    Namibia

    Land tenure in Namibia is regulated by a variety of Acts, some of which date back to as far as 1937, and some of which are

    yet to be approved by Cabinet. This variety of Acts makes it difficult to evaluate the performance of land administration as a

    whole, and the appropriateness of coercive instruments with regards to urban land tenure in particular. In this article we

    evaluate how urban land tenure regularization practices are conducted in Namibia, and to compare new formal procedures,

    In the light of the global discussion on

    reducing public and private expenditure on

    cadastral processes and services, this

    article reviews the transaction costs of

    land registration, based on data gathered in

    Namibia. The data show a large

    differentiation in the types of costs

    incurred in the process, as well as various

    levels of cost recovery. In addition, the

    degree to which delays in the operational

    registration processes influence the total

    cost to land developers and landowners is

    reviewed.

    The Iberá wetlands, located in La Plata Basin, is a fragile ecosystem habitat of several species of flora and fauna and it also constitutes one of the largest inland freshwater of the world. In this study the hydroclimatologic response to projected climatic changes in the Iberá wetlands is assessed. Bias corrected temperature and precipitation data from four Regional Climate Models (RCMs) developed for the CLARIS-LPB project were used to drive the calibrated Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) hydrological model for different time slices.

    Cambodia

    This paper focuses on one community in Cambodia that won back land from a large land deal by grabbing onto the rupture in property relations initiated by a one-year land titling campaign. I document the struggle between competing legibility and illegibility projects which I examine through two moments, one of the state choosing to see its population and their relations to territory, and another in which the state’s excuses for not recognizing smallholders’ claims began to falter.

    Ecosystem service-support tools are commonly used to guide natural resource management. Often, empirically based models are preferred due to low data requirements, simplicity and clarity. Yet, uncertainty produced by local context or parameter estimation remains poorly quantified and documented. We assessed model uncertainty of the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation – RUSLE developed mainly from US data. RUSLE is the most commonly applied model to assess watershed-level soil loss.

    Malaysia, Asia

    Sarawak, Malaysia, is home to a wide range of native fruit tree species (NFTs) that contribute to the livelihoods of rural women and men. Yet, most agricultural research in the area, and elsewhere, has focused on commercial, non-native species, and the economic potential of lesser-known NFTs has often been overlooked. What is more, little attention has focused on research for development tools that can build on the local ecological knowledge of both men and women while supporting forest-based livelihoods and biodiversity conservation.
