The report deals with land tenure issues in Lebanon and analyzes major problems facing sustainable agriculture in view of natural setting, prevailing practices and existing legislation. Lebanon consists mainly of rugged mountainous regions with slopping and steep lands. The population of Lebanon in 2007 was 4 million with 407,362 residing in Beirut, the administrative capital of Lebanon.

In view of its increasing importance,

impacts on source households, this study uses data from the

assesses the impact of past migration experience of Albanian
households on non-farm business ownership through

This sector report claims that in the
three years between 2002 and 2005 alone, almost 235,000
people have moved out of poverty in Albania. Strong economic
growth and large inflow of remittances are at the center of
this impressive achievement. However, low productivity of
predominantly small family farms has put a drag on rural
growth prospects. Moreover, Ndihma Ekonomike (NE) program,
the means-tested income support program is small in scale,

The contribution of return migrants to
economic development in source countries can be significant.
Overseas savings of returnees may lead to improvements in
household welfare and provide liquidity for investments in
the face of credit market failures. Labor market experience
and skills acquired abroad may also lead migrants to find
occupations higher in the skill and remuneration spectrum
upon return. This study uses the 2005 Albanian Living

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.
