    Land degradation is a serious problem that crosses national borders, ecological zones and

    socio-economic levels. It can be especially devastating for the world’s poorest people living

    in dryland areas. The Land Degradation Assessment in Drylands (LADA) project, executed

    by FAO with funding from UNEP, GEF and others, assesses the causes and impacts of

    land degradation at global, national and local levels in order to detect hot spots and identify

    remedial measures. LADA approaches land degradation as a biophysical, social, economic

    As this book shows, farmer field schools have proven to be a very useful approach for helping

    African farmers to improve how they manage their land and water. Numerous projects throughout

    Africa have shown that they result in improved soils, better yields and higher incomes for farmers.

    The document summarizes some of these experiences, points out successes, and – equally important

    – shows constraints and gaps that need to be addressed. Particularly important is the list of policy

    One out of every three people on earth is in some way affected by land degradation. Latest

    estimates indicate that nearly 2 billion ha of land worldwide – an area twice the size of China

    – are already seriously degraded, some irreversibly. This includes large areas of cropland,

    grassland, woodland and forest areas whose degradation reduces productivity, disrupts vital

    ecosystem functions, negatively affects biodiversity and water resources, and increases

    vulnerability to climate change.

    The problematic relationship between land tenure, food security and conflict has recently generated a considerable body of research. Land disputes are increasingly recognised as dynamic processes that are generated by (perceived) land tenure insecurity. Conflicts, however, can also lead to intensified struggle for land, especially when politico-military elites seek to consolidate their power base and reward their supporters by extending control over land as part of their war strategies.

    This paper explains the political and economic complexities of the ongoing Ituri crisis, focusing on the role of land. In Ituri, mineral-rich land is at the core of the crisis and therefore, at the core of the longer-term programming needed to restore food security. But food insecurity in eastern DRC has a history. The paper argues that the ambigous Bakajika land law, introduced in 1973 and responsible for the emergence of a vast class of landless people, lies at the root of large-scale poverty, insecurity and spiralling violence.
