    Ethiopia

    This paper provides evidence from one of
    the poorest countries of the world that the property rights
    matter for efficiency, investment, and growth. With all land
    state-owned, the threat of land redistribution never appears
    far off the agenda. Land rental and leasing have been made
    legal, but transfer rights remain restricted and the
    perception of continuing tenure insecurity remains quite
    strong. Using a unique panel data set, this study

    Nigeria

    The scope and urgency of the threats to
    Nigeria's rural land are no secret. In 2005, a working
    group dedicated to formulating a national agricultural land
    policy began the process with a comprehensive articulation
    of the challenges facing Nigeria's agricultural land.

    Global

    The 2007-2008 upsurge in agricultural
    commodity prices gave rise to widespread concern about
    investors causing a "global land rush". Large land
    deals can provide opportunities for better access to
    capital, transfer of technology, and advances in
    productivity and employment generation. But they carry risks
    of dispossession and loss of livelihoods, corruption,
    deterioration in local food security, environmental damage,
