    Africa, Rwanda

    Although increased global demand for
    land has led to renewed interest in African land tenure, few
    models to address these issues quickly and at the required
    scale have been identified or evaluated. The case of
    Rwanda's nation-wide and relatively low-cost land

    policy and local plans which incorporate risk assessments;

    South Sudan is a new country of 10.5

    economic disparities, political exclusion and deprivation in
    the distribution of political and economic power between the

    tendered as the proximal causes of the conflict, at the
    center of the prolonged civil war was the struggle for
