Case Study: Kenya’s investment in innovation for sustainable agricultural intensification

Diciembre, 2020
Sri Lanka

Agriculture plays a key dual role in Kenya. It provides livelihoods for 75% of the country’s population and supports 80% of its rural population. Crucially, it helps the country to meet its food security goals, which is increasingly challenging with Kenya’s population doubling over the last 25 years. Agricultural innovation in general, and SAI innovation in particular are important for Kenya given this central role of agriculture in Kenya along with the key role Kenya plays in East Africa.

Aménagement foncier agricole, forestier et environnemental : un outil foncier décentralisé

Training Resources & Tools
Agosto, 2020

L’aménagement foncier agricole, forestier et environnemental, jadis dénommé remembrement, est un mode d’aménagement du territoire ayant pour objet la restructuration foncière. Il vise la constitution d’unités de production d’un seul tenant ou à grandes parcelles, pour améliorer l’exploitation des propriétés, assurer la mise en valeur des espaces naturels ruraux et contribuer à l’aménagement du territoire communal ou intercommunal. Impliquant de nombreux acteurs, il trouve son origine au XVIIIème siècle et n’a cessé d’évoluer depuis.

Rururban Partnerships: Urban Accessibility and Its Influence on the Stabilization of the Population in Rural Territories (Extremadura, Spain)

Peer-reviewed publication
Agosto, 2020
United States of America

The process of population concentration in cities is a worldwide phenomenon—not yet finished—which has led to a widespread rural exodus and abandonment of rural areas. In Spain it occurred very abruptly from 1960, leaving numerous population centers abandoned in the northern half of the country. It is the so-called “empty Spain”. This problem has recently transcended from the local to the European level and has become part of all political agendas such as “the fight against the demographic challenge”, which the European Commission will finance in the next programming period 2021–2027.

Peacebuilding in rural Colombia— A collective perception of the integrated rural reform (IRR) in the department of Caquetá (Amazon)

Diciembre, 2019

The 2016 peace agreement between the Government of Colombia and the FARC-EP created institutional space for an effective implementation of needed rural reforms. However, the change of power structures also contains risks, like the deterioration of natural resources and the strengthening of other armed groups. By addressing collective perceptions regarding the Integrated Rural Reform (IRR), this paper shows the consequences of the peace agreement for the rural population in the department of Caquetá. Additionally, it presents the main challenges for further departmental development.

The future of smallholder farming in India: Some sustainability considerations

Diciembre, 2019

The biodiverse, predominantly crop-livestock mixed-farming in India is key to ensuring resilience to climate change and sustainability of smallholder farming agroecologies. Farmers traditionally grow diverse crops as polyculture, and agriculture is mainly organic/biodynamic with spirituality in food systems deeply ingrained.

Climate vulnerability assessment of the Espeletia Complex on Páramo Sky Islands in the Northern Andes

Diciembre, 2019

Some of the largest impacts of climate change are expected in the environmentally heterogeneous and species rich high mountain ecosystems. Among those, the Neotropical alpine grassland above the tree line (c. 2,800 m), known as Páramo, is the fastest evolving biodiversity hotspot on earth, and one of the most threatened. Yet, predicting climate responses of typically slow-growing, long-lived plant linages in this unique high mountain ecosystem remains challenging.

Mapping settlement systems in China and their change trajectories between 1990 and 2010

Journal Articles & Books
Diciembre, 2019

A wide variety of settlement systems exist, ranging from small villages to large metropolises. However, spatial analyses are typically confined to the mere presence or absence of built-up land and the changes therein, while more subtle differences between various settlement systems are ignored. In this paper we study the spatial distribution of Chinese settlements in terms of their built-up land, cluster density and cluster size, as well as their changes between 1990 and 2010.
