    Vietnam

    In the wake of reforms to establish a free market in land-use rights, Vietnam is experiencing a pronounced rise in rural landlessness. To some observers this is a harmless by-product of a more efficient economy, while to others it signals the return of the pre-socialist class-structure, with the rural landless at the bottom of the economic ladder. The authors' theoretical model suggests that removing restrictions on land markets will increase landlessness among the poor, but that there will be both gainers and losers, with uncertain impacts on aggregate poverty.

    Eswatini

    The specific objective of this policy
    note is to derive insights that can contribute to rapid and
    sustainable integration of small-scale farmers into the
    livestock and horticulture value chains in Swaziland. It
    seeks to do this by identifying constraints that may be
    contributing to poor performance in the two value chains,
    evaluating technological options that could improve
    productivity, and identifying priority areas for future

    The purpose of this policy note is to
    contribute to an understanding of the factors that combine
    to constrain the development of smallholder agriculture in
    Swaziland. It seeks to shed light on why, despite being
    well-endowed in land and water resources, and despite having
    a climate that is generally favorable for the production of
    crops and livestock, Swaziland is obliged to import
    substantial amounts of food to feed the population. Also,

    Vietnam

    The decollectivization of agriculture in
    Vietnam was a crucial step in the country's transition
    to a market economy. But the assignment of land use rights
    had to be decentralized, and local cadres ostensibly had the
    power to corrupt this process. The authors assess the
    realized land allocation against explicit counterfactuals,
    including the simulated allocation implied by a competitive
    market-based privatization. The authors find that 95-99

    Uganda

    This is the second part of land studies
    on Northern Uganda designed to inform the Peace, Recovery
    and Development Plan (PRDP). This second part of the study,
    undertaken during the second half of 2007 in the Lango and
    Acholi regions, builds on the first phase conducted in 2006
    in the Teso region. This second study has been designed to
    present a more quantitative analysis of trends on disputes
    and claims on land before displacement, during displacement

    Ethiopia

    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

    This paper is a post-conference summary
    of the International Conference on Land Policy Reform that
    took place in Jarkarta from July 25-27, 2000. The paper
    concerns best practice in land administration systems. While
    the paper is focussed on world's best practice, it does
    so in the context of developing and emerging industrial
    countries such as Indonesia which have diverse land tenure
    relationships ranging from areas in cities with active land

    Vietnam

    The authors examine the impact of land
    reform in Vietnam which gives households the power to
    exchange, transfer, lease, inherit, and mortgage their
    land-use rights. The authors expect this change to increase
    the incentives as well as the ability to undertake long-term
    investments on the part of households. Their
    difference-in-differences estimation strategy takes
    advantage of the variation across provinces in the issuance

    Vietnam

    While liberalizing key factor markets is
    a crucial step in the transition from a socialist
    control-economy to a market economy, the process can be
    stalled by imperfect information, high transaction costs,
    and covert resistance from entrenched interests. The authors
    study land-market adjustment in the wake of Vietnam's
    reforms aiming to establish a free market in land-use rights
    following de-collectivization. Inefficiencies in the initial
