    Land degradation and desertification are among the biggest environmental challenges of our time. In the last 40 years, we lost nearly a third of the world’s arable farmland due to erosion, just as the number of people to be fed from it almost doubled. That’s why the UN General Assembly declared 2015 as the International Year of Soils. And the good news is that this new report shows that while Africa remains the most severely a«ected region, the benefit of taking action across the continent outweighs the cost of implementing it: not just by a little, but by a factor of seven.

    There is correlation on land degradation in reference to environment conflict against natural
    resources undocumented. Environmental conflicts mostly depend over human needs and issues
    such as distribution, allocation and natural resources management. History documents show how
    resource-based conflicts had contributed to highly destructive wars at Karamoja and Kagera
    regions of Uganda, Darfur in Sudan, in Rwanda genocide and even in the Niger Delta. Mau

    Geothermal Energy is a natural form of energy stored deep in the earth's hot rocks and
    waters within the fractured rocks. It is fairly widespread in the world mostly within
    continental plate margins. It has been put into use for several centuries but commercially;
    the world's first geothermal power plant was built at Larderello Italy in 1901 and is still
    generating. In Africa, Kenya is the first country to utilize this technology for power
    generation in the Rift Valley at Olkaria Naivasha. The geothermal energy potential in

    Characterizing soil erosion hazard and its spatial variability is critical for maintaining
    user confidence in planning soil- and water- conservation programmes and general
    land-use management. Predicting the average rates of soil erosion for a combination
    of specific soil and land-use types is vital. This is because such predictions form a
    basis for providing guidelines for effective erosion control.
    The purpose of this investigation was to examine the erosion effects of alternative

    O objecto deste relatório são os utilizadores dos produtos florestais e os efeitos da conjugação
    das suas estratégias e actividades extractivas na sustentabilidade dos recursos naturais e no
    desenvolvimento sustentável da região. O objectivo é contribuir para a compreensão dos
    efeitos da utilização da floresta pelos diversos utilizadores na sustentabilidade do recurso. O
    estudo analisa o papel desempenhado pelos Comités dos Recursos Naturais (CRN) na
    exploração da floresta.

    Tetra Tech’s land tenure and property rights experts examine how weak land and resource governance can fuel drivers of violent extremism. With a focus on the African Sahel, this new issue brief finds this dynamic is especially prevalent when land and resource governance challenges are coupled with environmental disruptions, resource scarcity, or migration.
