Dispute resolution is a key component of land administration and management in Kenya. Article 162 of the Constitution of Kenya provides for the establishment of the Environment and Land Court (ELC) by an Act of Parliament. Further, parliament is mandated to determine the jurisdiction and functions of the courts. In 2011, parliament passed the Environment and Land Court Act through which the Environment and Land Court was established. In accordance with the provisions of this act, the court is mandated to ensure reasonable and equitable access to its services in all counties.

Climate change is a significant and growing threat to food security—already affecting vulnerable populations in many developing countries, and expected to affect ever more people in more places, unless action is taken beginning today. Current scenarios for business-as-usual farming under climate change project growing food security challenges by 2050. Worst hit will be underdeveloped regions of the world where food insecurity is already a problem and populations are vulnerable to shocks (Rosegrant et al. 2014).

A manhã de hoje foi de desolação nas aldeias afetadas pelo fogo que lavra desde domingo, em Alijó, no distrito de Vila Real, com a constatação comum a várias pessoas que vivem da agricultura: perderam tudo.

“Fiquei sem anda, perdi tudo: pinheiro, castanheiros”, desabafava Sónia Cardoso, junto à outros populares no cruzamento de Chã, que dá acesso a várias aldeias.

Sónia tem propriedades nas quatro frentes do fogo e nos quatro sítios, diz, ficou sem nada.
