    O quadro legal e institucional, construído historicamente, que regulamenta a propriedade e a posse da terra no Brasil tem sido responsável por vários tipos de problemas fundiários no país que vão desde os conflitos de terras rurais, a ausência de moradias urbanas, as ocupações de terras rurais e urbanas (por alguns, chamadas de invasões), o desmatamento das florestas tropicais, a grande concen- tração da terra tanto rural quanto urbana à insegurança jurídica da terra em geral.

    Las etapas iniciales del asentamiento fronterizo en la Amazonia brasileña se caracterizaron
    por la gran intensidad de la afluencia de flujos migratorios, la deforestación y la rotación
    de la propiedad. Cuarenta años más tarde, los hogares rurales están más orientados
    al mercado y han desarrollado estrategias para adaptarse al ambiente local. A partir
    de teorías sobre la demografía de los hogares y de la renta ofertada (bid-rent), en este
    trabajo se propone un marco conceptual para los cambios en el uso y la cobertura de

    Bangladesh, United States of America, Southern Asia

    Changing dietary preferences and population growth in South Asia have resulted in increasing demand for wheat and maize, along side high and sustained demand for rice. In the highly productive northwestern Indo-Gangetic Plains of South Asia, farmers utilize groundwater irrigation to assure that at least two of these crops are sequenced on the same field within the same year. Such double cropping has had a significant and positive influence on regional agricultural productivity. But in the risk-prone and food insecure lower Eastern Indo-Gangetic Plains (EIGP), cropping is less intensive.

    Global

    Forest conversion in the tropics is increasingly driven by global demand for agricultural forest-risk commodities such as soy, beef, palm oil and timber. In order to be effective, future forest conservation policies should include measures targeting both producers (the supply side) and consumers (the demand side) to address commodity-driven deforestation.

    Norway, United States of America

    With international food price shocks in 2008 and 2011, food security became a political priority in many countries. In addition, some politicians have recently adopted a more nationalistic stance. Against that background, this paper critically investigates the prospects of increased food production within a national context. We use a small, high-income country, Norway, as an empirical case. In 2012, the government set a goal of increasing agricultural food production by 20% by 2030. We ask: 1) How has food production in Norway developed before and after the goal was set?
