Land resources Management - rural and urban development projects
A workshop on land resources management for rural and urban development projects was held in Nay Pyi Taw, yesterday. President U Thein Sein gave a speech, saying that the government will be able to settle landless people on newly-developed plots in accordance with urban and rural development plans after identifying the real landless people. Granting land to landless people is an important task in the process of socio-economic development and poverty. Regarding some of the main challenges in villages and towns, the President highlighted shortage of drinking water, lack of proper drainage and traffic congestions due to population increase, influx of migrant workers and increase of squatters along roads and railway lines. In conclusion, he urged the participants to invite the public to help draft rural and urban development plans and to adopt systematic measures for land use in accordance with policies, laws, rules and regulations. At the meeting, Vice president U Nyan Tun also said that land resources management should be more transparent and link social and environmental issues, solves land disputes and set up a common goal for land-use. The land resources management should be taken into consideration of local requirements, the values of land alternative ways of land use in order to develop an effective system. The economic experts and officials from various ministries also discussed socio-economic development, environmental conservation and land-related cases.

Land Use
018 - Land Use In this video Paul Andersen explains how land is developed for human use. Urbanization has occurred through the last century as people have moved to cities in large numbers. Transportation and the arrival of the car have led to urban sprawl and urban blight. Smart growth can be used to mediate some of the ecosystem impacts. Land is also preserved in parks, refuges, and wilderness areas. Do you speak another language?

REDD+ Mozambique: Empowering Rural Communities Towards Sustainable Forest Management
With 70% of forest cover, Mozambique has promoted a system of forest concessions, community management and forest governance. Charcoal is still produced from native forests, leading to immense pressure on natural resources, and way beyond its regeneration capacity. It has proven effort on how to make the forest sector contribute to its national development plans, help grow the economies, reduce rural poverty, while being environmentally sustainable. Local communities in Mozambique work toward strengthening natural forest management to ensure sustainable use of forest resources that will increase benefits to them and add value to forest their products. This video is part of a series featuring results under the REDD+ (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation Initiative), a system of financial incentives for more sustainable forest management. It depicts forest communities’ livelihoods, drivers of deforestation and its human impacts in Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo, Republic of Congo, Ghana, Liberia, and Mozambique.

Clean Water the Key to Changing Lives in Rural Sri Lanka
In Sri Lanka, women are assumed to be the main beneficiaries of projects improving the supply of water and management of sanitation. Women are traditionally responsible for cooking, cleaning, and taking care of the family and are highly affected by problems associated with water supply. During dry periods, women have to manage limited resources between household needs and for gardens surrounding their houses. Produce from gardens is an important contribution to food security. Women often have to share water with other households or walk great distances to find alternative sources. The government of Sri Lanka is working to reduce the time women spend fetching water, the burden of carrying heavy loads, and the time spent taking care of children suffering from waterborne diseases.

Carolyn Berg - New Model for Groundwater Management in Rural-Agricultural Basins
New Model for Groundwater Management in Rural-Agricultural Basins Carolyn K. Berg1, County of San Luis Obispo, [email protected], CC +18057815536 John Diodati2, County of San Luis Obispo, [email protected], CC +18057882832 California’s Central Coast Hydrologic Region relies on groundwater for approximately 80 percent of its water supply to serve rural, urban, agricultural, and environmental demands. San Luis Obispo County, one of six counties within this region, has 22 groundwater basins underlying 3,304 square miles of largely rural and agricultural lands. Historically, these groundwater basins have had no requirements to manage groundwater. However in January 2015, the State enacted its first major groundwater law – the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) – that requires local agencies to establish governance structures in order to sustainably manage groundwater resources. Some groundwater basins have adequate existing local agencies capable of this task; others do not. This topic will briefly overview potential management strategies being considered in local basins. Speakers will focus discussion on a unique case study of a governance model developed by stakeholders in the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin (Paso Basin). Stakeholders in this basin worked with Assemblyman Achadjian to introduce AB2453, a bill that created the opportunity to form California’s first hybrid water district. The intent was to have a board of directors that reflected the unique demographics of the basin. Instead of a basin comprised solely of agricultural interests, the Paso basin has a diverse mix of rural residential, commercial wineries, irrigated agriculture (vineyards, deciduous fruit, forage crops & vegetables) and livestock. Landowners on a weighted ‘one acre-one vote’ methodology elect traditional water districts board of directors. AB2453 modifies this practice by instituting a hybrid nine-member board reflective of the various land uses in the Paso Basin. Three members have to be registered voters living within the district boundary, and would be elected by registered voters living within the district boundary. The remaining six seats would be filled by landowners, but broken further into three categories of small (less than 40 acres), medium (40 – 40 acres) and large (greater than 400 acres) landowners. These members would be elected by an acreage vote, similar to traditional water districts. Creation of the water district is subject to a formation vote by landowners and funding approval under Proposition 218. The water district application was reviewed by the Local Agency Formation Commission in order to establish boundaries and powers, and the landowner formation vote and Proposition 218 funding vote are scheduled for March 2016. At the time of the conference we will know the results of the elections, and will be able to discuss next steps based on those outcomes.
