- Detta är en avhandling från Human Ecology Division, Lund University
Sammanfattning : As a global society we are entering an era where land areas and land-based resources are coming to the fore once again for capital accumulation and economic growth, for the first time since the end of the 18th century when Malthus forecasted a contradiction between population growth and agricultural output. That constraint on economic growth, imposed by limited land areas, was overcome by the combination of fossil fuels (coal, oil) and appropriation of space overseas (colonialism, trade). LÄS MER

3. Large-Scale Land Acquisitions as a Driver of Socio-Environmental Change : From the Pixel to the GlobeDetta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science
Sammanfattning : A major challenge of our time is to sustainably produce food and other goods for a growing global population, without putting additional pressures on land and water resources and local people’s quality of life. Large-scale agriculture has brought many benefits to humanity in terms of food production but has also caused multiple sustainability challenges, including land and water degradation, deforestation, and biodiversity loss in areas of production.

4. Thirsting for Credible Commitments. How Secure Land Tenure Affects Access to Drinking Water in sub-Saharan AfricaDetta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg
Sammanfattning : Abstract The argument developed in this dissertation contends that access to drinking water is closely related to the institutional arrangements under which land is managed. However, while previous research goes astray in definitional debates over which form of land tenure – customary systems, state control, or private titles – best promotes increased water coverage levels, the argument here is that to be truly secure and stimulate citizen investments – in for example water infrastructure, wells, and housing – land tenure needs the backing of a credible governmental commitment.

5. Ecosystem Services and Disservices in an Agriculture–Forest Mosaic A Study of Forest and Tree Management and Landscape Transformation in Southwestern EthiopiaDetta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Department of Human Geography, Stockholm University
Sammanfattning : The intertwined challenges of food insecurity, deforestation, and biodiversity loss remain perennial challenges in Ethiopia, despite increasing policy interventions. This thesis investigates smallholding farmers’ tree- and forest-based livelihoods and management practices, in the context of national development and conservation policies, and examines how these local management practices and policies transform the agriculture–forest mosaic landscapes of southwestern Ethiopia.
