    This paper uses comprehensive and long time series monthly food price data and a panel dyadic regression framework to evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated policy responses on spatial market integration across a diverse set of food items in Nigeria. The empirical results reveal several important insights. First, we show that a significant slowdown in the speed of adjustment and price transmission occurred during the pandemic.

    Agriculture is one of the fundamental pillars of the 2022–2027 Bottom-up Economic Transformation Plan of the Government of Kenya for tackling complex domestic and global challenges. Kenya's food system is crucial for climate change mitigation and adaptation. Kenya has prioritized aspects of agriculture, food, and land use as critical sectors for reducing emissions towards achieving Vision 2030's transformation to a low-carbon, climate-resilient development pathway.

    Agricultural mechanization is the use of machinery, equipment, and implements—rather than human or animal power—to carry out agricultural practices. When the use of mechanization is sufficiently high, it can help improve the overall efficiency of food systems, reduce the costs of producing outputs and providing services, enhance economies of scale, and raise labor productivity and incomes (FAO and AUC 2018; Diao, Takeshima, and Zhang 2020).

    Feminist scholars and activists have drawn attention to the importance of
    women’s land rights, and studies focused on irrigation have explored the gendered
    relationships between land and water rights. Yet little of this work has focused
    on the relationship between land and water rights for domestic and productive
    purposesmore broadly.Within rural communities, women andmen have diô€€€erent
    rights to both land and water.We explore these interconnected relationships using
    community profiles, focus group discussions, and in-depth interviews from two

    This study contributes to the observed reduction of arable lands discourse by examining the shift in land use patterns as well as factors influencing farmers' shift from crop production to mining activities. To achieve this, we employed a combination of Geographic Information System (GIS) technology and Cragg's Double Hurdle Econometric Model as analytical tools. Our approach integrates an econometric model of land use with GIS simulations that predict the spatial pattern of land-use change.

    Zimbabwe

    Agriculture used to be at the center of
    Zimbabwe’s economy, accounting for about
    20% of GDP. But it has since declined to
    about 10%, since the introduction of the
    land reform bill. The government has been
    intensifying efforts to prioritize the sector
    until 2020. The mostly rural population
    depend on agriculture, which provides
    60-70% of the population with income.
    Yet smallholder farmers face significant
    challenges. Low and erratic rainfall,
    drought, low and declining soil fertility

    Agricultural land reforms are crucial to promote investments in sustainable land management and food production amidst accelerating urbanization and increasing population growth. However, notable gaps remain in the literature regarding how land reforms designed at the national level are implemented in localized contexts, especially as they interplay with customary tenure regimes. Adopting an institutional bricolage perspective, we explore interactions between local tenure arrangements and government land reforms and the resulting implications for food production in rural Mali.
