    Ce document aborde les politiques de gestion des pêches en Méditerranée au regard des nouveaux objectifs de durabilité et de gouvernance. L’emphase est placée sur la décentralisation de l’action publique et la réforme des mécanismes institutionnels. Le premier chapitre évalue les fondements historiques et sociétaux du dualisme pêche artisanale/pêche industrielle. Le rapport de force dialectique établi entre ces catégories socio-économiques découle des arbitrages opérés par les pouvoirs p ublics engagés dans une spirale interventionniste. Celle-ci a bouleversé les modèles séculaires d’organisation et de régulation décentralisés des communautés de pêcheurs. La similitude des cadres juridiques régissant l’accès aux pêcheries, les statuts de la profession et les champs d’intervention de l’administration font l’objet du chapitre deux. Le chapitre trois analyse les convergences institutionnelles des pays de la région. L’auteur identifie une suradministration et une ambivalence du rôle des organisations professionnelles. L’auteur souligne aussi plusieurs initiatives pour reconstruire les principes d’autorégulation des communautés et s’interroge sur la capacité des décideurs à s’engager vers des politiques d’allocation territoriales, et sur la capacité des communautés à assurer une fonction de régulation opposable aux segments industriels. Une priorité serait de valider juridiquement l’existence des communautés et leurs règles de gestion vernaculaires sur des territoire s qui seraient concédés.

    EU Transversal support to country implementation - Burundi
    Projet d’Amélioration de la Gestion et de la Gouvernance Foncière au Burundi
    2020
    Also available in:

    Since 2008, Burundi has been engaged in a land reform process to address the challenges of conflict prevention related to access to land (and other natural resources). Considered precarious and the source of many conflicts, the customary approach to land tenure is gradually being replaced by a decentralized land management system that places the country’s 119 communes at the forefront of the reform. In April 2010, the Government of Burundi adopted a land policy letter providing the main strategic directions of intervention. This led to the promulgation of a new land code in August 2011, which, among other innovations, introduces land certificates issued by communal land services and prohibits any allocation or transfer of public lands prior to the establishment of a land title. Inventory of state lands has become the prerequisite for the implementation of the new land legislation. The reform process is increasingly helping to open up land services authorized by law to issue a “land certificate” after a participatory procedure involving the neighborhood concerned and local officials. It is expected that in the long run, the low cost required to obtain land certificates and the relative speed of the procedure will convince a large majority of Burundians to be under the legal protection of this certificate to enjoy a peaceful possession of their lands. Since August 2017, 50 municipalities (40 percent) had a land service. Land tenure security is also part of the land reform in Burundi, through inventory of public lands and registration of the same.

    Guidelines on pesticide advertising
    International Code of Conduct on the Distribution and Use of Pesticides

    These guidelines aim to: provide information for governments and the pesticide industry to supplement Article 11 (Advertising) of the Code of Conduct, considering both self-regulation and statutory measures, in order to ensure compliance and best practice; suggest a framework for monitoring pesticide advertisements, and indicate steps to take when encountering non-compliance with national legislation or non-observance of the Code of Conduct; recommend best advertising practices, in order to ensu re observance of the Code of Conduct and compliance with relevant national legislation. These guidelines are aimed principally at government bodies responsible for regulating pesticide distribution and sales, and trading standards, in agriculture, public health and other pesticide use situations. They are advisory and aim not to create conflicts with existing laws and regulations. The guidelines will also provide directions for the pesticide industry, trade associations, those developing adverti sing or other promotional material for pesticide products, public interest organizations monitoring pesticide sales and distribution, and other interested parties.
