    Sri Lanka

    ABSTRACTED FROM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: 

    This review does not attempt to be comprehensive. Instead, we highlight:

    • benchmarks in the evolution of land use policies in Sri Lanka;

    • the actual contribution made to decisions about land use by systematic information on land resources.

    Recommendations are made to provide better support for decision-makers at all levels. A summary of legislation, a list of agencies responsible for planning and land resources data and an extensive sourced bibliography are provided.

    Kenya

    The Kenya Government has over a number of years pursued policies geared towards the promotion of secondary towns. Included in this strategy is the achievement of an orderly and coordinated urban land development. However, experience from these towns indicates that, planned land development has encountered a lot of bottlenecks particularly in relation to the institution of private ownership of land. This paper traces the land tenure systems that have existed in the Kenya’s secondary towns.

    La mise en valeur des ressources minérales est habituellement présentée comme consistant en l'extraction des produits min&aux (m&aux) pour importation dans le but d'obtenir des devises; toutefois, dans le présent document, je voudrais me concentrer sur un autre aspect de l’exploitation minière. Je voudrais traiter l'exploitation minière comme le mécanisme propre à stimuler le développement économique national.

    Depuis un peu plus de vingt ans, le Gouvernement guinéen multiplie des efforts pour faire aboutir le projet MIFERGUI, qui vise l'exploitation de 420 millions de tonnes de réserves prouvées de fer du gisement de Pierré Richaud, dans les monts Nimba. L'une des contraintes- et pas des moindres- à sa réalisation, est la préservation de l'environnement de cette région de la Guinée, dont une partie a été classée patrimoine mondial, en raison de la richesse de la faune et de la faune dont certaines espèces sont très rares au monde.

    The aim of this report is not to raise and analyze the various constraints facing the development of river and lake basins but merely to assess the programme of our organizations set up over decades. Indeed, time available for drafting this report and the data available to us did not allow scrutinizing certain issues relating to the development of river and lake basins. This report made use of data contained in another report prepared in 1989 and supplemented by other data gathered in the process of drafting this report.
