    This study explores the impact of changes in land tenure institutions on women’s land rights and the efficiency of tree resource management in western Ghana, where cocoa is the dominant crop. Although communal land tenure aims to provide equitable access to land for all households, women’s land rights in the region are weaker than those of men, as is often the case under customary land tenure systems (Lastarria-Cornhiel 1997).

    This paper presents early evidence from
    the first large-scale randomized-controlled trial of a land
    formalization program. The study examines the links between
    land demarcation and investment in rural Benin in light of a
    model of agricultural production under insecure tenure. The
    demarcation process involved communities in the mapping and
    attribution of land rights; cornerstones marked parcel
    boundaries and offered lasting landmarks. Consistent with
