    This paper reviews existing microeconomic empirical literature on gender differences in use, access, and adoption of non-land agricultural inputs in developing countries. This review focuses on four key areas: (1) technological resources, (2) natural resources, (3) human resources, and (4) social and political capital. In general, there has been more empirical research on inorganic fertilizer, seed varieties, extension services, and group membership than on tools and mechanization, life-cycle effects, and political participation.

    This guide on Access to rural land and land administration after violent conflicts has been prepared to assist land tenure and land administration specialists who are involved with the reconstruction of systems of land tenure and land administration in countries that are emerging from violent conflict. Providing secure access to land is particularly complex in such situations. Violent conflicts typically result in the displacement of much of the population. At the end of the conflict, people returning home may find that others occupy their property.

    Access to arable productive land in African has been in decline due to the pressure of growing population trends and worsening land degradation as a result of climate change. Recent high profile land purchases covering thousand of hectares of prime agricultural land have raised concerns over equitable land access. Major expansions in regional land markets have increased investor interest in land acquisitions. Perceptions of land availability and competitive land prices have driven demand for prime agriculture land.

    One of the striking features of transition from plan to market in CIS agriculture is the

    dramatic shift from the predominance of large corporate farms (kolkhozy and sovkhozy,

    generally referred to as agricultural enterprises) to individual or family agriculture based on a

    the new peasant farms that began to emerge after 1992, accounts for most of agricultural

    production and controls a large share of arable land. This is a dramatic change from the pre-

    Land use projects are especially exposed to the insecurities regarding the future of international climate change regulations.
