    This paper analyzes the effects of land
    market restrictions on the rural labor market outcomes for
    women. The existing literature emphasizes two mechanisms
    through which land restrictions can affect the economic
    outcomes: the collateral value of land, and (in) security of
    property rights. Analysis of this paper focuses on an
    alternative mechanism where land restrictions increase costs
    of migration out of villages. The testable prediction of

    Latin America and the Caribbean

    In 2013 the World Bank set itself two
    ambitious goals: to end extreme poverty within a generation
    and to boost the prosperity of the bottom 40 percent of the
    population worldwide. In Latin America, the significance of
    both goals cannot be overstated. Indigenous people account
    for about 8 percent of the population, but represent 14
    percent of the poor and over 17 percent of all Latin
    Americans living on less than United States (U.S.) $2.50 a

    governments to manage the process. Analyses presented in
    this report are particularly timely as Malawi is planning

    To explain persistent gender gaps in
    market outcomes, a lab experimental literature explores
    whether women and men have innate differences in ability (or
    attitudes or preferences), and a separate field-based
    literature studies discrimination against women in market
    settings. This paper posits that even if women have
    comparable innate ability, their relative performance may
    suffer in the market if the task requires them to interact

    Three of sub-Saharan Africa’s central
    economic realities motivate this study. First, agriculture
    is the most important sector in most African economies, on
    average accounting for nearly one-fourth of GDP. Second, the
    private sector is increasingly active in transforming
    African agriculture and economies. By 2030, agriculture and
    agribusiness are anticipated to become a US$ 1 trillion
    industry in Africa, delivering more jobs, income, and

    Honduras is Central America’s
    second-largest country with a population of more than 8
    million and a land area of about 112,000 square kilometers.
    The 20th century witnessed a profound economic
    transformation and modernization in Honduras. Honduras’
    persistent poverty is the result of long-term low per capita
    growth and high inequality, perpetuated by the country’s
    high vulnerability to shocks. First, over the past 40 years

    The authors investigate determinants of
    individual migration decisions in Vietnam, a country with
    increasingly high levels of geographical labor mobility.
    Using data from the Vietnam Household Living Standards
    Survey (VHLSS) of 2012, the authors find that probability of
    migration is strongly associated with individual, household
    and community-level characteristics. The probability of
    migration is higher for young people and those with
