    Namibia

    Land tenure in Namibia is regulated by a variety of Acts, some of which date back to as far as 1937, and some of which are

    yet to be approved by Cabinet. This variety of Acts makes it difficult to evaluate the performance of land administration as a

    differentiation in the types of costs

    incurred in the process, as well as various

    levels of cost recovery. In addition, the

    degree to which delays in the operational

    registration processes influence the total

    As countries increasingly strive to transform their economies from agriculture‐based into a diversified one, land rental will become of greater importance. It will thus be critical to complement research on the efficiency of specific land rental arrangements such as sharecropping with an inquiry into the broader productivity impacts of the land rental market. Plot‐level data for a matched landlord–tenant sample in an environment where sharecropping dominates allow us to explore both issues.
