    The purpose of this policy note is to
    contribute to an understanding of the factors that combine
    to constrain the development of smallholder agriculture in
    Swaziland. It seeks to shed light on why, despite being
    well-endowed in land and water resources, and despite having
    a climate that is generally favorable for the production of
    crops and livestock, Swaziland is obliged to import
    substantial amounts of food to feed the population. Also,

    Mozambique

    Agriculture and fisheries are the main pillars of Mozambique's economy, having contributed in the last few years to more than 25 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP) and around 7 to 11 percentage points of the rate of economic growth. Agricultural development in Mozambique has been part of the government agenda because it is crucial to reducing poverty within rural zones.

    Mixed evidence on the impact of formal title in much of Africa is often used to question the relevance of dealing with land policy issues in this continent. The authors use data from Uganda to assess the impact of a disaggregated set of rights on investment, productivity, and land values, and to test the hypothesis that individuals' lack of knowledge of the new law reduces their tenure security. Results point toward strong and positive effects of greater tenure security and transferability.

    Although many African countries have
    recently adopted highly innovative and pro-poor land laws,
    lack of implementation thwarts their potentially
    far-reaching impact on productivity, poverty reduction, and
    governance. The authors use a representative household
    survey from Ethiopia where, over a short period,
    certificates to more than 20 million plots were issued to
    describe the certification process, explore its incidence

    While there is a large, though
    inconclusive, literature on the impact of land titles in
    Africa, little attention has been devoted to the study of
    land conflict, despite evidence on increasing incidence of
    such conflicts. The authors use data from Uganda to explore
    who is affected by land conflicts, whether recent legal
    changes have helped to reduce their incidence, and to assess
    their impact on productivity. Results indicate that

    While scholars agree on the importance
    of land rental markets for structural transformation in
    rural areas, evidence on the extent and nature of their
    operation, including potential obstacles to their improved
    functioning, remains limited. This study uses
    household-level data from six countries to start filling
    this gap and derive substantive as well as methodological
    lessons. The paper finds that rental markets transfer land
