    Based on a broad literature review, this publication discusses rural women’s time poverty in agriculture, elaborates on its possible causes and implications and provides insight into the various types of constraints that affect the adoption of solutions for reducing work burden. This paper raises questions about the adequacy of women’s access to technologies, services and infrastructure and about the control women have over their time, given their major contributions to agriculture.

    De plus en plus d’éléments tendent à démontrer que l’investissement dans le secteur agricole des pays en développement est l’un des moyens les plus efficaces pour réduire la pauvreté et la faim. Les investissements agricoles peuvent produire des avantages très divers en faveur du développement. On ne peut cependant pas s’attendre à ce que ces avantages se produisent automatiquement, et certaines formes d’investissement à grande échelle comportent des risques pour les pays hôtes.

    Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia

    The International Development Law Organization (IDLO) and the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) assessed the legal frameworks for major resource sectors in Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique to analyze whether and to what extent they enable sustainable investments. Relevant international standards suggest that sustainable investments integrate socioeconomic and environmental concerns, bound together by the rule of law.

    Mozambique

    Quarenta anos após a conquista da independência, a 25 de Junho de 1975, Moçambique continua a viver sob um clima de incerteza política em que os dois principais partidos, a Frelimo e a Renamo, estão quase sempre em conflito. Com efeito, após cerca de vinte anos de relativa paz, resultante da assinatura do Acordo Geral de Paz (AGP) em Roma, em 1992, que pôs fim a um conflito militar de quase dezasseis anos (1977-1992), o País voltou a viver momentos dramáticos entre 2013 e 2014, quando os dois beligerantes se confrontaram de novo militarmente.

    Mozambique

    Ces dix dernières années, le Mozambique est devenu une cible privilégiée de la ruée mondiale vers les terres. Les investissements croissants dans les secteurs de l’exploitation minière, des hydrocarbures, des plantations de forêts et de l’agriculture industrielle visent le plus souvent des terres rurales qui, en vertu du droit coutumier, sont détenues par les communautés locales. En découlent de fréquents conflits entre les communautés et les investisseurs.

    Mozambique

    Mozambique has become a hot spot in the global rush for land in the last decade. Growing investments in sectors such as mining, hydrocarbons, forest plantations and industrial agriculture most often target rural land held by local communities under customary law, and conflicts between communities and investors often arise. Existing laws regulating land are poorly implemented and enforced, which is due to the power imbalances existing between the government, companies and local communities.
