    Mozambique

    A experiência económica de Moçambique é frequentemente  apresentada como  um  exemplo  de  sucesso  na  promoção  de  rápido  crescimento  com estabilização e redução da pobreza. O grau e a robustez do sucesso económico moçambicano  são  determinados  pela  magnitude  das  taxas  de  variação,  isto  é, por quanto é que a economia cresce e a pobreza reduz, e por quão estáveis são (ou  por  quão  pouco  variam)  os  indicadores  monetários,  chave  da  abordagem monetarista de estabilização (inflação, reservas internacionais e taxa de câmbio).

    Tanzania

    New commercial pressures on land and its impact on small producers is one of the major issues being discussed in both national and international arenas. As foreign states and corporate entities continue to exert pressures on African countries to acquire land for various investment purposes, Tanzania is not exempted. The country is stereotypically perceived as having large underutilized, or rather unexploited, fertile land – the so-called ‗virgin land‘.

    Considerable hype and debate are currently surrounding the potential of biochar (charcoal created through the burning of biomass in low oxygen environments) in climate change mitigation and agriculture. This report attempts to summarise the arguments, assumptions and interests in the biochar debate and offer reflections on its prospects. The report begins by outlining what it calls the triple-win of biochar. The production of biochar can be tuned to release bioenergy or biofuels in the form of syngas and bio-oil, thus providing decarbonised biomass fuel.

    Zambia

    In the name of development, governments in southern Africa are reformulating land policies to facilitate privatisation of customary land rights. It is argued that this can stimulate land markets, (foreign) private investment, access to formal credit, and enhance security of tenure (by way of holding title), thereby leading to economic growth and poverty alleviation.
