Benin introduced new instruments to register customary land rights in the 2013 Land and Domain Law, which was updated in 2017.

The baseline survey was completed in 2018 and includes 2,968 households in 53 villages in the Borgou.

We use community and household data with plot-level information to explore the determinants of different forms of land conflicts and the conflicts’ impact on agricultural productivity in Uganda. Tracing rural-rural migration patterns, we find that communities that receive/host more immigrants (and thus have many coexisting tribes) tend to have more land conflicts than those sending migrants out.

Successful adoption of natural resource management technologies requires that important fundamentals of property rights be established.
