20 milhões de fulânis vivem sem lar e sem paz: seu modo de vida e o preconceito espalham conflitos na África 

Os fulânis, também chamados peul ou fulbe, são um grupo de mais de 20 milhões de pessoas dispersas por 15 países, da costa atlântica do Senegal à densa selva centro-africana.

Despite the achievement of Constitutional democracy in 1994, 'the land question' is at the heart of South Africa's struggles to overcome the cumulative legacies of nearly 350 years of white minority rule. The emotive quality of land policies evokes painful legacies fuelled by disappointments with the official land reform programme ushered in by the new Constitution of 1996. There is broad agreement that land reform programmes have not fulfilled their aims to significantly redistribute land and productive agrarian capacity, strengthen land tenure for the majority, and settle the restitution claims of victims of land dispossession.

Transformed climatic conditions, manifested in either rapid-onset or slow-onset ways, can change how land and natural resources are accessed and used as geographical shifts in resource productivity, resource scarcity, and therefore land use patterns occur.
