    The main objectives of the cooperative societies of the 1960’s were the promotion, in accordance with cooperative principles and the requirements of social justice, of better living, better business and better methods of production by reducing the cost of credit, etc. Most of the societies then were farmers' cooperatives whose membership were composed of land owners, provincial and district Governors businessmen, etc. The leadership was also controlled by the same people.

    For over a decade, the globalisation of environmental, economic and social issues has induced rapid modification in agriculture and land. These changes raise the question of future extensive livestock systems in regards to the worldwide challenge to double livestock production by 2050 in ways which are safe for the environment. In order to better understand and follow modification processes, a comparative study of livestock systems and land dynamics has been carried out on seven case studies on three continents through the use of a common grid.

    Secure tenure rights and control over land for women and men farmers are key to boosting smallholder productivity, rural development and food security. However, in many parts of the world, men and women have inadequate access to secure property rights over land. Women are particularly disadvantaged: even though they constitute on average 43 percent of the agricultural labour force in developing countries, women’s ownership of agricultural land remains significantly lower than that of men.

    This background paper intends to highlight key issues surrounding the impact of HIV/AIDS on land, particularly at the rural household level in Southern and Eastern Africa. It also serves as an introduction to three country reports commissioned by the Sub-Regional Office for Southern and Eastern Africa of the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) on the impact of the epidemic on land issues. These studies are focused on Kenya, Lesotho and South Africa.

    Although early attempts at land titling
    in Africa were often unsuccessful, the need to secure rights
    in view of increased demand for land, options for
    registration of a continuum of individual or communal rights
    under new laws, and the scope for reducing costs by
    combining information technology with participatory methods
    have led to renewed interest. This paper uses a
    difference-in-difference approach to assess economic impacts

    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

    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

    This study aims to examine current land access and youth livelihood opportunities in Southern Ethiopia. We used survey data from the relatively land abundant districts of Oromia Region and from the land scarce districts of Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples' (SNNP) Region. Although access to agricultural land is a constitutional right for rural residents of Ethiopia, we found that youth in the rural south have limited potential to obtain agricultural land that can be a basis for viable livelihood. The law prohibits the purchase and sale of land in Ethiopia.
