    Sudán

    The population of Sudan reached 30.9 million people in the last population census (2008), and is
    projected to reach 39.7 people by 2016, growing at a 2.8% growth rate per annum. With this rate
    of increase the population could double up in in about 16 years.
    The urban population constituted about 29.8% of the total 2008 population, which indicates that
    Sudan is predominantly rural. This high rate of population increase, and the tendency towards
    population concentration in large urban centers, constitutes one of the biggest challenges facing

    Etiopía

    This paper provides evidence from one of the poorest countries of the world that the property rights matter for efficiency, investment, and growth. With all land state-owned, the threat of land redistribution never appears far off the agenda. Land rental and leasing have been made legal, but transfer rights remain restricted and the perception of continuing tenure insecurity remains quite strong. Using a unique panel data set, this study investigates whether transfer rights and tenure insecurity affect household investment decisions, focusing on trees and shrubs.

    While academics have largely shifted their focus from ‘women in development’ to addressing women and men as
    part of broader ‘gendered’ social relations, this shift is yet to be fully translated into development practice. This
    requires development practitioners to be sensitive to local contexts and to the various inequalities they contain
    with regards to land rights and land use (based on class, gender, age, migration status etc.).

    Lesotho

    This DPhil dissertation  explores the logic, methods, and outcomes of a U.S. government- sponsored land reform in Lesotho, Southern Africa. The reform was part of a $363 million grant from the Millennium Challenge Corporation to the Kingdom of Lesotho that funded a sweeping change. Instead of local chiefs administering and allocating land, the power shifted to bureaucrats and landholders, who received leasehold titles to their land.

    Development agencies are increasingly making decisions and evaluating success on the basis of an ever-growing supply of data. Some argue that the proliferation of data improves development outcomes for states and people targeted by agencies' interventions, as well as the accountability of those agencies. Others argue that problems of selection bias, a lack of longitudinal records, and misuse of data can ignore or even exacerbate the problems that development agencies seek to mitigate.

    Kenya

    There has been progress in terms of legislation of land ownership and women rights on the same subject in Kenya and a number of Non-Governmental Organizations and Civil Society Organizations are in the fore front promoting women land ownership. It is noted that women play an integral part in food production for their families however, land tenure system in the rural areas discriminates against women hence very few women own land.
