Reports & Research
Mai, 2015

The Philippines is basically an agricultural country with about 30 per cent of the total land area of the country cultivated by almost 5 million farmers. However farm area devoted to agriculture has been decreasing due to land conversion. The basic problem is that Filipino farmers do not have the ability to buy their own lands. The Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program was implemented to address this problem of landlessness thru redistribution of land.

Human security and land rights in Cambodia

Reports & Research
Décembre, 2014

The report of a project exploring human security and land rights in Cambodia. The project used a human security framework to address two questions: (1) What kind of insecurities do people in areas with land disputes have, and who is most insecure? (2) What provides people with security, and how does land policy relate to other sources of security over land? The study involved more than 400 participants in Kampong Chhnang, Ratanakiri, and Phnom Penh. The study shows that insecurity over land is about wider issues of poverty environment and livelihood insecurity.

The Impact of Property Rights on Households' Investment, Risk Coping, and Policy Preferences : Evidence from China

Août, 2014

Even though it is widely recognized that
giving farmers more secure land rights may increase
agricultural investment, scholars contend that, in the case
of China, such a policy might undermine the function of land
as a social safety net and, as a consequence, not be
sustainable or command broad support. Data from three
provinces, one of which had adopted a policy to increase
security of tenure in advance of the others, suggest that

relevance of the challenges that an extension of the land

Market and Nonmarket Transfers of Land in Ethiopia : Implications for Efficiency, Equity, and Nonfarm Development

Mai, 2014

The authors use data from Ethiopia to
empirically assess determinants of participation in land
rental markets, compare these to those of administrative
land reallocation, and make inferences on the likely impact
of households' expectations regarding future
redistribution. Results indicate that rental markets
outperform administrative reallocation in terms of
efficiency and poverty. Households who have part-time jobs

Land Sales and Rental Markets in Transition : Evidence from Rural Vietnam

Mai, 2014

The extent to which households should be
allowed to transfer their land rights in post-socialist
transition economies is of considerable policy interest. The
authors use data from Vietnam, a transition country that
allows rental and sales of land use rights, to identify
factors conducive to the development of land markets and to
assess the extent to which land transfers enhance productive
efficiency and transfer land to the poor. They find that

Land Rights and Economic Development : Evidence from Vietnam

Avril, 2014

The authors examine the impact of land
reform in Vietnam which gives households the power to
exchange, transfer, lease, inherit, and mortgage their
land-use rights. The authors expect this change to increase
the incentives as well as the ability to undertake long-term
investments on the part of households. Their
difference-in-differences estimation strategy takes
advantage of the variation across provinces in the issuance
