    Malawi, Mozambique, Western Africa, Ghana, Sierra Leone

    This paper is one of three thematic case studies resulting from a set of pilot projects undertaken jointly by civil society and private business partners from 2016–2019 in five countries in sub-Saharan Africa. These pilots sought to test how private companies could collaborate with civil society organisations and other stakeholders to implement responsible agribusiness investments that recognise and respect community land rights, and to develop innovative tools and approaches that could be adopted and implemented at greater scale.

    This document aims to contribute to the empirical development of effective approaches for the assessment of rangeland governance at local levels, and provide insights about major governance drivers through the quantitative assessment of their effects. Our focus is an application of the Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) methodology to assess key variables that affect the probability of good rangeland governance under contrasting contexts of land tenure in Southern Tunisia.

    The Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other research, predict a significant future increase in the frequency and intensity of heavy rainfall events in many regions. This increase runoff and soil erosion, and reduce agricultural productivity, as well as increasing risks of flood damage to crops and infrastructure. Implementing adaptation measures and improved land management through erosion control and soil protection are among those that protect water and agriculture and limit their vulnerability.

    Tunisia, Northern Africa

    In response to the severe economic, social, and environmental costs of degradation across Tunisia’s rangelands, the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) has worked with the General Directorate of Forestry (Direction Générale des Forêts, DGF) to draw up a new pastoral code. This code could facilitate a more sustainable governance regime that also delivers for pastoral communities. Inclusive and practical, the code also offers a framework for other countries experiencing degradation in rangeland areas.

    The Chinyanja Triangle (CT) is an area inside the Zambezi
    River Basin, inhabited by Chinyanja-speaking people
    sharing a similar history, language and culture across
    the dryland systems of the eastern province of Zambia,
    southern and central regions of Malawi and Tete Province
    of Mozambique. Chiefs and Chiefdoms play a critical role
    in decision making and influencing social relationships. The
    Zambezi River, which originates in the Kalene Hills in Zambia
    is joined by ten big tributaries from six countries, and is

    Egypt, Northern Africa

    The agricultural development on newly reclaimed lands has led to many national debates about food
    security and budget deficits, and the living conditions of the new settlers at the local level. This debate
    is still crucial for present day Egypt, a country facing major challenges, including food security, agriculture
    modernization, employment generation, and land fragmentation due to dramatic population growth.
    In this context, policy makers are always seeking the best land allocation system for these new lands. This

    Jordan, Western Asia

    The dry rangelands of West Asia and North Africa are fragile and severely degraded due to low rainfall and mismanagement of natural resources. Rainwater harvesting (RWH) interventions are used to increase soil moisture content, vegetation cover, and productivity. However, adoption of rainwater harvesting by communities is slow. To understand adoption constraints and to develop options for sustainable integration of rainwater harvesting, a benchmark watershed was established in the dry rangelands of Jordan.

    South Africa

    With this State of Land Information Report we seek to provide an overview of existing data and information on key land issues. Our aim is to uncover the many different sources of land data and information in South Africa and thus provide a basis to substantiate, refute or nuance the often-repeated rhetoric that there is a lack of land data. To this end, we developed an original scoping and assessment methodology building on existing internationally recognized and well-known frameworks.
