The social, environmental and economic dimensions of Land and in South Africa, Africa, and globally.
Land is the word we use to describe the surface of planet Earth which we inhabit. It includes all natural resources found in or on that surface. It is the foundation of the ecosystem that supports all life including our own, and it's the place where the climate changes are occurring.
At Land Justice we believe the totality of current human interaction with the land is unsustainable. A radical and complete alternative is required. In the process we can end hunger, poverty and war. Land is at the heart of all three. Without a radical alternative in human land use we will continue to drive our own destruction through worsening climate changes.
We have electronic and print databases on all aspects of land, land reform, land use and related which we are very happy to share with anyone.

Since 1998 I have been practically involved in land rights and land access issues in South Africa. This includes a community office providing paralegal advise and support to the victims of illegal evictions in the area around Hartbeespoort dam.
I have also researched through various media all articles, research reports opinion pieces etc relating to land in South Africa, SADC and pan Africa. The research covers all the social( including political), environmental and economic dimensions of land, land reform and land use, specifically including the role of land use in climate change and adaption and mitigation. Journalists and any other interested people are welcome to contact us for research materials and info on civil society, government, state, and private sector stakeholders in land.
