Land Stakeholders & Institutions

Land Stakeholders & Institutions

A stakeholder is anyone or any institution who has interests in, or is affected by, an issue or activity or transaction, and therefore has a natural right to participate in decisions relating to it. 

There may be more than one stakeholder, or stakeholder group, claiming an interest in the land use on a particular area of land.

As examples, a farmer is a stakeholder in relation to the distribution or management of irrigation water from a common source, or as regards decisions on grazing rights on communal land. The term can also be applied to groups, as when several groups have an interest in, or are affected by, the exploitation of the water from a reservoir or products extracted from a forest. Stakeholders include those individuals or groups, such as women or indigenous communities, who have genuine and legitimate claims on use, but whose opinion may not be valued in current negotiations for cultural or religious reasons. Groups resident outside the area, such as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and research institutions, can also be stakeholders. Also the government of a country may have ministries with the position of stakeholders. The concept can be extended to include unborn generations who have a future interest in the resource.

Apesar de a MP já ter sido enviada à sanção, o ministro do Supremo Tribunal Federal (STF) Luís Roberto Barroso concedeu liminar determinando a votação, pela Câmara, de emendas aprovadas pelos senadores.

Tribespeople say individual ownership could lead to fragmentation of land

Edamalakudi’s Oorukkoottam — assembly of people in the tribal hamlet and officials — arrived at an unusual decision last month: no individual household in the panchayat would individually own forestland as guaranteed by the Forest Rights Act.

O ministro da Agricultura, Capoulas Santos, classificou esta terça-feira de ineficaz a legislação do anterior Governo que permitiria identificar os proprietários de terrenos florestais sem dono conhecido, numa reação a críticas da líder do CDS/PP, Assunção Cristas.

"Essa legislação, produzida pela doutora Assunção Cristas [ex-ministra da Agricultura] e que nós queremos agora alterar para melhor, foi de tal modo ineficaz que, em três anos, apenas permitiu identificar dois prédios sem dono conhecido", disse esta sexta-feira aos jornalistas Capoulas Santos
