    While scholars agree on the importance
    of land rental markets for structural transformation in
    rural areas, evidence on the extent and nature of their
    operation, including potential obstacles to their improved
    functioning, remains limited. This study uses
    household-level data from six countries to start filling
    this gap and derive substantive as well as methodological
    lessons. The paper finds that rental markets transfer land

    Lesotho began a structural economic
    transformation in the early 1990s. The transformation has
    brought higher, more secure incomes to households while the
    government succeeded in dramatically improving access to
    services such as education, health, water, and
    transportation. Yet today, Lesotho faces a number of serious
    development challenges, including a high rate of chronic
    poverty, entrenched income inequality, and most troubling

    The year 2016 marks 15 years since the new wave land reforms became operational in Tanzania. Despite its ambitious goals – encouraging land registration and titling, and empowering women and other vulnerable groups – the results are disillusioning.

    Advancing the Land Rights of Pastoralist Women in Northern Tanzania

    Policy Papers & Briefs
    December, 2013

    In northern Tanzania, new grassroots groups called Women’s Rights and Leadership Forums (WRLFs) are mobilizing women and men in pastoralist communities to promote and defend local land rights. This briefing highlights some of the WRLFs’ achievements and strategies; asks how these forums, which appear to be a part of an emerging grassroots social movement for land rights, can be further supported; and explores whether such forums could be replicated elsewhere in the region

    A Estratégia de Segurança Alimentar e Nutricional (ESAN II) resulta da evolução da
    ESAN I aprovada pelo Governo de Moçambique em 1998, através da Resolução Interna
    16/98. A ESAN I foi elaborada na sequência da Cimeira Mundial de Alimentação
    (CMA), realizada em Roma em 1996, quando os diversos países se comprometeram a
    reduzir a fome para metade até 2015. Este objectivo coincide com o Objectivo número
    um do Desenvolvimento do Milénio (ODM), aprovado na Cimeira do Milénio, em 2000.

    Este artigo junta-se aos esforços de muitos outros africanos, entendendo-se por pobreza não só os níveis de rendimento por dia por pessoa, mas também a pobreza como ausência de poder nas relações intra-familiares, entre estas e os demais actores e entre a sociedade no seu todo e os recursos naturais de que se dispõe no Continente Africano.

    In pastoral societies women face many challenges. Some describe these as a ‘double burden’ – that is, as pastoralists and as women. However, pastoral women may obtain a significant degree of protection from customary law even if customary institutions are male-dominated. In periods of change (economic, social, political), this protection may be lost, and without protection from statutory laws, women are in danger of “falling between two stools” (Adoko and Levine 2009).
