Property rights are a cornerstone of economic development and social justice, and data on perceptions of security of property rights are required to monitor global initiatives such as the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Forests and Fisheries and the Sustainable Development Goals. Yet, perceptions of security of tenure have never been assessed at the global level, preventing a clear understanding of the magnitude and nature of citizens' experience of security and insecurity related to crucial assets such as housing and land.

This book exposes the key land use and environmental problems facing Kenya today due to lack of an appropriate national land use policy. The publication details how the air is increasingly being polluted, the water systems are diminishing in quantity and deteriorating in quality. The desertification process threatens the land and its cover. The soils are being eroded leading to siltation of the ocean and lakes. The forests are being depleted with impunity thus destroying the water catchments.

Os camponeses, pescadores, pastores e outras pessoas que trabalham em áreas rurais produzem a maioria da comida saudável e diversa que comemos todos os dias. Na Europa e em todo o mundo, desempenham um papel central para assegurar a soberania alimentar das nossas comunidades e a resiliência do nosso sistema alimentar face às alterações climáticas. Contudo, as pequenas propriedades estão a desaparecer rapidamente e a agricultura camponesa está sob ameaça devido à expansão da agricultura industrial, à acumulação de terras e ao desmantelamento do apoio público.

This study aims to examine current land access and youth livelihood opportunities in Southern Ethiopia. We used survey data from the relatively land abundant districts of Oromia Region and from the land scarce districts of Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples' (SNNP) Region. Although access to agricultural land is a constitutional right for rural residents of Ethiopia, we found that youth in the rural south have limited potential to obtain agricultural land that can be a basis for viable livelihood. The law prohibits the purchase and sale of land in Ethiopia.
