Impacts of land certification on tenure security, investment, and land market participation: evidence from Ethiopia

Peer Reviewed

While early attempts at land titling in Africa were often unsuccessful, factors such as new legislation, low-cost methods, and increasing demand for land have generated renewed interest.

A four-period panel allows use of a pipeline and
approach to assess impacts of land registration in
Ethiopia. We find that the program increased tenure security,
land-related investment, and rental market participation and
yielded benefits significantly above the cost of implementation.
