    The lack of balanced development where economic, social and environmental dimensions are given due consideration for long term sustainable development has led the international community to consider different paradigms of development. The multiple challenges to development in Africa have necessitated the use of a holistic approach that integrates economic, social and environmental dimensions, and generates new knowledge, policies and actions.

    Urban land markets have a profound effect on how well poor households are able to access the jobs, amenities and services offered in the city. But often the way in which this market works frustrates attempts to open up better located living and business opportunities for poorer urban households and communities, despite government policies and programmes intended to address these challenges. The challenge in South Africa is even larger because of worsening poverty and inequality, and the continuing growth of cities through urbanisation.

    North China is the most important food basket of China, where the majority of wheat and corn are produced. Most crops grown in North China are irrigated, thus water security is food security. Since the 1980s, drying has been frequently observed, as shown by a reduction in precipitation, cutoff in riverflow, and shrinkage of lakes. This increase in drying cannot be explained by climate change alone. We propose that intensive land-use in this area in recent decades has had a significant impact.

    This book is about sustainable land management, the development of water buffers and the business case underneath it. It is part of the discussion on the green economy: investment in natural resource management makes business sense. This also applies for investment in land, water and vegetative cover. Some of the parameters may be different – returns may not always be immediate – but essentially both the financial payback and the economic dividend of investing in integrated landscapes – if done properly – are rewarding.

    El presente trabajo parte afirmando que el acceso al agua potable, por si mismo, es indispensable para vivir dignamente; pero además que es necesario garantizar un acceso sostenible a los recursos hídricos para asegurar el derecho a una alimentación adecuada, por cuanto esta depende, en gran medida, de la sustentabilidad de la producción pesquera y agrícola.

    Este artículo presenta una reflexión sobre las causas de la concentración de la tierra en Colombia, y la importancia de la reforma agraria en su contribución al desarrollo en el contexto del actual Plan de Desarrollo “Prosperidad para Todos”. El argumento central es que la tenencia de la tierra por motivos especulativos presenta una alta preferencia del público que destina sus recursos a esta, antes que a la adquisición de activos productivos, sacrificando así el desarrollo y el bienestar de la sociedad.

    Ecuador

    En una de las regiones más diversas del Ecuador, la Región Amazónica específicamente en las provincias de Orellana y Pastaza, se encuentra una de las áreas protegidas más significativas del país, el Parque Nacional Yasuní (PNY) declarado como tal en julio de 1979. Diez años más tarde, la importancia de esta zona llegó a ser reconocida a nivel internacional, cuando en 1989 la UNESCO proclamó al parque y sus alrededores como reserva de biósfera.
