    Le Cadre d’analyse de la gouvernance foncière (CAGF) est un outil de diagnostic permettant d’évaluer le cadre juridique, les politiques et les pratiques en matière de gestion foncière et d’utilisation des terres.

    Ce cadre conceptuel a été élaboré par la Banque mondiale depuis 2008 dans le cadre d’un partenariat avec la FAO, ONU- Habitat, le FIDA, l’IFPRI, l’Union africaine et des agences de développement bilatérales, comme outil de diagnostic permettant d’évaluer le statut de la gouvernance foncière d’un pays.

    Conflict, forced displacement and health in Sri Lanka: a review of the research landscape
    Peer-reviewed publication
    November, 2014
    Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka has recently emerged from nearly three decades of protracted conflict, which came to an end five years ago in 2009. A number of researchers have explored the devastating effect the conflict has had on public health, and its impact on Sri Lanka’s health system - hailed as a success story in the South Asian region. Remarkably, no attempt has been made to synthesize the findings of such studies in order to build an evidence-informed research platform. This review aims to map the ‘research landscape’ on the impact of conflict on health in Sri Lanka.

    Discrimination against women and girls carries a high development cost. This
    third edition of the SIGI captures and measures gender-based discrimination in social
    institutions
    − social norms, practices and laws
    − across 160 countries. It exposes the
    ongoing prevalence of discrimination in all regions of the world and across all cultures
    irrespective of their levels of income or development. The 2014 edition of the SIGI
    testifies to the global nature of gender inequality but provides evidence that national

    This paper considers two land tenure modes. leasehold and freehold. and models housing maintenance incentives under land tenure security in Japan. Compared with freeholders, leaseholders are equally likely to remain in the premises, but spend less on home maintenance, because leaseholders are not full residual claimants, even under land tenure security. The empirical results show that maintenance expenditures of leaseholders are about 30% lower than those of freeholders in the Japanese residential land market.

    We provide an integrated treatment of the theoretical literature on urban land use inspired by the monocentric model, including extensions that deal with multiple endogenous business centres, various dimensions of heterogeneity, and durable housing. After presenting the theory and distilling its key empirical implications, we critically review the empirical literature on differences in prices and development across urban locations, patterns of location choices of heterogeneous households in cities, sprawl and residential decentralization, and employment decentralization.

    Climate change, coupled with biofuels development and other factors may well be changing US land usage patterns. We use a spatial econometric approach to estimate the drivers of US land use transitions in recent years. We consider transitions between six major land uses: agricultural land, forest, grassland, water, urban, and other uses. To examine drivers, we use a two-step linearized, spatial, multinomial logit model and estimate land use transition probabilities.

    This study examines the effects of land tenure systems on resource-use productivity and efficiency in the Upper East region of Ghana with data drawn from the Ghana Agricultural Production Survey. A stochastic frontier model is employed to analyse resource-use productivity and efficiency of the rice farms. The study establishes that rice farms under the various land tenure systems are technically inefficient. Technical efficiency for the pooled sample was 61.80%.

    We examine the role of spatial interactions in conservation easements placed on prairie pothole habitat in western Canada. One of the goals of the conservation easement program we study is to protect contiguous habitat. We identify endogenous spatial interactions among conservation easements and government protected land, independent of spatially correlated landscape features and local economic shocks that influence easement enrollment. We present evidence that easements increase the likelihood of subsequent easements on neighboring land.
