    Sudan

    To mitigate the disastrous consequences of COVID-19, IFAD has committed itself
    to supporting affected rural people in many countries, including Sudan, through the IFAD-established Rural Poor Stimulus Facility (RPSF). Additional support
    of US$747,650, requested by the Government of Sudan to help 5,000 families
    of small-scale farmers in the three states of Kordofan and in Sennar state,
    has been approved. This will contribute to mitigating the negative impacts of COVID-19 on small-scale producers.

    Africa

    For the past few decades, efforts to strengthen women’s land rights in many sub-Saharan African countries have primarily focused on a single approach: systematic registration through individual/joint certification or titling. While registration — individually or with a spouse — may support tenure security in specific contexts, the sheer complexity of land governance practices and tenure arrangements across the continent (both formal and customary) often render an emphasis on systematic titling inadequate.

    Ethiopia

    Land in Ethiopia is held by the state, who acts as a custodian for the Ethiopian people. Even though it is the state which controls land ownership, farmers and pastoralists are guaranteed a lifetime ‘holding’ right that provides rights to use the land, rent it out, donate, inherit and sharecrop it. Everything except sell and mortgage it. On paper and under existing formal laws, women have equal rights to men as far as use and control of and access to land is concerned.

    High-Resolution Global Maps of 21st-Century Forest Cover Change
    Peer-reviewed publication
    November, 2013
    Global

    Quantification of global forest change has been lacking despite the recognized importance of forest ecosystem services. In this study, Earth observation satellite data were used to map global forest loss (2.3 million square kilometers) and gain (0.8 million square kilometers) from 2000 to 2012 at a spatial resolution of 30 meters. The tropics were the only climate domain to exhibit a trend, with forest loss increasing by 2101 square kilometers per year.
