    The fourteen countries of East and Central Africa under discussion are at differing stages of economic and research development, and as a

    scientific personnel, equipment and financial provision, for carrying

    out effective research on agriculture and its allied disciplines.

    Sierra Leone

    In Sierra Leone, the well-being and livelihoods of many people, particularly the rural poor, are based on secure and equitable access to land, fisheries and forests. Increasing pressure on these resources in recent years has led to an escalation of conflict over access to natural resources.

    La distinción entre el derecho a la propiedad y el derecho de propiedad importa tanto en lo dogmático constitucional como en lo constitucional procesal, en la medida en que las garantías instituidas se activen suficientemente para proteger su oportuno ejercicio. Es necesario que los criterios de aplicación se homogenicen con el propósito de interpretar los derechos y la garantías de manera efectiva.

    Las redes organizativas de los campesinos costeños en algunas zonas de Guayas y Los Ríos fueron muy importantes en la década de 1970 cuando la reivindicación principal era la tierra. Esto cambió después de 1980 con la existencia de otras demandas campesinas que no pudieron ser resueltas por las organizaciones. Sin embargo desde 1990 se observa la aparición de organizaciones de segundo grado articuladas por la Iglesia Popular que se sustentan en las comunidades eclesiales de base cuya acción busca la satisfacción de múltiples demandas de los pequeños productores rurales.

    Contract farming (CF) is attractive as a possible private-sector-led strategy for improving smallholder farmers’ welfare. Yet many CF schemes suffer from high turnover of participating farmers and struggle to survive. So far, the dynamics of CF participation have remained largely unexplored.

    Fragile states, posing a major challenge of our times, are increasingly becoming a focus of attention in international politics and development cooperation. But very often, the viewpoint of the people affected by fragile statehood is not sufficiently heard. Parts of the international community prioritize their own security policy interests, the motto being the «war on terrorism». People in fragile states, by contrast, are primarily concerned with their own survival and the quest for development opportunities for themselves and their communities.
