    Ghana

    As gold prices soared from 2008 onwards, tens of thousands of foreign miners, especially from China, entered the small-scale mining sector in Ghana, despite it being ‘reserved for Ghanaian citizens’ by law. A free-for-all ensued in which Ghanaian and Chinese miners engaged in both contestation and collaboration over access to gold, a situation described as ‘out of control’ and a ‘culture of impunity’. Where was the state? This paper addresses the question of how and why pervasive and illicit foreign involvement occurred without earlier state intervention.

    Este Destaque Rural pretende analisar as razões da persistência e agravamento da pobreza e das desigualdades sociais, das assimetrias territoriais entre províncias, entre o Sul e o Norte de Moçambique, e entre o meio rural e as cidades. Esta realidade acontece onde cerca de 70% da população vive no meio rural e cujos rendimentos provêm em mais de 70% da agricultura. A desnutrição crónica e aguda não recua significativamente. Os índices de prevalência de doenças continuam sendo dos mais elevados do mundo.

    Mozambique

    As mudanças no acesso e uso da terra em Moçambique estão a criar novas paisagens, geralmente às custas das populações pobres. Apesar de haver uma legislação progressista da terra, grupos de elite e interesses privados estão a consolidar as suas propriedades de terra, enquanto que os camponeses perdem as suas terras e o acesso a terrenos férteis fica cada vez mais difícil.

    Mozambique

    In Mozambique, changes in land access and use are shaping new landscapes, often at the expense of the poor. Despite progressive land legislation, elite groups and vested interests are consolidating land holdings while peasant producers are being dispossessed of their land and access to fertile plots is becoming increasingly difficult. As national and foreign investors seek land for housing, real estate, agriculture, tourism, mining and forestry, what is the state’s role in responding to these increased demands?

    A law can be a powerful tool for poverty alleviation and rural development.
    In most developing countries, a majority of the population lives in rural
    areas. Most rural residents—and especially the poorest people—depend

    give people access and secure rights to land and encourage investment in
    the land can establish a foundation on which rural families can grow their
    incomes and assets. Good land laws can help create an environment that
