    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

    Albania's radical farmland
    distribution is credited with averting an economic crisis
    and social unrest during the transition. But many believe it
    led to a holding structure too fragmented to be efficient,
    and that public efforts to consolidate plots are needed to
    lay the foundation for greater rural productivity. This
    paper uses farm-level data from the 2005 Albania Living
    Standards Measurement Survey to explore this quantitatively.

    The policy reforms called for in the
    transition from a socialist command economy to a developing
    market economy bring both opportunities and risks to a
    country's citizens. In poor economies, the initial
    focus of reform efforts is naturally the rural sector, which
    is where one finds the bulk of the population and almost all
    the poor. Economic development will typically entail moving
    many rural households out of farming into more remunerative

    This book examines issues at the
    forefront of the debate on land law reform, pays particular
    attention to how reform options affect the poor and
    disadvantaged, and recommends strategies for alleviating
    poverty more effectively through land law reform. It reviews
    the role of the World Bank in land law reform, examining
    issues of process as well as substance. It also identifies
    key challenges and directions, and stresses the need to

    To implement the vision of fostering
    economic development, social equity, and a transparent and
    effective government, the Government of Liberia has outlined
    key transitions that need to be accomplished. These include
    the development of infrastructure (roads, electricity),
    schools, job creation and transition from war, civil
    conflict and social polarization to a well functioning
    society in which economic opportunities are fostered and

    This note recounts that by the early
    2000s, the Government of Mexico and the Secretariat of
    Agrarian Reform, in particular, had come to see investment
    in "the more dynamic young segment of the population
    endowed with more human capital" as the key to
    revitalizing the moribund rural economy of the
    country's social sector. Approaching this objective
    programmatically would entail establishing a land fund from

    On Boxing Day morning, 2004, a 9.3
    magnitude earthquake struck the Indian Ocean. The quake
    unleashed a blast of energy and created a tsunami three
    stories high. The disaster claimed more than 228,000 lives,
    affected 2.5 million others and caused close to US $11.4
    billion of damage in 14 countries. By far the highest price
    was paid by Aceh, where more people died than in all the
    other countries combined. In Banda Aceh, the capital of the

    a review of relevant social-science literature. The
    extension survey (TLSLSx) revisited a nationally
    representative subsample of the TLSLS2 between April and
    October 2008. The respondent for the justice module was

    Land markets that allow access to
    land-and to buildings-through secure property rights, at
    transparent prices, and with efficient permitting processes
    and land tax systems are essential to a good business
    environment. Creating such markets, however, can be a long,
    complex, politically charged process, especially where most
    land is untitled and where there are conflicting claims. But
    experience points to practical interim or step solutions
