    While scholars agree on the importance
    of land rental markets for structural transformation in
    rural areas, evidence on the extent and nature of their
    operation, including potential obstacles to their improved
    functioning, remains limited. This study uses
    household-level data from six countries to start filling
    this gap and derive substantive as well as methodological
    lessons. The paper finds that rental markets transfer land

    This study exploits a natural experiment
    to investigate the impact of land reform on the fertility
    outcomes of households in rural Ethiopia. Public policies
    and customs created a situation where Ethiopian households
    could influence their usufruct rights to land via a
    demographic expansion of the family. The study evaluates the
    impact of the abolishment of these pronatal property rights
    on fertility outcomes. By matching aggregated census data

    This paper presents early evidence from
    the first large-scale randomized-controlled trial of a land
    formalization program. The study examines the links between
    land demarcation and investment in rural Benin in light of a
    model of agricultural production under insecure tenure. The
    demarcation process involved communities in the mapping and
    attribution of land rights; cornerstones marked parcel
    boundaries and offered lasting landmarks. Consistent with

    Growing research and policy interest
    focuses on the misallocation of output and factors of
    production in developing economies. This paper considers the
    possible misallocation of financial loans. Using plant-level
    data on the organized and unorganized sectors, the paper
    describes the temporal, geographic, and industry
    distributions of financial loans. The focus of the analysis
    is the hypothesis that land misallocation might be an

    Mauritania is a vast country covering
    over a million square kilometers, where a relatively small
    population of 3.5 million people lives on just one-fifth of
    the country’s total area. With extremely advanced
    desertification, the country is particularly vulnerable to
    the impact of climate change and other external shocks. The
    main sources of income in Mauritania are agriculture, which
    is either irrigated or rain-fed, and livestock. This is
