    Vietnam

    In the wake of reforms to establish a free market in land-use rights, Vietnam is experiencing a pronounced rise in rural landlessness.

The authors' theoretical model suggests that removing restrictions on land markets will increase landlessness among the poor, but that there will be both gainers and losers, with uncertain impacts on aggregate poverty.

    Ethiopia

    While the economic returns to using
    chemical fertilizer in Africa can be large, application

    missing and imperfect markets. Results based on a panel
    survey of Ethiopian farmers suggest that while fertilizer
    markets are not altogether missing in rural Ethiopia, high
    transport costs, unfavorable climate, price risk, and
    illiteracy present formidable hurdles to farmer

    world must be to improve smallholder agricultural
    productivity, especially in Africa. Smallholder productivity
    is essential for reducing poverty and hunger, and more and
