    Increasing women’s access to land is crucial to fight hunger and poverty. However, gender disparities in land access remain significant in most countries, regardless of their level of development. A new FAO database helps to understand the factors that prevent women from accessing land; and to design better policies to effectively address this situation. rural development, hunger, food security, economic crisis, prices, agriculture

    The first order effect of a productivity increment in the output sector of a monocentric city which increase wages in the city is exactly capitalized in the increment in land rent in the city. We observe this result in the "open city" model in which a worker's utility level in city i is determined outside of city i.

    This chapter aims to be a guide for researchers and practitioners on choosing the most suitable approach to deal with a target or goal in terms of urban goods public decision support, and to integrate them into transport plans. First, an overview of urban goods stakes and goals of public planning actions is proposed, with a special focus on why urban goods is less studied and integrated in public policy actions than people transport. Then, an overview on diagnosis techniques is presented. These techniques can be survey-based or derived from data generation tools.

    The article examines productivity and efficiency of Polish individual farms, contributing to the policy debate on excessive fragmentation and the need for land consolidation. Data of a rural household survey conducted in the spring of 2000 show that Polish individual farms in the size range of up to 100 hectares have positive marginal productivity of land and increasing returns to scale. Among the individual farms surveyed, larger farms report higher household incomes from farm and non-farm sources combined.

    Abstract. This paper examines the optimal management of agricultural land through the use of non-crop inputs, such as fertiliser, and land uses that either degrade or restore productivity. We demonstrate the need to consider the relative total asset value of alternative crops over time. It is shown that higher prices for crops that degrade the resource base should motivate the use of short rotations with a remedial phase. An inability of land markets to reflect differences in resource quality and low capital malleability promote greater degradation.

    We evaluate how land use change and the value ecosystem services affect the decision to invest in public land acquisitions. Our application is for the state of Minnesota, and we consider the acquisitions by Department of Natural Resources over the last two decades. We calculate a return on investment (ROI) in conservation showing the increase in the value of ecosystem goods and services from public lands per dollar spent on acquisition.
