    Rwanda, Uganda

    This paper explains the political and economic complexities of the ongoing Ituri crisis, focusing on the role of land. In Ituri, mineral-rich land is at the core of the crisis and therefore, at the core of the longer-term programming needed to restore food security. But food insecurity in eastern DRC has a history. The paper argues that the ambigous Bakajika land law, introduced in 1973 and responsible for the emergence of a vast class of landless people, lies at the root of large-scale poverty, insecurity and spiralling violence.

    The Crop Yield Simulation and Land Assessment Model for Botswana (CYSLAMB) has been developed to serve thd needs of land evaluation in a semi-arid environment. By modelling the interaction of environmental variables, physiological responses, inputs and management, CYSLAMB predicts the yield of a particular crop production system on a specified land unit. The use of actual rainfall data for individual years enables evaluation of interannual yield variability and quantification of risk in the specification of land suitability.
