    The farming system at landscapes preserving and restoring soil fertility of agricultural lands have been developed. Typification of lands was made and the types of agricultural landscapes were allocated: plain, hollow-gully, and gully-field. The analysis of the current structure of arable areas was made and resulted in the assessment of structure's influence on the state of soil fertility. The main degradation processes reducing the fertility of south chernozems were studied. There were proposed the ways of creating the sustainable artificial agricultural landscapes.

    The concept of landscape has been increasingly used, in the last decades, in policy and land use planning, both in regard to so-called “special” and to “ordinary” or “everyday” landscapes. This has raised the importance of local and public participation in all issues that refer to landscapes and the definition of the groups that “have a stake” in the landscape.

    Esta cita subraya un fenómeno que los agricultures, particularmente los de las áreas secas marginadas, llevan años experimentando: la amenaza de la desertificación y el cambio climático para sus vidas. El secuestro de carbono, sin embargo, tiene una doble utilidad para revertir esta amenaza: en primer lugar, el calentamiento global puede ser mitigado significativamente mediante la eliminación del dióxido de carbono de la atmósfera y su secuestro en el suelo; en segundo lugar, el aumento de carbono en el suelo tiene un gran valor como activo para la producción de alimento.

    Ce message pessimiste met en évidence un phénomène que les agriculteurs des zones arides marginales connaissent depuis des années, là où la désertification et le changement climatique sont une menace concrète. La séquestration du carbone peut cependant être un moyen de lutte efficace : d’une part, elle permet d'atténuer de façon significative le réchauffement planétaire en transférant dans les sols le CO2 atmosphérique ; d'autre part, le carbone ainsi stocké dans le sol constitue une ressource importante des processus de production alimentaire.

    The message in this short, yet stark sentence highlights a phenomenon that farmers, particularly in marginalized dryland areas, have been experiencing for years – the threat of desertification and climate change to their lives. Carbon sequestration, however, serves a dual purpose to remedy this threat. Firstly, global warming can be mitigated significantly by removing atmospheric carbon dioxide and sequestering it in soil. Secondly, increased carbon in the soil has great value as a food-producing asset.

    This article examines the evolution of policy recommendations concerning rural land issues since the formulation of the World Bank’s “Land Reform Policy Paper” in 1975. That paper set out three guiding principles: the desirability of owner-operated family farms; the need for markets to permit land to be transferred to more productive users; and the importance of an egalitarian asset distribution.

    Customary Rights and Societal Stakes in the Copperbelt of Zambia

    Reports & Research
    January, 2011

    This paper analyzes the implications of copper mining in Zambia on customary rights to land and forests, and the societal stakes associated with foreign investment in the mining industry. Copper mining affects forests, and in turn the people with customary rights to those forests, in a number of direct and indirect ways, from deforestation during green site development and selective harvesting of timber to the significant but indirect pressures over forests through infrastructure development and the population pull effect of mining towns.

    Agrarian changes in Nyimba, Zamba
    Reports & Research
    May, 2012

    Over the past decade issues pertaining to land sharing/land sparing have gained some space in the debate on the study of land-use strategies and their associated impacts at landscape level. State and non-state actors have, through their interests and actions, triggered changes at the landscape level and this report is a synthesis of some of the main findings and contributions of a scoping study carried out in Zambia as part of CIFOR’s Agrarian Change Project. It focuses on findings in three villages located in the Nyimba District.
