    Paper

    Dominant approaches to climate change mitigation are putting new pressures on small farmers and village dwellers, justifying dispossession by powerful actors who cast villagers' traditional ways of life as ecologically destructive or economically inefficient.

This dynamic makes the pursuit of socially just land policy ever more important and urgent, while at the same time creating new challenges.
