    Ethiopia

    Although many African countries have
    recently adopted highly innovative and pro-poor land laws,
    lack of implementation thwarts their potentially
    far-reaching impact on productivity, poverty reduction, and
    governance. The authors use a representative household
    survey from Ethiopia where, over a short period,
    certificates to more than 20 million plots were issued to
    describe the certification process, explore its incidence

    The 2003 land law defines that the Land
    Tenure Certificate (LTCs) carries both the wife's and
    husband's names. Theoretically, the requirement of both
    the wife's and husband's names on the LTCs aims at
    enabling the wife to participate more actively in household
    economic production for poverty reduction, and to protect
    the rights of the woman in the event of civil disputes over
    the land that has been provided with a LTCs. A field-based

    Ethiopia

    Stakeholders' perceptions of
    opportunities and constraints to sustainable land management
    in Ethiopia was assessed through interviews and a review of
    secondary data. Stakeholders included farmers as well as
    representatives of development agencies, agricultural
    organizations, donors, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs),
    and agricultural research systems. Stakeholders generally
    perceive that the numerous, well-intentioned but piecemeal

    India

    In India, land continues to be of
    enormous economic, social, and symbolic relevance. The main
    purpose of this report is to review new empirical evidence
    on land administration and land policy, as well as the
    possible interaction between the two, to derive policy
    conclusions. The empirical basis for the discussion of land
    administration is provided by a review of land records,
    survey and settlement, and land registration in 14 states.

    This report is a synthesis of information gleaned from four case studies of World Bank-financed land programs in Azerbaijan, Bolivia, Ghana, and the Lao People's Democratic Republic. The case studies were designed to both broaden and deepen our understanding of how land policies affect women and men, with an aim to applying this knowledge in very practical ways to World Ban-supported land projects.

    Thailand

    In the 1980s the Thai government tried to legalize squatters by issuing special titles that restricted the sale and rental of the land. Using data from 2,874 farming households collected in 1997, the author finds that in places where these government titles where issued, leased plots are more likely to be titled than those that are self-cultivated. For these areas, he uses a model to estimate a 6 percent risk premium in the rental rate for untitled plots.

    Ethiopia

    This report is about implementing
    low-cost rural land certification. Prior to 1975,
    Ethiopia's land tenure system was complex and
    semi-feudal. Tenure was highly insecure, arbitrary evictions
    were common, and many lands underutilized. High inequality
    of land ownership reduced productivity and investment,
    leading to political grievances and eventually the overthrow
    of the imperial regime in 1975. The Marxist government that

    China

    This report is about integrated land
    policy reform in context of rapid urbanization in China.
    Over the past thirty years, China has undergone a profound
    economic and social transformation as it moves towards a
    market-oriented economy. Land issues are implicated in this
    ongoing transformation in numerous ways. The allocation and
    security of land rights are key factors in China's
    quest for economic growth and social stability. Land use

    Ethiopia

    Over the coming decades, land policy and
    administration, for urban as well as rural areas, will be
    critical for Ethiopia's development. The vast majority
    of people making up the Federal Democratic Republic of
    Ethiopia's (FDRE) predominantly agricultural economy
    live in rural areas. Finally, land policies and
    administration can contribute significantly to the
    objectives of promoting gender equality and protecting

    Albania

    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
    lay the foundation for greater rural productivity. This
    paper uses farm-level data from the 2005 Albania Living
    Standards Measurement Survey to explore this quantitatively.
