It studied characteristics of landslides in the considered seismic areas which are to be triggered by forthcoming earthquakes, defined a methodological approach for the prediction of earthquake triggered landslides estimated the risks for the two selected regions. By combining different methodological approaches it involved a close collaboration between the participating teams. Estimation of horizontal and vertical velocities of the active crustal movements in the Altai-Sayan mountain region are done using GPS space geodesy and gravimetry, supported by a combination of existing geological and geophysical studies. The main targets are:
Wherever early Bantu speakers started to develop a sedentary way of life, they left an archaeologically visible culture. The driving forces behind what is the principal linguistic, cultural, Rencontres culturelles de tervuren demographic process in Late Holocene Africa are still a matter of debate, but it is increasingly accepted that the climate-induced destruction of the rainforest in West Central Africa around 2, years ago gave a boost to the Bantu Expansion.
Compared to similar expansions of languages and peoples that occurred in other parts of the world during the Holocene, this dispersal stands out in three regards: This more or less contiguous distribution area crosscuts no fewer than twenty-three present-day countries on the African mainland.
In some of these countries, such as Burundi, Malawi, and Rwanda, Bantu languages are the only indigenous African languages. In others, situated in the northern and southern borderlands, other African language families are also present. In still others, such as the Central African Republic, Southern Sudan, and Somalia, Bantu languages are very marginal, not to say near to non-existent.

The remainder of the Rencontres culturelles de tervuren phylum, also known as Atlantic-Congo, prevails in sub-Saharan Western Africa, but has a distribution area which represents no more than a third to a half of the Bantu area. One in three Africans would speak one or more Bantu languages.
A recent study estimates the current-day Bantu speakers at about million. While the Niger-Congo phylum has an estimated age of 10, to 12, years, its low-level Bantu offshoot is believed to be no older than 4, to 5, years. The Bantu homeland has been situated there—quite unanimously—since the early s.
Similarly, the first southward expansions of Bantu speech communities were relatively slow. Only from then on did the Bantu Expansion start to gain momentum. About 2, years ago, Bantu-speaking societies are thought to have reached more or less simultaneously the Congo Basin, West Central Africa south of the forest, and the Great Lakes Region of Eastern Africa.
By the first centuries ce already, their descendants would have made their first appearance in parts of what is today South Africa, i. In less than two millennia they bridged the distance—more than 4, km as the crow flies—between Central Cameroon and South Africa. The vastness and the rapidness of the Bantu Expansion is even more remarkable if one takes into account that its north-south orientation is more than 1.
This observation is noteworthy, since it has been argued that continental axes of orientation have a decisive impact on the migration of human populations and other species and the accompanying diffusion of modes of subsistence, cultural traits, and technological innovations.
Moreover, early Bantu speech communities had to traverse the Central African rainforest block, which stretches out between the Sudanian savannahs of Western Africa with the Bantu homeland in their southern margin and the Zambezian savannahs of Southern Africa where the majority of Bantu speech communities live today.
These dense and humid forests situated in the northern part of the Bantu area imposed a major change in habitat on early migrant speech communities, which would have been a serious restraint on their dispersal, were it not that the Central African rainforest underwent a major climate-induced crisis, which started at its periphery around 4, years ago and struck its core around 2, years ago.
It is not only the principal linguistic, cultural, and demographic process in Late Holocene Africa; it has also become a hotly debated issue in African history and far beyond Africanist circles. Moreover, it has not remained without political repercussions, for example, in post apartheid South Africa, 10 but also elsewhere in the continent.
Linguistic Evidence for the Bantu Expansion The genealogical unity of the Bantu languages was already established in the 19th century, by Wilhelm Bleek around There also is no clear cut-off point between the two clusters. Quite the opposite, in fact. This high linguistic diversity is in line with the assumption that the earliest phases of the Bantu Expansion were characterized by a rather slow and small-scale dispersal of Bantu languages and speech communities.
The rest of the Bantu area is occupied by only four major branches, which emerged after the initial diversification of the family in the North-West. Three of them consist of languages spoken in the western half of the Bantu domain: It has been debated for a long time whether the Eastern Bantu branch split from the common Bantu trunk at an early stage and reached Eastern Africa after a movement north of the rainforest or whether it only emerged as the most recent subgroup subsequent to southward expansion through the rainforest and internal diversification in the West.DI GENNARO Joseph, , A la rencontre des Azande: note d'introduction pour une voie "Zande" à la spiritualité chrétienne, Recherche ethnographique au service de la pastorale, EMI Bologna / Rungu (Zaïre), 96 p.
