    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).

    Kenya

    In Kenya, insecure land tenure and inequitable access to land and natural resources have contributed to conflict and violence, which has in return exacerbated food insecurity. Most farmers in Kenya have no legal title for the land on which they farm. Sources of tenure insecurity can be ethnic conflicts over land between neighbouring communities, particularly in the Northern provinces, expropriation by the state or local government and land grabbing by local elite or companies. Competition is as well growing over water, especially over groundwater, which is scarce in Kenya.

    Land plays a vital and central role in the economic, social-cultural and political lives of both individuals and communities. Given its centrality in the socio-economic and political spheres, national goals such as economic development, poverty reduction, social and political stability are closely linked to land. Land provides the livelihood base for the bulk of the population especially in the rural areas where agriculture is the main occupation. Despite their importance, land and environment in Kenya have suffered decades of mismanagement that has led to the current state of degradation.

    Matters of environmental migration are frequently looked at from a humanitarian perspective.1 This policy brief will instead look at it with a lens focusing on land issues. The question of environmental migration is inevitably linked to the question of land for several reasons. First, climate and environmental change trigger and accelerate the loss of land due to sea-level rise, coastal erosion, landslides and other forms of land degradation.
