    Presumption of a direct causal link between formalisation of property rights
    and economic productivity is back on the international development agenda.
    Belief in such a direct causal relationship had been abandoned in the early
    1990s, following four decades of land tenure reform experiments that failed to
    produce the anticipated efficiency results. The work of Hernando de Soto has
    provided the springboard for this revival. De Soto argues that formal property
    rights hold the key to poverty reduction by unlocking the capital potential of

    Kenya

    This study exemplifies the relationship, commonly found in developing countries, between the domain of public law and the sphere of property law. More particularly, the study examines the place of aliens in Kenya with respect to property rights, notably rights to land. The Kenyan Constitution expressly deals with the question of discriminatory laws. Section 82(4)(a) allows the making of laws that discriminate between citizens and noncitizens. This gives validity to the various statutory provisions that restrict the acquisition of property by aliens.

    Syrian Arab Republic

    After eight years of civil war, parts of Syria are now free from conflict. In recognition of the return to peace, the government officially welcomes back all who fled the country to escape violence.

    In dryland Africa, access to land and water resources are central to pastoral livelihood activities. Policy intervention in these regions represents the outcome of concerted post-independence processes in which countries have committed to land tenure transformation as a policy objective. This was meant to create private, liberal property rights to replace communal customary tenure systems which were considered to be a constraint to development. Despite these efforts, decades of scientific research indicate that countries are still struggling to meet environmental sustainability objectives.

    The climate crisis demands urgent action, yet we live in a politically polarized and paralyzed world. As governments and other actors struggle over climate change, our environment is irreversibly changing. A United Nations report on the Global Assessment of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services revealed that three-quarters of the earth’s land-based environment has been significantly altered by human actions.
