    The increasing demand for rural land and its natural resources is creating competition and conflicts. Many interested parties, including farmers, nature conservationists, rural residents and tourists, compete for the same space. Especially in densely populated areas, agriculture, recreation, urban and suburban growth and infrastructure development exert a constant pressure on rural areas.

    Het aantal ouderen neemt toe. Bij veel ouderen groeit de financiële armslag, maar dat gaat gepaard met een kleinere dagelijkse actieradius. Verwacht mag worden dat dit tot meer aandacht zal leiden voor de kwaliteit van de directe woonomgeving. Voor het landschapsbeleid biedt dit uitgelezen mogelijkheden. Toegankelijkheid is hierbij wel een punt van zorg. Dit is één van de verwachtingen in het nieuwste katern in de serie ‘Anticiperend Landschapsbeleid’

    Het ministerie van LNV vraagt zich af of het beleidsthema sociaal-economsiche vitaliteit en leefbaarheid structureel moet worden toegevoegd aan de ILG bestuursovereenkomsten. Het idee bestaat namelijk dat het rijk, provincies moet ondersteunen in de uitvoering van beleid op het gebied van sociaal-economische vitaliteit en leefbaarheid. Om hierover uitspraken te doen bevat dit rapport een analyse hoe provincies het beleidsthema tot nu toe zelf invullen, welke problemen en successen ze daarbij ervaren en wat ze van LNV verwachten

    Land Information System (LIS) for Land Administration and Management in Bangladesh
    Peer-reviewed publication

    Bangladesh

    Bangladesh has a very high population density. Scarce land and the rapid increase of population of the country are creating high pressure over land-man ratio. Land ownership record system is insufficient and incomplete in Bangladesh. As a result, it spills out jumbled and spontaneous land development throughout the country, especially in the major cities. In this situation, it is important to establish a compatible land administration and management system for establishing a systematic approach for planned land development.

    ABSTRACTED FROM INTRODUCTION: This paper traces the implications of key agrarian transformations −particularly the reforms in land policy and emerging land relations− for livelihood security and vulnerability. Part of a broader societal transformation and globalization of economies, these new development trajectories include commercialization of farmers’ produce, contract farming, cooperative sector reform, rising landlessness and tenant farming, and the end of exclusive dependence on land for earning a living.

    Laos

    This paper seeks to reconsider the contemporary relevance of the resource frontier, drawing on examples of nature's commodification and enclosure under way in the peripheral Southeast Asian country of Laos. Frontiers are conceived as relational zones of economy, nature and society; spaces of capitalist transition, where new forms of social property relations and systems of legality are rapidly established in response to market imperatives.

    Namibia

    Land tenure in Namibia is regulated by a variety of Acts, some of which date back to as far as 1937, and some of which are

    yet to be approved by Cabinet. This variety of Acts makes it difficult to evaluate the performance of land administration as a

    whole, and the appropriateness of coercive instruments with regards to urban land tenure in particular. In this article we

    evaluate how urban land tenure regularization practices are conducted in Namibia, and to compare new formal procedures,

    Argentina

    En este trabajo proponemos una mirada comparativa de la expansión territorial de las provincias argentinas de Buenos Aires y Santiago del Estero entre las décadas de 1850 y 1890. Mediante la conjunción de estudios regionales verificamos los mecanismos de apropiación de las tierras públicas, la emergencia de un aparato legal que intentará regular las prácticas de ocupación y la incorporación de agentes económicos de alcance regional y nacional, en algunos casos invirtiendo en ambas provincias.
