Land tenure dynamics in East Africa : changing practices and rights to land
Collection (editor); book; text, Created By Otto, Opira; Isinika, Aida; Musahara, Herman; Nordic Africa Institute and Published By Uppsala published in 2019
Agriculture remains the main source of livelihood for most rural people in East Africa. Farming is dominated by smallholders, of whom the majority are women. Their tenure and access to land is important for reducing rural poverty, enhancing food security and stimulating agricultural development. Secure tenure represents one of the most critical challenges to the development of sustainable agriculture in the region. In an effort to understand the land question and its variation across the region, this book analyses the land reforms, their context and dynamics.&#x...
Agricultural water institutions in East Africa
Collection (editor); book; text, Created By Beyene, Atakilte; Nordic Africa Institute and Published By Uppsala published in 2015
Climate change is causing growing variability and uncertainty in rainfall in Africa. Since the continent's food production systems are dominantly rain-fed, these changes are putting food security at even higher risk. In order to reduce this dependency, institutional reforms in the agricultural water sectors have become a priority in research and policy. In this report, Atakilte Beyene, senior researcher at the Nordic Africa Institute, together with twelve researchers based in Africa, studies current agricultural water reforms in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and other East ...
The Sahel crisis and the need for international support
Book; book; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Bøås, Morten and Published By Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI), Oslo, Norway; Uppsala published in 2019
The crisis in the Sahel is serious and multidimensional, and if it continues unabated it could have consequences far beyond the region. As the states of the region are too poor and weak to deal with this on their own, international support is needed. It is therefore a positive sign that the region of Sahel is higher on the international agenda than it has ever been. The challenge, however, is that current international approaches and interventions in the Sahel are more in line with short-term external priorities, such as stopping irregul...

From Aswan to Stiegler’s Gorge : small stories about large dams
Collection (editor); book; text, Created By Oestigaard, Terje; Beyene, Atakilte; Ögmundardóttir, Helga; Nordic Africa Institute and Published By Uppsala published in 2019
Dams, irrigation systems and hydropolitics are back on the geopolitical agenda. In recent years, we have seen an accelerating interest in large-scale water infrastructures, such as multipurpose dams and irrigation schemes, in the Nile Region and adjacent catchment areas. Governments in these regions are struggling to increase food security and to provide more energy in the face of industrialisation, climate change and rapid urban growth. The tension between countries over access to water will probably rise, as spells of drought increase in length and intensity. ...
