In Burma, where 70 percent of people earn a living through agriculture, securing land is often equivalent to securing a livelihood.

This paper explores the politics of ‘customary’ land tenure, land reform, and traditional leaders in Zambia. In Zambia, as elsewhere in Southern Africa, the government at the behest of donors has implemented market-based tenure reform legislation.
