    Scholars point to climate change, often in the form of more frequent and severe drought, as a potential driver of migration in the developing world, particularly for places where populations rely on agriculture for their livelihoods. To date, however, there have been few large-scale, longitudinal studies that explore the relationship between climate change and migration. This study significantly extends current scholarship by evaluating distinctive effects of climatic variation and models these effects on men’s and women’s responsiveness to drought and rainfall.

    As a global phenomenon, land grabbing has significant economic, environmental, and social impacts, often resulting in serious conflict between the local community and outsiders. The aim of the study is to get a deeper understanding of the extent to which land grabbing and resulting land-use conflicts affect the move towards sustainable forest management (SFM) in Cambodia. Two case studies were conducted involving community forests (CFs), with data collected through literature review, key informant interviews, focus group discussions, and field observations.

    MENA’s permanent cropland – currently at less than 6% of the total land area – is shrinking due to serious land degradation and recurrent droughts. The region faces the most severe water shortage in the world with annual renewable water resources per capita estimated to decline from 1,045 m3/yr in 1997 to 740 m3/yr in 2015.

    Land degradation occurs in all continents and affects the livelihoods of millions of people, including a large proportion of
    the poor in the drylands. Opuntiaficus-indica (L.) Mill. is a xerophytic cactus species, widely cultivated in arid and semi-arid regions
    worldwide. As most of species of the Cactacee family, 0. fiCUS-indica exhibits Crassulacean Acid Metabolism (CAM), with
    nocturnal stomata opening and C02 uptake occurring, typically, from dusk to dawn. Many reasons may account for the great interest

    Wildlife populations are declining severely in many protected areas and unprotected pastoral areas of Africa.
    Rapid large-scale land use changes, poaching, climate change, rising population pressures, governance, policy, economic
    and socio-cultural transformations and competition with livestock all contribute to the declines in abundance. Here we
    analyze the population dynamics of 15 wildlife and four livestock species monitored using aerial surveys from 1977 to

    Makueni District has experienced low crop production per unit area despite increased hectarage under crop
    production. The district relies heavily on farming for food and income generating activities for the households.
    However, poverty level has been on the increase due to poor crop production and limited diversity in sources of
    income. Analysis of field survey carried in the district shows high variability of soil nutrients (Nitrogen,
    Phosphorous, and potassium), Cation Exchange Capacity (CEC) and soil pH due to various land use systems
