Data were drawn from the Taking Action Project: Using arts-based approaches to develop Aboriginal youth leadership in HIV prevention.

    This yearbook chapter discusses the link between international investment law and commercial pressures on the world’s natural resources. It argues that changes in legal frameworks are redefining control over natural resources, and facilitating transitions toward more commercialised land relations. As pressures on resources increase, many national laws undermine the rights of people impacted by investments. If not properly thought through, international treaties to protect foreign investment could compound shortcomings of local and national governance.

    In 2005, massive hurricanes battered communities along the Gulf Coast of the United States. In the aftermath, thousands of families who lived on land passed down to them informally by parents and grandparents learned that because they lacked clear formal title to their properties, they were ineligible for disaster assistance to rebuild their homes. Related title issues in other regions kept families from developing inherited lands and allowed predatory developers to use court-ordered partition sales to grab long-held properties for pennies on the dollar.

    „Kísértet járja be Európát és Észak-Amerikát: az erdőpusztulás kísértete.” Ezzel a drámai hangvételű mondattal kezdődik a World Resources 1986. évi kötetének erdőkkel foglalkozó része, ami a 70-es években kezdődött nagyarányú erdőpusztulás világméretű „jajkiáltása” volt, melynek visszhangja: „Mentsétek meg a Föld erdeit – amíg nem késő, amíg van mit megmenteni és megőrizni!” Nemzetközi tudományos, világméretű társadalmi fórumok témájává vált az erdő. Az emberiség egyre jobban ráébredt arra, hogy az erdő az emberiség létfeltételeinek elengedhetetlen része.
