Although early attempts at land titling
in Africa were often unsuccessful, the need to secure rights
in view of increased demand for land, options for
registration of a continuum of individual or communal rights
under new laws, and the scope for reducing costs by
combining information technology with participatory methods
have led to renewed interest. This paper uses a
difference-in-difference approach to assess economic impacts
of a low-cost registration program in Ethiopia that, over 5
years, covered some 20 million parcels. Despite policy
constraints, the program increased tenure security,
land-related investment, and rental market participation and
yielded benefits significantly above the cost of implementation.
