Land, Land Policy and Smallholder Agriculture in Ethiopia.

Abstract

Land and land tenure is a hot policy issue in Ethiopia. Three key issues are raised - farm size and fragmentation and the question of what is a 'viable' farm unit; tenure security and whether lack of land registration/certification or titling undermines investment in productivity improvements; and finally the issue land markets and whether imperfectly functioning markets constrain opportunities for land consolidation, investment and agricultural growth.
