    The author describes a new type of negotiated land reform that relies on voluntary land transfers negotiated between buyers and sellers, with the government's role restricted to establishing the necessary framework for negotiation and making a land purchase grant available to eligible beneficiaries. This approach has emerged-following the end of the Cold War and broad macroeconomic adjustment--as many countries face a second generation of reforms to address deep-rooted structural problems and provide a basis for sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction.

    Unequal land distribution and the
    negative social and economic implications resulting from
    such polarization in Colombia have long been of concern to
    policymakers. A 1950 World Bank mission identified unequal
    land distribution as a key impediment to economic and social
    development in the country. Since then, a wide range of
    policies has been adopted to deal with this issue and its
    consequences. Numerous studies show that the success of

    Internal displacement in Colombia has
    become more prevalent and serious. Expulsion of land users
    to gain territorial control is increasingly a tactical
    element in the conflict. High land inequality makes it
    easier to uproot populations. Providing assistance to
    displaced populations does not reduce their propensity to
    return. Together with other measures, a land policy that
    increases tenure security for those at risk of displacement,

    Based on a large survey to compare the
    effectiveness of land markets and land reform in Colombia,
    the authors find that rental and sales markets were more
    effective in transferring land to poor but productive
    producers than was administrative land reform. The fact that
    land transactions were all of a short-term nature and that
    little land was transferred from very large to small land
    owners or the landless suggests that there may be scope for

    The growing use of Payments for
    Environmental Services (PES) for conservation has fostered a
    debate on its effectiveness, but the few efforts to date to
    assess the impact of PES programs have been hampered by lack
    of data, leading to very divergent results. This paper uses
    data from a PES mechanism implemented in Quindío, Colombia,
    to examine the impact of PES on land use change. Alone among
    all early PES initiatives, the Silvopastoral Project

    The effectiveness of conservation
    interventions such as Payments for Environmental Services
    (PES) is often evaluated, if it is evaluated at all, only at
    the completion of the intervention. Since gains achieved by
    the intervention may be lost after it ends, even apparently
    successful interventions may not result in long-term
    conservation benefits, a problem known as that of
    permanence. This paper uses a unique dataset to examine the
