    Africa

    This paper sheds light on how to harvest

    China to examine the dynamics of land transactions, machine
    investments, and the demand for machine services. Recently,

    This study identifies several factors
    that inhibit efficiency improvements in the farming sector,
    both in themselves and through the dynamics of their mutual
    interaction. The study observes that incentives faced in the
    labor market have important implications for the land
    structure and, and in many ways, are at the heart of the
    problem of low labor productivity in agriculture. The study

    political conflict and, at the same time, even though land
    conflict is often linked with the ethnic conflict in Sri
    Lanka, a large number of land conflicts in the North and
    East can be resolved prior to a full and national political
    solution to the ethnic situation. This report analyzes
