    Already during the Land Reform, land properties of several land parcels were formed in the rural areas. Another factor that benefits to the fragmentation of farm properties is development of land market because buying or renting land for farm size building, it is not always possible to find adjacent land plot. Consequently, the land fragmentation not only makes land management difficult, but also increases the transport costs. With this rural land tenure system, competitive and efficient agricultural production cannot be discussed, so a large part of rural areas remains untreated.

    Using the case of past and ongoing land tenure reforms in Mozambique, this paper aims at assessing the determinants of tenure security for households and the implications of such tenure security on their observed behavior in undertaking long-term land-related investments. An attempt is made to distinguish the source of risk of tenure insecurity as: (i) effective risk (mainly dependent on past experiences of households); and (ii) potential risk (i.e., long-term perception of tenure security).

    Presentamos a los lectores el "Atlas sobre la tenencia de la tierra en el Ecuador", el cual constituye una colección de mapas que dan cuenta de la tenencia de la tierra en Ecuador: quienes tienen acceso a la tierra, en que magnitud, cuáles son los tipos de cultivos, y en qué cantones y provincias se encuentran.

    Estos mapas se han cosntruido en base al procesamiento de los datos que presentya el III Censo Nacional Agropecuario del año 2000, la última base de información oficial referida al tema que estudiamos (el próximo censo se realizaría probablemente en el año 2015).
