    A Blockchain-based Land Title Management System for Bangladesh

    Bangladesh

    Bangladesh is a small country with a large population. Its increasingly developing economy further makes land a lucrative source of fixed capital. On the other hand, land titling is a cumbersome and lengthy process, where different government bodies process different sets of documents, and bureaucratic loopholes encourage fraudulent activities by organized people. As a result, the current model suffers from good governance.

Pire encore, les nouvelles mesures et analyses publiées dans le présent rapport de synthèse montrent qu’elles sont sensiblement plus élevées qu’annoncé précédemment.

    Ivory Coast

    Cet article analyse l’histoire de la Côte d’Ivoire en matière de certification des terres de 2004 à 2017, en passant au crible les variables de l’économie politique qui causent des frictions et ralentissent les programmes d’enregistrement des droits fonciers dans les pays africains. Sont ainsi identifiées les inégalités régionales, les inégalités sociales, et les différences régionales dans les institutions foncières préexistantes comme des facteurs qui entravent la réforme foncière.

    This study explores how knowledge was and is mobilized to advance the objectives of the Beaver Hills Biosphere Reserve, located in Alberta, Canada. Established in 2016, a 12-year collaborative effort worked to establish the biosphere reserve and achieve formal UNESCO designation. Subsequent efforts to grow the newly established biosphere reserve have accelerated in recent years. Our study documented how different types of knowledge were accessed, created, curated, and shared between partners during these two time periods.

    Tanzania

    We set out to unveil gender inequality with respect to women’s access to family land following the surge in tree-planting in selected villages in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania. Specifically, the study describes land-transaction procedures at the household level and shows how the lack of women’s involvement in such land transactions affect their access to and control over family lands. Gender inequality is portrayed in a variety of social and economic activities, with women being deprived of access to, control over, and ownership of land.
