    Madagascar

    Une lettre du Président de la République Malgache sur la sécurisation foncière datée du 25 mai 2022 a annoncé le rétablissement des droits fonciers des occupants des propriétés foncières privées non titrées (PPNT) qui avaient été mis à mal par la loi 2021-016. La confirmation devrait être officialisée par le vote d’un nouveau texte par les députés et sénateurs avant la fin de la session parlementaire début juillet. Cette lettre a également annoncé l’organisation d’un Colloque National sur le Foncier du 8 au 10 juin.

    Colombia

    In the five years following its historic 2016 peace accord, Colombia has seen a surge of forest razing and land clearance amid continuing unrest in the countryside. The rate of tree loss, which greatly lowers the country’s chances of meeting its zerodeforestation goal by 2030, is tied to conflict and violence. These ties are complex. Deforestation began to rise soon after the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), which had operated mostly from rural areas, declared a ceasefire in December 2014. It then gathered steam after the 2016 accord was signed.

    China, India, Pakistan

    A border dispute between Indian and Chinese troops, the most dangerous in 45 years, has roiled relations in the High Himalayan valleys and plateaus separating India (Ladakh) and China (Aksia Chin). Against this barren landscape, ancient pathways connecting Central, South, and East Asia converge, making the area today a key nodal point of commercial and strategic interest to three nuclear powers, India, China, and Pakistan.

    Armenia, Azerbaijan

    On 27 September 2020, Azerbaijan went to war with Armenia on a scale not seen since the ceasefire of 1994. The conflict ended in another cease- fire on 10 November 2020, however, in addition to the theatre of war, the conflict has been prosecuted and continues to be fought post-ceasefire, through claims to cultural heritage which are employed in international organisations to substantiate the legitimacy of territorial claims.

    Cambodia, Thailand

    How can maps drawn over a century ago still lead to conflict between two countries? The Southeast Asian countries of Thailand and Cambodia are neighbors with a difficult history and a shared border. Their religious similarities have made sacred spaces along the border a divisive issue, with the sacred site of Preah Vihear a central point of controversy.

    Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan

    In late April, 2021, deadly cross-border violence resulted in the deaths of 36 Kyrgyz and 19 Tajik citizens.1 To say that the Kyrgyz-Tajik border is complicated would be an understatement. The Soviet collapse in 1991 transformed internal and often overlooked administrative boundaries into suddenly salient and internationally recognized state borders. Villages, farmland, pasture, and infrastructure once shared with little afterthought during the Soviet period today straddle sovereign nations. Exclaves make cross-border travel, commerce, and politics even more complicated.

    This is the PDF version of an online data story published by Land Portal on 28 April 2022.


    Colonial and apartheid land dispossession in South Africa was the most extensive of any country in sub-saharan Africa. Despite a land reform programme initiated after the transition to democracy in 1994, equitable access to land remains an unresolved question in both urban and rural areas.

    Africa, Uganda

    Cette étude utilise des données au niveau du ménage, de la parcelle et du terrain pour analyser l'effet de l'insécurité foncière et de la fragmentation des terres sur le choix des cultures. Nous utilisons les titres fonciers formels comme indicateur des droits fonciers de jure, et les droits de transfert perçus sur les parcelles comme indicateur des droits fonciers de facto.
