    La maca (Lepidium meyenii) es una raíz andina a la cual se le atribuyen propiedades energéticas y estimulantes. En los últimos años el interés de mercados asiáticos dio lugar al “boom de la maca”, incrementando los precios y provocando la rápida conversión de pastizales altoandinos en tierras de cultivo, transformando de esta manera el paisaje, el ecosistema, la economía y la sociedad rural de la zona altoandina de Junín.

    Angola

    Effective recognition of customary land rights is still a challenge in Angola, as in many other African countries. Despite customary land rights of the traditional rural communities are expressly recognized in the 2004 National Land Law, very few communities in Angola have been able to register their land. In the Province of Bié, in Angola central highlands, only five customary collective land titles (called Dominio Util Consuetudinario) had been issued within the period 2004-2015.

    This country level analysis addresses land governance in Laos in two ways. First, it summarises what the existing body of knowledge tells us about power and configurations that shape access to and exclusion from land, particularly among smallholders, the rural poor, ethnic minorities and women. Second, it draws upon existing literature and expert assessment to provide a preliminary analysis of the openings for and obstacles to land governance reform afforded by the political economic structures and dynamics in the country.

    Les DV n’ont pas force d’obligation indérogeable. C’est un outil de référence mobilisable pour faire évoluer les politiques et pratiques de gouvernance relatives à la tenure des régimes fonciers applicables aux terres, pêches et forêts. Leurs préconisations bénéficient d’une forte légitimité puisqu’elles ont réuni, fin 2012, les signatures des États membres du Comité de la Sécurité Alimentaire Mondiale (CSA), suite à un processus d’élaboration qui a accordé une place importante à l’expression de la société civile mondiale.

    Las DV no son ni de obligado cumplimiento ni tampoco inderogables. Son una herramienta de referencia que se usa para forzar la evolución y mejora de políticas y prácticas de gobernanza relativas a la tenencia de la tierra, la pesca y los bosques. Sus postulados gozan de una importante legitimidad ya que se consensuaron a finales de 2012 mediante las firmas de los estados miembros del Comité de la seguridad Alimentaria Mundial (CSA) y a raíz de un proceso de elaboración que logró una presencia importante de la voz de la sociedad civil mundial.

    The voluntary guidelines do not create an absolute obligation. They are a basic tool that can be used to bring about changes in governance policies and practices associated with the tenure regimes applicable to land, fisheries and forests. The recommendations they contain are highly legitimate insofar as they were signed in late 2012 by the member states of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) following a drafting process that placed significant emphasis on the views of civil society around the world.
