This is a protocol for a systematic review which has since been published
The objectives of the review are:
- to understand impacts of interventions to strengthen land property
rights on agricultural and livelihood outcomes in rural areas of low and
middle income countries;
- to assess whether these effects are different for men and women, and
under what circumstances;
- to assess specific mechanisms that enable or limit productivity
improvement (barriers and facilitators).
The review will examine the impact of two types of land rights
1. Conversion of communal or non-demarcated land to free-hold and
titling of such land.
2. Statutory recognition and codification of customary or communal land
rights, and certification of these rights.
