Book Description

September 20, 2006 0821364685 978-0821364680 1
'Land Law Reform' examines the wide-spread efforts to reform land law in developing countries and countries in transition, drawing in particular upon the experience of the World Bank and the Rural Development Institute. The book considers the role of land law reform in the development process and analyzes how the World Bank has sought to support these legal changes in client countries. It reviews the experience with reform of laws affecting land access and rights in achieving gender equity, identifies opportunities for reinforcing environmentally sustainable development through land law reform, and examines from both growth and poverty alleviation perspectives the effectiveness of reforms to formalize property rights and liberalize land markets. The concluding chapter recommends some basic priorities for land law reforms.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good introductory review of global land tenure. May 18, 2011
This book is an interesting review of global land tenure issues, covering a wide range of case studies thematically (forests, gender, etc.). I found it very helpful both because of the breadth of the case studies used and because of the fact that it was extremely well-documented, allowing me to perform further research where needed. Its breadth also kept me looking for new issues and problems that might arise in my community when I was living in Africa and researching these issues. Very useful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreadable! October 31, 2010
By Chris
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The authors of this book would have failed any college writing course. It is a string of bibliographical self-references to other World Bank publications. Don't waste your money.
