Conflitos da terra, uma reforma agrária que não conserta nunca, já nasceu errada…(Brasil)

…e vai ficar difícil de consertar, isto pelo fato de o governo não ter feito a coisa de forma correta, e a gora depois de anos, vai ser difícil de consertar, a menos que o povo se conscientize de como fazer a reforma agraria e se adequar, ao programa, sem política, sem partidos políticos, e sem ideologias e politicagens, isto só para consertar o que deveria ter sido feito da melhor forma possível.

Mudanças na reforma agrária reforçam importância do Incra (Brasil)

Thursday, March 16, 2017

A edição da Medida Provisória 759/2016 e a perspectiva do desbloqueio das ações do Incra por parte do Tribunal de Contas da União (TCU) dão ao Incra a possibilidade de, após anos, implementar plenamente as políticas de reforma agrária. Esta é a avaliação do presidente da autarquia, Leonardo Góes. Ele acredita que o novo marco regulatório permitirá ao instituto adquirir terras a um custo menor, racionalizando investimentos na área de obtenção.

Also available in

Formal land titles are rare in pastoral communities around the world. In the past, this presented hardly any problems, since pastoral land was seen as of little use by most outsiders.

Land Registration and Titling from an Economist's Perspective: a Case Study in Rural Thailand

Also available in

The establishment or upgrading of cadastres and land registration systems is viewed by many as an essential infrastructure investment to be considered by less developed countries. Nevertheless, while many will agree that cadastres and land registration are useful, a decision to actually invest in establishing or expanding these activities will be easier to undertake if it is demonstrated that the resulting benefits are higher than those of other public investments. The purpose of this paper, therefore, is to report the results of a recent study undertaken in rural Thailand.

Internal and external discourse of communality, tradition and environment: Minority claims on forest in the northern hills of Thailand

Also available in

ABSTRACTED FROM THE INTRODUCTION: This paper addresses the question of land rights and forest conservation for those on the periphery, i.e. the minority hill-dwelling population, specifically, the Karen. Over the past century, the hill-dwelling Karen in Thailand have transformed their subsistence agriculture from that based primarily on swidden cultivation in secondary forests on the lower hill slopes towards wet-rice cultivation in irrigated paddy fields. In either case, the Karen are in a no-win situation.
