Centre for Development and Environment



CDE focuses on:

- management of natural resources,

- integrated regional development, and

- interventions that mitigate syndromes of global change.



CDE places special emphasis on:

- highland-lowland interactions, and on

- high-potential – low-potential

- centre – periphery relationships.



CDE employs disciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches. Linking analysis and synthesis, and combining high-end and low-end methods, such as GIS-based earth observation and participatory field-based approaches, are typical of our programmes.



CDE supports the principles of subsidiarity, empowerment and partnership, while acknowledging the importance of research, planning and decision-making at regional, national and international levels.

In Sub-Saharan Africa, the popular perception of rangelands and their management is that these vast areas have major problems without solutions: the common narrative focuses on overgrazing, herds of undernourished livestock, erosion and desertification, drought, famine, and conflict.

However, evidence compiled and analysed in this book show that such a view of rangelands – as being unproductive and mismanaged systems – does not reflect reality. It needs reconsideration and revision.

The Mekong region – Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam – is in the midst of profound social and environmental change. Despite rapid urbanization, the region remains predominantly rural. More than 60 per cent of its population live in rural areas, and the vast majority of these people are engaged in agriculture.

Land acquisitions continue to be an important trend

Large-scale land acquisitions continue to be an important issue for governments, development organisations, NGOs and farmers’ organisations all over the world; this remains the case even in times of global economic slowdown, recession and crisis. The scale of this trend and its significant impacts on rural transformation and livelihoods make it necessary to further monitor, observe and positively influence such deals wherever possible.
