    Land Tenure Working Paper 14: Growing land scarcity and concern about land-related conflicts and rising levels of rural impoverishment have brought land to the fore once more. The main difference with the recent past is the wide spectrum of actors who want to take part in the elaboration of the land policies, as well as the more and more recognized need to root the proposals in the particular context of each specific country. The paper, focused on African experiences, starts by discussing the importance of Land Policy Issues at Regional Level.

    Forest resources could play a huge role in the development of the country. There is a range of NWFP used every day by the people in order to satisfy their basic needs, such as for food, medicine purposes, and other uses. The use of these products is recognized, but it is still very difficult to know how much they are used. There is very little available data concerning NWFP and no effort is made to acquire information to assist the sector in planning and ensuring its sustainable administration, management and use for the future generations as well.

    Land Tenure Working Paper 11. This co-publication of FAO and UN-HABITAT seeks to better understand and define the processes, mechanisms and institutions of governance of tenure in rural and urban areas. The paper recognises that excellent land policies, laws and technical reforms have been developed. However, in many cases their implementation has slipped, stalled or even been reversed. By adopting a governance and political economy perspective, the paper offers insights for the design of reforms and for the development of land governance tools.
