    Zimbabwe

    Zimbabwe's water reforms that were undertaken in the 1990s were meant to redress the colonially inherited inequalities to agricultural water, increase water security against frequent droughts, improve water management, and realise sustainable financing of the water sector. They were underpinned by the 1998 Water and Zimbabwe National Water Authority Acts, which were based on Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) principles. This article describes how IWRM has been implemented against a backdrop of an ever - ev olving land reform programme and a struggling agriculture sector.

Pero la realidad es otra: factores históricos y económicos, aunados a la codicia, la ignorancia y las erradas políticas andinas para las selvas han llevado a esta región a soportar intensos procesos de deforestación y extracción de sus recursos naturales y culturales.

    The concept of “property”, usually studied under private law, has suffered internal (the social function as an essential element of the institution) and external (the administrative limitations) changes. As a result of these changes, the concept of property should be studied under the public law´s approach and method. An issue of utmost importance to public law is that it be properly and adequately articulated by the administrative authorities in order to protect the citizens’ rights.
