Abstract

Land is an essential resource and plays a vital role in providing food and food security, water, ecosystem services and territorial resilience. However, the past few decades have generated enormous and increasingly unsustainable pressures on land use. The objective of this research is to analyse the main land use changes in Spain between 1987 and 2011 using data provided by the Corine Land Cover (CLC) project. The general trends in land use change at CLC level 1 in this period, and more specifically the changes occurring at CLC level 3 in land destined for agricultural use are analysed. The main reasons that explain these changes, including policy influences, are then identified. The results show that the area occupied by buildings and infrastructure has doubled, agricultural land has decreased and irrigated land has increased; forested areas have also increased, but their ecological quality has been degraded. These trends question the future sustainability of that land use in the analysed period.

Abstract

The ever-increasing environmental crises and the subsequent decay of the earth is a veritable call for concern which has stimulated man’s consciousness vis-à-vis his own very existence and his natural surroundings. There is therefore, the need for continuous resistance against the socio-cultural, political and economic manoeuvres that place man and his environment at extreme ends. This paper, therefore, focuses on the study of Bole Butake’s play: Lake God. It adopts both the eco-critical and eco-feminist approaches and hypothesizes that Butake’s depiction of a panoply of issues that centre around the female body and the land foreshadow a quest to overcome ecological and female oppression in order to render the land a more fertile ground for sustainable development and female empowerment. The paper contends that Butake’s play resonates a feminist self-consciousness which is suggestive of the need to seek alternative means of combating land exploitation in order to sustain a symbiotic relationship between man and his eco-space. In reading Butake’s work from an eco-feminist perspective, this paper intends to show that the characters he creates and the milieu in which they are positioned place the woman in a precarious state. Drawing therefore, from the global tenets of eco-feminism which posit that the woman and nature are related based on their history of domination and exploitation, this paper intends to revisit the eco-space and female agency in Butake’s work to postulate that the woman has the power to preserve the land and to create a healthy and conducive atmosphere. The paper, thus, exemplifies the author’s admiration for one’s native land which must be treasured and protected.

Abstract

The purpose of this research is to: (1) analyzing the principles and substance of the relevant spatial responsive and sustainable; (2) analyzing the institutional and mechanism/procedure as what to support spatial responsive and sustainable; (3) finding a model of spatial perspective responsive and sustainable. For further research of a normative law (legal research) by using a philosophical approach, the statute approach, the conceptual approach and the historical approach. The results obtained are: First, the spatial arrangement of the elements is part of the Environment. Therefore, the principle or principles in the management of the Environment shall apply mutatis mutandis also applies to the arrangement of space; second, the substance of the arrangement of space includes the planning, utilization, control utilization of space. The elements in the content material are an organic unity that cannot be separated from one to another; Third, institutional spatial planning there is still a dependent institutional, structural or still the subordination of the other institutions. In addition, mechanisms or procedures in spatial stats still lead to Institutional responsive spatial planning and sustainable (top down approach).
