    Europe

    Buying, selling and mortgaging farmland
    are still rare in Eastern and Central Europe. Not
    surprisingly, given the level of risk in many of these
    countries, short-term transactions, especially leasing, are
    more common. These short-term transactions do almost as well
    as land sales in allocating resources. Making them more
    secure by improving simple registration and enforcement
    systems and increasing public access to information on what

    IFC has built up a hefty portfolio of
    debt and equity investments in leasing companies in emerging
    markets. Based on IFC's experience, the authors argue
    that leasing is an effective instrument for financing small
    firms' investments in equipment --especially in
    countries with weak collateral laws or mostly new businesses
    that lack historical financial statements.

    By studying the approach of IFC leasing
    technical assistance projects implemented to date, the
    authors hope to provide a useful reference. This manual
    highlights which elements to look for locally, why
    experiences may be different between countries, and what
    (based on our collective experience) may be appropriate
    courses of action. Examining the approach of current and
    past projects, this manual also aims to identify the key

    Uganda

    Mixed evidence on the impact of formal title in much of Africa is often used to question the relevance of dealing with land policy issues in this continent. The authors use data from Uganda to assess the impact of a disaggregated set of rights on investment, productivity, and land values, and to test the hypothesis that individuals' lack of knowledge of the new law reduces their tenure security. Results point toward strong and positive effects of greater tenure security and transferability.

    Moldova

    The objective of this policy note on
    land is to assist the Government of Moldova in improving the
    effectiveness of land management in agriculture, with a view
    to enhancing the sector's contribution to
    Moldova's economic growth and poverty reduction
    objectives. The note reviews the progress that has been
    made to date on land reform in Moldova, and provides
    rigorous economic analysis of the impacts of the reforms and

    As the world is urbanizing, many cities
    are grappling with a population that is growing rapidly,
    thereby increasing demand for land and housing. This
    pressure on land and housing markets often is exacerbated by
    inappropriate or inadequate policies. The result is a supply
    of well-located land and housing that falls well short of
    demand and the proliferation of poorly serviced informal
    settlements, many of which are located far from jobs, city

    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
