserve a fragile natural environment. With higher
    priority accorded to implementation of well-designed public

    Land policy, administration and
    management are areas of strong client demand for technical

    Despite strong economic growth,
    investment in basic urban infrastructure -- water supply,
    wastewater removal and treatment, roads, and other
    capital-intensive systems -- has failed to keep pace with
    urban growth, leaving a critical urban infrastructure
    deficit. At the same time, urban lands in these many
    developing countries are among the most expensive in the
    world. Much of this land is owned by public authorities.

    Albania

    Albania's radical farmland
    distribution is credited with averting an economic crisis
    and social unrest during the transition. But many believe it
    led to a holding structure too fragmented to be efficient,
    and that public efforts to consolidate plots are needed to
    lay the foundation for greater rural productivity. This
    paper uses farm-level data from the 2005 Albania Living
    Standards Measurement Survey to explore this quantitatively.

    "land grabs" into a development opportunity by
    improving land governance to reduce the risks of
    dispossessing poor landholders while ensuring mutually
    beneficial investors' deals. This book shows how Sub
