Trajectory of Land Reform in Post-Colonial African States: The Quest for Sustainable Development and Utilization

Trajectory of Land Reform in Post-Colonial African States: The Quest for Sustainable Development and Utilization by Adeoye O. Akinola
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 188 Pages | ISBN : 3319787004 | 3.73 MB

This book is an examination of post-colonial land reforms across various African states. One of the decisive contradictions of colonialism in Africa was the distortion of use, access to and ownership of land. Land related issues and the need for land reform have consistently occupied a unique position in public discourse in Africa. The post-colonial African states have had to embark on concerted efforts at redressing historical grounded land policies and addressing the growing needs of land by the poor. However, agitations for land continue, while evidence of policy gaps abound.

Securing Our Natural Wealth: A Policy Agenda for Sustainable Development in India and for Its Neighboring Countries By Debashis Bandyopadhyay
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 195 Pages | ISBN : 9811088713 | 3.06 MB

This book explores various aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) regimes with regard to plant-variety protection and farmers’ rights; traditional knowledge; geographical indications, genetically modified crops; and access to genetic resources within the broad ambit of Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS), the Convention of Biological Diversity and other treaties/protocols. Enumerating the governance provisions for India and some of its neighboring countries, including Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Thailand and Myanmar, the book synthesizes a policy agenda to drive sustainable development. Further, it assesses and interprets the status quo, and discusses key issues and implications. By comparing various governance frameworks in South Asian countries, it attempts to bridge policy issues concerning development, IPR and international studies.
