As part of a scoping study titled Land Governance for Climate Resilience: A review and case studies from LAND-at-scale projects headed by Richard Sliuzas, Emeritus Professor, University of Twente, IOM explored how climate plays a role in the UN-led Saameynta Joint Programme in Somalia. In this context, climate change is increasingly recognized as a multiplier of insecurity and fragility, where climate-related sudden and slow-onset disasters are driving people to leave their land and migrate. While migrating allows people to find alternative livelihoods and enhance their climate resilience, it can also be associated with instances of maladaptation to climate change. As such, this case highlights durable solutions in climate-driven urban sprawl in Baidoa.

Raíces de la agricultura cubana. Históricamente, hasta antes de la Revolución, el modelo y la práctica agrícola cubana eran el resultado de dos circunstancias particulares: la herencia colonial y la llegada del capital estadounidense.

Burundi has the world’s highest hunger score and around 45 percent of the population is affected by food insecurity. The country copes with increasing scarcity of land as a result of increasing population size, returnees and IDPs and climate change. With the majority of Burundians depending on agriculture for their food and livelihoods, land scarcity makes this reliance on agriculture precarious. This pressure on land causes elevated levels of land disputes with over 55% of all court cases being related to conflicts over land.

Scaling as the way forward: defining and understanding scaling

Lisette Meij

Scaling is at the heart of both the name as well as the strategy of LAND-at-scale. Scaling and scaling potential are key in the way the program was designed and is reflected in the three pillars chosen to realize the aim of the program. The first pillar is about scaling successful initiatives and projects; the second pillar focuses on land governance innovations with scaling potential; and the third pillar covers knowledge management, with a focus on gaining a deeper understanding on the conditions required to make scaling successful.

Recuento de seminario web: La Seguridad de Tenencia la Tierra Revisada

21 Diciembre 2022

A menudo se considera que reforzar la seguridad de la tenencia es una condición previa para mejorar los medios de vida, la resiliencia y el uso sostenible de los recursos. Las intervenciones del programa LAND-at-scale , financiado por la Netherlands Enterprise Agency - RVO (Agencia Empresarial Neerlandesa) emplean una serie de métodos para lograr la seguridad de la tenencia, como la mejora de los sistemas de cartografía y registro de tierras.
