    Ethiopia, Africa

    Because agriculture is the economic backbone of most countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, including Ethiopia, any meaningful sustainable development program in the continent must therefore be anchored in the sector. The concept for this study on agribusiness indicators was based on the vital role that agribusiness plays in agricultural development. The study focuses on agribusiness indicators (ABI) to identify and isolate the determining factors that lead private investors and other stakeholders to participate in agribusiness and to engage in discourse regarding its development.

    While the economic returns to using
    chemical fertilizer in Africa can be large, application
    rates are low. This study explores whether this is due to
    missing and imperfect markets. Results based on a panel
    survey of Ethiopian farmers suggest that while fertilizer
    markets are not altogether missing in rural Ethiopia, high
    transport costs, unfavorable climate, price risk, and
    illiteracy present formidable hurdles to farmer

    The authors use data from Ethiopia to
    empirically assess determinants of participation in land
    rental markets, compare these to those of administrative
    land reallocation, and make inferences on the likely impact
    of households' expectations regarding future
    redistribution. Results indicate that rental markets
    outperform administrative reallocation in terms of
    efficiency and poverty. Households who have part-time jobs

    The authors use a large data set from
    Ethiopia that differentiates tenure security and
    transferability to explore determinants of different types
    of land-related investment and its possible impact on
    productivity. While they find some support for endogeneity
    of investment in trees, this is not the case for terraces.
    Transfer rights are unambiguously investment-enhancing. The
    large productivity effect of terracing implies that, even

    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
