Library ResourceJournal Articles & BooksMay, 2020South America, BrazilNos últimos anos, o Brasil vem quebrando recordes relacionados a dimensão de suas tragédias socioambientais. O rompimento das barragens de Mariana e Brumadinho, o primeiro contaminando uma bacia hidrográfica inteira e o segundo matando mais de duas centenas de pessoas, o misterioso derramamento de óleo que atingiu todos os estados do Nordeste e, finalmente, os incêndios florestais que fizeram a Amazônia arder como nunca levaram a população às ruas em protesto.

Landscape governance refers to the combination of rules and decision-making processes of civic, private, and public actors with stakes in the landscape, that together shape the future of that landscape. As part of the Green Livelihoods Alliance, a program that supports civil society organizations (CSOs) to strengthen the governance of tropical forested landscapes, we developed and implemented a method that facilitates stakeholders to assess the status of governance in their own landscape and to identify options for improvement.

Land acquisition often involves power and displacement and can be carried out on a large scale. There are many forms of land acquisition, including for environmental and conservation purposes as well as for production activities. While green grabbing has joined land grabbing as an environmental justice issue of concern, it is not necessarily the case that all green land acquisition is large scale, done by powerful outsiders, or leads to displacement and exclusion.

Various sectors of stakeholders (urban, agricultural, policymakers, etc.) are frequently engaged in participatory research projects aimed at improving water resources’ sustainability.

Library ResourcePeer-reviewed publicationMarch, 2020Guatemala, Mexico
This article investigates how migration and remittances affect forest cover in eight rural communities in Guatemala and Chiapas, Mexico. Based on household surveys and remote sensing data, we found little evidence to support the widespread claim that migration takes pressure off forests. In the Chiapas sites, we observed no significant changes in forest cover since 1990, while in the Guatemalan sites, migration may have increased demand for agricultural land, leading to an average annual forest loss of 0.73% during the first decade of the millennium.
