    Turkey

    In Turkey, to adapt EU's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the Agricultural Reform Implementation Project (ARIP) has been carried out. However, due to inadequate spatial data infrastructure, the effectiveness of the projects within the ARIP has been considerably weak. In this study, some investigations were held within the Directorate of Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (MARA) in Trabzon Province. In the light of the investigations and legislative-technical works on the application of the CAP in EU as well, basic necessities were determined.

During the 1950s and 1960s, FAO provided technical assistance to the development of land consolidation in member countries in Europe such as Turkey, Greece, Spain and Cyprus, but also in the Near East and Asia (Meliczek, 1973).

    This brief explores the reform of land tenure institutions which re-emerged in the 1990s, and asks if these reforms are any more gender sensitive than those of the past?The paper highlights that a focus of the recent reforms has been on land titling, designed to promote security of tenure and stimulate land markets.

    Turkey, Europe

    Ownership of agricultural land is very fragmented in Turkey, as is the case in countries within central Europe. This prevents agricultural efficiency from reaching desired levels. Land consolidation involves redistributing land ownership so that individual farmers own fewer, larger, more compact and more contiguous land parcels. In Turkey, generally voluntary land consolidation projects are performed, while some financial limitations and political conditions prevent land consolidation reach to its desired level.
