    Vol 3, No 1: January 2020, Special Issue 1 on Land Policy in Africa

    Peer-reviewed publication
    January, 2020
    Cameroon

    Land capital occupies a prominent place in production activities in Africa. In forestry companies, women workers of production excellence, do not enjoy the same rights as the male agent in terms of access to land. This article attempts to question the foundations of this societal injustice while highlighting the various shadows that overwhelm women's tenure security in the forest zone. The major goal is to study in the event of looking for sustainable, inclusive solutions.

    Por investigaciones anteriores de WRI, sabemos que las tasas de deforestación en tierras indígenas de laAmazonía son considerablemente más bajas que entierras no administradas por pueblos indígenas. Ahora,hemos aprendido por este informe, que la minería industrial y la minería ilegal a pequeña escala se produceen más del 20 por ciento de las tierras indígenas de laAmazonía y que las tasas de deforestación en tierras indígenas donde existe minería son signi cativamente más altas que en las tierras indígenas sin minería.

    The fragmented land use administration in Indonesia

    Analysing bureaucratic responsibilities influencing tropical rainforest transformation systems

    Peer-reviewed publication
    February, 2015
    Indonesia

    Tropical forests in Indonesia are subject to major transformation processes from native forests to other land uses, including rubber agroforestry as well as rubber and oil palm plantation systems. Using content analysis of policy documents, this paper aims at (i) analysing the formal administrative responsibilities related to the four rainforest transformation systems and (ii) based on the informal motives of the competing bureaucracies involved generating hypotheses on their future course of action and related research.

    Indonesia's land reform: Implications for local livelihoods and climate change
    Peer-reviewed publication
    November, 2019
    Indonesia

    One of the main components of Indonesia's Just Economy policy is extensive and rapid land reform, which targets about 12% of the country's land area for redistribution to farmers and communities by 2019. Much of the reform is occurring on forest land. At the same time, the country has pledged a significant reduction of its greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, two thirds of which is to be achieved from forests. Hence agrarian reform potentially conflicts with emission reduction commitments.

    Land markets, Property rights, and Deforestation: Insights from Indonesia
    Peer-reviewed publication
    November, 2017
    Indonesia

    We examine the emergence of land markets and their effects on forest land appropriation by farm households in Jambi Province, Sumatra, using micro-level data covering land use and land transactions for a period of more than 20 years (1992–2015). Based on a theoretical model of land acquisition by a heterogeneous farming population, different hypotheses are developed and empirically tested. Farm households involved in forest land appropriation differ from those involved in land market purchases in terms of migration status and other socioeconomic characteristics.

    Meaningful work for mobile youth that enhances forest landscapes

    Reports & Research
    March, 2020
    Global

    This report explores how forest and farm producer organisations (FFPOs) can best nurture youth and address youth migration. Youth (15-24 years of age) bring energy and innovation to forest and farm production systems. Of a total global youth population of 1.2 billion, 85% live in developing countries where they make up the mainstay of the rural workforce. Yet, 75% of youth are currently classified as underutilised (unemployed; in irregular or informal jobs; or outside of formal education and training).

    Peer-reviewed publication
    February, 2019
    Kenya, Ethiopia

    Deforestation and forest degradation (D&D) in the tropics have continued unabated and are posing serious threats to forests and the livelihoods of those who depend on forests and forest resources. Smallholder farmers are often implicated in scientific literature and policy documents as important agents of D&D. However, there is scanty information on why smallholders exploit forests and what the key drivers are. We employed behavioral sciences approaches that capture contextual factors, attitudinal factors, and routine practices that shape decisions by smallholder farmers.
