The article problematises legal issues surrounding women's rights to land and related resources. It avers that in a plural legal context, there is need to engage all forms of law if law is to be an effective medium for challenging gendered notions of access to, control over and ownership of property. This is a key challenge in East African countries seeking to frame property and natural resource policies and laws that promote development

Most early alley cropping studies in semi-arid Kenya were on fairly flat land while there is an increase in cultivated sloping land. The effectiveness of aging contour hedgerows and grass strips for erosion control on an about 15% slope of an Alfisol was compared. The five treatments were Senna siamea hedgerows with tree prunings applied as mulch to crops (H + M), hedgerows with crops with prunings removed (H), mulch only applied to crops (M), crops with Panicum maximum grass strips (G), and a sole crop control of a rotation of maize (Zea mays) and cowpea (Vigna unguiculata).

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

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.

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.
