The reform was part of a $363 million grant from the Millennium Challenge Corporation to the Kingdom of Lesotho that funded a sweeping change.

    How Do Differences in Land Ownership Types in China Affect Land Development? A Case from Beijing
    Peer-reviewed publication

Livestock are their most important possessions – trade items bartered for food and other essentials; high-value assets used as collateral; the source of daily dairy protein.
