    Eritrea, Sub-Saharan Africa

    Describes the main features of the new Eritrean land law and its operative assumption that the legislation is meant to extend state control over land.The legal devices employed by the law are widely used in sub-Saharan Africa (and were largely inspired by colonial policies). The State of Eritrea frequently asserts that its recent independence gives it the opportunity to learn from other developing countries' mistakes and to avoid them.The basic patterns of the new land law, however, are common to the rest of Africa, notwithstanding the evident poor results.

    Malawi

    This paper contributes to the
    long-standing debate on the merits of decentralized
    beneficiary targeting in the administration of development
    programs, focusing on the large-scale Malawi Farm Input
    Subsidy Program. Nationally-representative household survey
    data are used to systematically analyze the decentralized
    targeting performance of the program during the 2009-2010

    The major role tropical forests play in
    biodiversity and climate change has led the world to search
    for effective ways to slow down deforestation. Community
    forest management (CFM) is an example of the broader concept
    of community-based natural resources management (CBNRM). As
    part of the decentralization policy in many countries,
    mainly in Africa and Asia, CFM was expected to promote: (i)
    a more effective stewardship of the resources by involving

    Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa

    Land reform can broadly be divided into
    land tenure reform-the establishment of secure and
    formalized property rights in land-and land
    redistribution-the transfer of land from large to small
    farmers. The paper is therefore divided into two chapters.
    The first chapter gives a short narrative of some of the key
    land tenure and land policy issues. While these issues
    remain politically sensitive, there is a solid consensus

    and Development Plan (PRDP). This second part of the study,
    undertaken during the second half of 2007 in the Lango and
    Acholi regions, builds on the first phase conducted in 2006
    in the Teso region. This second study has been designed to

    Ethiopia

    This report is about implementing
    low-cost rural land certification. Prior to 1975,
    Ethiopia's land tenure system was complex and
    semi-feudal. Tenure was highly insecure, arbitrary evictions
    were common, and many lands underutilized. High inequality
    of land ownership reduced productivity and investment,
    leading to political grievances and eventually the overthrow
    of the imperial regime in 1975. The Marxist government that

    Over the coming decades, land policy and
    administration, for urban as well as rural areas, will be
    critical for Ethiopia's development. The vast majority
    of people making up the Federal Democratic Republic of
    Ethiopia's (FDRE) predominantly agricultural economy
    live in rural areas. Finally, land policies and
    administration can contribute significantly to the
    objectives of promoting gender equality and protecting

    South Sudan, Sudan

    South Sudan is a new country of 10.5
    million people that has just emerged from conflict and still
    facing challenges with recovery and development. Although
    economic disparities, political exclusion and deprivation in
    the distribution of political and economic power between the
    northern and southern parts of then united Sudan were often
    tendered as the proximal causes of the conflict, at the
    center of the prolonged civil war was the struggle for
