    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

    Poverty, environment, social
    development, and gender are important cross-cutting themes
    of the World Bank and government investment programs,
    especially within the Sustainable Development Network (SDN).
    For developing sectoral strategies and programs, economic,
    environment and social assessments are undertaken, however,
    these are usually done separately, and most often gender
    issues are not included. This is a missed opportunity,

    This paper uses Ethiopian data to
    explore credit rationing in semi-formal credit markets and
    its effects on farmers' resource allocation and crop
    productivity. Credit rationing -- both voluntarily and
    involuntarily -- is found to be widespread in the sampled
    rural villages, largely because of risk-related factors.
    Political and social networks emerge as key determinants of
    access to credit among smallholder, peasant farmers.

    Although early attempts at land titling
    in Africa were often unsuccessful, the need to secure rights
    in view of increased demand for land, options for
    registration of a continuum of individual or communal rights
    under new laws, and the scope for reducing costs by
    combining information technology with participatory methods
    have led to renewed interest. This paper uses a
    difference-in-difference approach to assess economic impacts

    Although many African countries have
    recently adopted highly innovative and pro-poor land laws,
    lack of implementation thwarts their potentially
    far-reaching impact on productivity, poverty reduction, and
    governance. The authors use a representative household
    survey from Ethiopia where, over a short period,
    certificates to more than 20 million plots were issued to
    describe the certification process, explore its incidence

    Ethiopia

    Stakeholders' perceptions of
    opportunities and constraints to sustainable land management
    in Ethiopia was assessed through interviews and a review of
    secondary data. Stakeholders included farmers as well as
    representatives of development agencies, agricultural
    organizations, donors, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs),
    and agricultural research systems. Stakeholders generally
    perceive that the numerous, well-intentioned but piecemeal

    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

    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
