Este proceso va acompañado a menudo de niveles elevados de hambre y pobreza, lo que conduce a muchos residentes urbanos a ocuparse en actividades agrícolas para ayudar a cubrir sus necesidades alimentarias. Los responsables de las políticas deben admitir esta realidad y aprovechar de forma activa las oportunidades que ofrece la agricultura urbana.

We analyze the impact of land fragmentation on production diversification in rural Albania. Albania represents a particularly interesting case for studying land fragmentation as the fragmentation is a direct outcome of land reforms. The results indicate that land fragmentation is an important driver of production diversification of farm households in Albania. We find that land fragmentation stimulates significantly more diversification for subsistence farm households than for market-oriented households.

Albania's radical farmland
distribution is credited with averting an economic crisis
and social unrest during the transition. But many believe it
led to a holding structure too fragmented to be efficient,
and that public efforts to consolidate plots are needed to

paper uses farm-level data from the 2005 Albania Living
Standards Measurement Survey to explore this quantitatively.

We make use of data from the 2005 Albania Living Standard Measurement Survey to investigate the factorsaffecting household agriculture efficiency and land market development. To assess the functioning of land rentalmarkets and explore efficiency- and equity impacts of land rental, we use a model of producers who differ inendowments and skills and who face imperfect labor markets and transaction costs. The empirical evidence, of astochastic frontier estimate, shows that productivity is low and most farms are inefficiently utilized.
