    This issue of Land Reform, Land Settlement and Cooperatives contains an interesting and

    wide-ranging set of contributions providing insights into land related issues ranging from

    Italy to the Central Andes, and from the historical development of sustainable tenure

    practices to aspects of agriculture sector planning.

    The eight articles featured open with that of Lavigne Delville, which addresses issues

    relating to insecurity of tenure in West Africa, and identifies what the paths of change

    FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) and other development partners are working together with countries to prepare Voluntary Guidelines that will provide practical guidance to states, civil society, the private sector, donors and development specialists on the responsible governance of tenure. By setting out principles and internationally accepted standards for responsible practices, the Voluntary Guidelines will provide a framework and point of reference that stakeholders can use when developing their own policies and actions.

    Many recent developments in coastal science have gone against the demands of European Union legislation. Coastal dune systems which cover small areas of the earth can host a high level of biodiversity. However, human pressure on coastal zones around the world has increased dramatically in the last 50 years. In addition to direct habitat loss, the rapid extinction of many species that are unique to these systems can be attributed to landscape deterioration through the lack of appropriate management.

    Soil sealing has been regarded as a key environmental problem since sealed soils lose several of their functions determining a reduction in land productivity and quality. Unfortunately, the analysis of changes in land-use carried out through the use of traditional data sources allows a relatively rough estimation of this phenomenon. The aim of this paper is to illustrate a procedure quantifying over time the soil sealing rate at the country scale. Italy was chosen as the study area due to its spatially-complex urbanization patterns.

    Multicriteria-Spatial Decision Support Systems (MC-SDSS) are increasingly popular tools in decision-making processes and in policy making, thanks to their significant new capabilities in the use of spatial or geospatial information. Many spatial problems are complex and require the use of integrated analysis and models. The present paper illustrates the development of a MC-SDSS approach for studying the ecological connectivity of the Piedmont Region in Italy.

    Hillslopes of the Radicofani area, in the upper valley of the Orcia River (southern Tuscany region, Italy), consist mainly of early Pliocene clayey sediments and are widely affected by frequent badland erosion. Reforestation with frugal conifers has been carried out in the area over the last 50years. The goal of the present study is to evaluate the impact of reforestation and land use change on erosion rates in nine small drainage basins through a multidisciplinary approach.

    In this article, we discuss the relationships between plant sociology and ecology and highlight the potential of plant sociology for ecological modelling and environmental assessment. The classification criteria for plant communities (characteristic combination of species, specific relationships with the physical environment, particular chorological and dynamical features) assign strong indicator value to phytosociological units.
