Land degradation and desertification are among the biggest environmental challenges of our time. In the last 40 years, we lost nearly a third of the world’s arable farmland due to erosion, just as the number of people to be fed from it almost doubled. That’s why the UN General Assembly declared 2015 as the International Year of Soils. And the good news is that this new report shows that while Africa remains the most severely a«ected region, the benefit of taking action across the continent outweighs the cost of implementing it: not just by a little, but by a factor of seven.

environmental and cultural significance. Kenya’s population continues to rely

million currently, has put enormous pressure on land. Only a third of Kenya’s
land is arable while the rest is arid and semi-arid. With most Kenyans still
living off the land, contestations over access to, control over and ownership

Urban Sprawl is the spreading out of a city and its suburbs over more and more rural land at the periphery of an urban area. This involves the conversion of rural land into built up, developed land over time. Sprawl is characterised by one or more existing patterns of development. Those most frequently mentioned are low-density, leapfrogging, distance to central facilities, dispersion of employment and residential development, and continuous strip development.

Few studies exist that show the relationship between urban transportation and urban structure in the developing world. As the developing countries become rapidly urbanized, there is growing need for adequate planning for a balanced urban development.

This paper looks at issues of gender and tenure in African customary law. It argues that under all systems of law in many African countries, ownership of land and associated resources is very much anchored in patriarchy. It decries the failure to isolate positive aspects of customary law and the preponderance of women-unfriendly customary law which influences statutory and other forms of law. Part II of the paper provides the conceptual and theoretical premises of the paper. It looks at patriarchy, gender and law and their impact on tenure relations emphasising the male dominance.
