    Turkmenistan

    Turkmenistan's unique approach to
    land reform and farm restructuring has produced a
    significant shift to individual or household-based farming,
    with more than three-quarters of the arable land leased to
    individual households or small groups. Most leaseholders
    consider this land to be rightfully theirs, and they expect
    to keep it in the future, either as private owners, or
    through extension of their leasehold. However, individual

    Vietnam

    In the wake of reforms to establish a free market in land-use rights, Vietnam is experiencing a pronounced rise in rural landlessness. To some observers this is a harmless by-product of a more efficient economy, while to others it signals the return of the pre-socialist class-structure, with the rural landless at the bottom of the economic ladder. 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.

    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

    Africa

    This paper sheds light on how to harvest
    the "youth dividend" in Sub-Saharan Africa by
    creating jobs in agriculture. The agriculture that attracts
    the youth will have to be profitable, competitive, and
    dynamic. These are the same characteristics needed for
    agriculture to deliver growth, to improve food security, and
    to preserve a fragile natural environment. With higher
    priority accorded to implementation of well-designed public

Agricultural development in Mozambique has been part of the government agenda because it is crucial to reducing poverty within rural zones.

    This paper uses farm panel data from
    China to examine the dynamics of land transactions, machine
    investments, and the demand for machine services. Recently,
    China's agriculture has experienced a large expansion
    of machine rentals and machine services provided by
    specialized agents, which has contributed to mechanization
    of agricultural production. The empirical results show that
    an increase in nonagricultural wage rates leads to expansion

    Uganda

    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.
