A análise geográfica adotada na investigação incorpora as relações de gênero, trazendo para o debate a divisão do trabalho e o uso dos recursos naturais decorrentes tanto das diferenças sociais estabelecidas entre homens e mulheres como das variadas relações socioespaciais.

The implicit objective behind this requirement is to ensure that there is adequate capacity in the country to deal with adverse effects on the environment, forests, and other natural resources that the policies could trigger, even at the program design stage.

    Policy Papers & Briefs
    January, 2014
    Central African Republic

    Most analyses of violence in Darfur ignore the local dimension of the crisis, focusing instead on the region’s economic and political marginalization and climatic variability. However, agricultural change and other changes relating to the land-rights and land-use systems have led to competition and exclusion, and have played a major role in the collective violence that has raged throughout the region. Understanding these questions is essential for the successful resolution of political and policy debates in Darfur.
