    Ethiopia

    Land in Ethiopia is held by the state, who acts as a custodian for the Ethiopian people. Even though it is the state which controls land ownership, farmers and pastoralists are guaranteed a lifetime ‘holding’ right that provides rights to use the land, rent it out, donate, inherit and sharecrop it. Everything except sell and mortgage it. On paper and under existing formal laws, women have equal rights to men as far as use and control of and access to land is concerned.

    development. Findings show how the rising pressure on land results in commoditisation,

    L’originalité de la structure urbaine de Touba réside tout d’abord sur sa gestion dirigée par le Khalif général et son statut particulier d’un titre foncier qui s’adosse sur une forte démographie incontrôlée conjuguée à un fort étalement mal maitrisé.
