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.

Esquerda e progressismo são hoje duas coisas diferentes na América Latina. Entrevista especial com Eduardo Gudynas (Brasil)

Thursday, March 30, 2017

Nos últimos anos, a América Latina viu diversos de seus países serem governados por partidos progressistas e ligados à esquerda: o Partido dos Trabalhadores no Brasil, o kirchnerismo na Argentina, os bolivarianos na Bolívia, no Equador e na Venezuela, e a Frente Ampla, no Uruguai. Embora tenham suas raízes na esquerda, porém, esses governos “são um tipo de esquema político diferente da esquerda que lhes deu origem. Esquerda e progressismo são hoje, na América Latina, duas coisas diferentes”.

Grace Mugabe, l’épouse du président Robert Mugabe, semble au-dessus de la loi. Des policiers ont fait irruption la semaine dernière dans une ferme pour expulser ses habitants, détruisant les habitations. Malgré une ordonnance de justice intimant l’ordre de cesser tout déguerpissement, c’est manu militari que les forces de l’ordre ont agi sous l’ordre de la première dame.

Era mais um dia normal para o McDonald’s. Até o momento em que galinhas de dois metros de altura invadiram as lojas da rede na Europa e se acorrentaram aos pés das mesas.

E não foram os únicos. “O presidente do McDonald’s nos ligou e deu o ultimato: ‘Resolvam este problema’”, recorda Mark Murphy, diretor global para sustentabilidade da Cargill.
