    Sri Lanka

    Economic development has brought about,
    the decline in contribution of the agricultural sector to
    the economy of Sri Lanka, and, consistent with this economic
    transformation, the structure of employment also changed.
    Thus, as labor migrates away from agriculture, the
    productivity, for those who remain in the land, needs to
    increase significantly. This report examines the constraints
    to promoting more rapid agricultural, and rural non-farm

    Colombia

    The purpose of this study is to assess
    agriculture's competitiveness in Colombia. During the
    past 12 years, Colombia's agricultural sector has
    performed poorly, resulting in the continuation of extensive
    rural poverty. Improving the sector's competitiveness
    is the only sure and lasting way to improve its growth
    performance and reduce poverty. Thus, the main objectives of
    this study are to assess: (a) the sector's current and

    There are many reasons to believe that
    Syrian agriculture has great potential for the future. The
    liberalisation of agriculture in Eastern Europe delivered
    rapid growth in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Countries
    such as Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bulgaria, Hungary,
    Kazachstan, Romania and Russia achieved labour productivity
    growth in constant US$ terms of over 7 percent between 1998
    and 2004. Syria has a global comparative advantage in fruit

    Although transfer of agricultural land
    ownership through land reform had positive impacts on
    productivity, investment, and political empowerment in many
    cases, institutional arrangements in West Bengal -- which
    made tenancy heritable and imposed a prohibition on
    subleasing -- imply that early land reform benefits may not
    be sustained and gains from this policy remain well below
    potential. Data from a listing of 96,000 households in 200

    Nicaragua

    This report centers on the problems
    stemming from land issues in Nicaragua. The report's
    main recommendations deal with four priority actions:
    institutional reform; adjustments to the legal framework;
    systematic regularization of land rights; and, firmly
    addressing previous land invasions, and preventing future
    invasions. The issue of land distribution, and ownership is
    especially critical in Nicaragua; indeed, the country

    Land policy, administration and
    management are areas of strong client demand for technical
    advice and operational support. This review sought to help
    the Bank better position itself to present coherent advice
    on policy, institutional arrangements and practice. The
    potential implications are a lowering of reputational risk
    to the Bank; greater efficiency in the process including
    joint data gathering; and building of greater momentum and

    Yemen

    The report, Land Tenure for Social and
    Economic Inclusion in Yemen: Issues and Opportunities was
    completed in December 2009. The report addresses the
    problems of land ownership in Yemen and the various social
    and economic problems associated with the system of land
    ownership. Property rights under Yemeni Law are expressed
    both in custom and statute, but both are informed by shari a
    (Islamic law), which provides the basic property categories

    Colombia

    Unequal land distribution and the
    negative social and economic implications resulting from
    such polarization in Colombia have long been of concern to
    policymakers. A 1950 World Bank mission identified unequal
    land distribution as a key impediment to economic and social
    development in the country. Since then, a wide range of
    policies has been adopted to deal with this issue and its
    consequences. Numerous studies show that the success of
