The global food system will experience an unprecedented combination of pressures over the next 40 years.

Post-conflict northern Uganda has witnessed an increase in disputes over land. This has, to a great extent, been as a result of the armed conflict and its aftermath. Beyond that, other chaotic factors embedded in various social, legal, economic, and political aspects of this society have influenced the nature, gravity, and dynamics of these disputes and the way in which Traditional Institutions and the Local Council Courts have attempted to resolve them.

This paper analyzes the implications of copper mining in Zambia on customary rights to land and forests, and the societal stakes associated with foreign investment in the mining industry. Copper mining affects forests, and in turn the people with customary rights to those forests, in a number of direct and indirect ways, from deforestation during green site development and selective harvesting of timber to the significant but indirect pressures over forests through infrastructure development and the population pull effect of mining towns.

Building on Tanzania’s Kilimo Kwanza (‘Agriculture First’ strategy), the SAGCOT Investment Blueprint describes how $2.1 billion of private investment will be catalysed over a twenty year period, alongside public sector grants and loans of $1.3 billion. The result will be a tripling of the area’s agricultural output. Approximately 350,000 hectares will be brought into profitable production, much of it farmed by smallholder farmers, and with a significant area under irrigation.

Les pays du sud et de l’est de l’Afrique sont confrontés à des pénuries alimentaires récurrentes. Pour lutter contre l’urgence alimentaire et éviter que les produits alimentaires ne quittent le pays, les gouvernements imposent des restrictions commerciales et interviennent sur les marchés. Dans ce contexte, les échanges transfrontaliers entre les zones défi citaires et excédentaires sont susceptibles de contribuer à la sécurité alimentaire régionale. Cet article est basé sur les résultats d’une étude menée dans la région frontalière entre la Tanzanie et la Zambie.

L'article retrace la genèse de la crise alimentaire mondiale qui a atteint son paroxysme avec l'envolée dramatique des prix alimentaires mondiaux en 2007/2008 et les émeutes de la faim qui s'ensuivirent. Il décrit la réaction de la communauté d'aide internationale, qui a créé un « Partenariat mondial pour l'agriculture et la sécurité alimentaire » et analyse de façon critique dans quelle mesure ce dernier a contribué à réduire le nombre des personnes souffrant de la faim, à savoir 925 millions de personnes aujourd'hui.
