The price of empowerment: can land titling programmes be gender-inclusive?

Abstract

While many policymakers in sub-Saharan Africa are concerned with getting formal property rights into the hands of the poor, little is known about how to do so in an equitable, gender-inclusive manner. Through a randomized experiment, this research project offered households in Dar es Salaam conditional discounts to induce them to register women as land owners when purchasing a land title.
