    Este informe examina los progresos que han realizado las autoridades para aplicar los elementos de restitución de tierras de la Ley 1448 con el fin de garantizar el derecho de los reclamantes de tierras a un recurso efectivo. Su objetivo es situar el actual proceso de restitución de tierras en el contexto de los intentos previos de los gobiernos colombianos de resolver los problemas asociados a la desigual distribución de la tierra y a la pobreza rural.

    Since 2007, capital markets have acquired a newfound interest in agricultural land as a portfolio investment. This phenomenon is examined through the theoretical lens of financialization. On the surface the trend resembles a sort of financialization in reverse – many new investments involve agricultural production in addition to land ownership. Farmland also fits well into current financial discourses, which emphasize getting the right kind of exposure to long-term agricultural trends and ‘value investing’ in genuinely productive companies.

    No mundo contemporâneo, o tema da alimentação “ecológica” tem sido cada vez mais discutido. Muitos estudos enfatizam aspectos técnicos e econômicos e colocam a produção agroecológica como oposta àquela convencional, que faz uso intensivo de agroquímicos. Este trabalho apresenta a trajetória de uma família de agricultores ecológicos – camponeses de origem pomerana – inseridos em uma comunidade em que a maior parte dos agricultores trabalha com a produção de fumo, em uma localidade rural do município de São Lourenço do Sul, no estado do Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil.

    Vers la reconnaissance des droits fonciers locaux

    Reports & Research
    June, 2014
    Burkina Faso

    Notre revue historique du droit foncier au Burkina Faso montre qu’il y a un lien entre construction juridique de la propriété et construction de l’État. En disant qui est propriétaire et qui ne l’est pas, de même qu’en disant quels sont les régimes de propriété reconnus et quelles sont les preuves des faits de possession sur lesquels ils reposent, l’État construit son rapport avec son territoire et les sociétés locales qui le peuplent.

    Kenya

    In Kenya, wildlife numbers have drastically declined due to land use changes (LUCs) over the past three decades. This has affected wildlife habitats by converting them into farmlands and human settlements. This study used remote sensing data from landsat satellite to analyze the changing land use patterns between 1980 and 2013 and their impacts on wild ungulates in KWE. The objective of the study was to map out LUCs, determine the possible causes of LUCs, and examine the effects of LUCs on wild ungulates.

    Conflict, forced displacement and health in Sri Lanka: a review of the research landscape
    Peer-reviewed publication
    November, 2014
    Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka has recently emerged from nearly three decades of protracted conflict, which came to an end five years ago in 2009. A number of researchers have explored the devastating effect the conflict has had on public health, and its impact on Sri Lanka’s health system - hailed as a success story in the South Asian region. Remarkably, no attempt has been made to synthesize the findings of such studies in order to build an evidence-informed research platform. This review aims to map the ‘research landscape’ on the impact of conflict on health in Sri Lanka.
