    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

    Although early attempts at land titling
    in Africa were often unsuccessful, the need to secure rights

    combining information technology with participatory methods

    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

    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
