Esta guía está acompañada por otra guía que se centra en un aspecto distinto del registro de derechos de tenencia: la creación de un sistema nuevo para registrar los derechos de tenencia por primera vez (Mejorar la manera de registrar los derechos de tenencia).

Peer-reviewed publication
December, 2018
Benin
Sub-Saharan Africa

This paper studies the impact of land tenure on household agricultural productivity in Benin. Compared to households without land ownership or right to land (squatters), results show that land certificate ownership increases by 0.238 the likelihood of investing in agricultural equipment, whereas customary law ownership increases this likelihood by 0.374. The study suggests that public authorities recognise customary rights and reinforce legal land institutions.

From the outset, the development of agriculture has been strongly associated with women’s endeavour. In fact, women’s contribution to agriculture goes back to the origins of farming and the domestication of animals when the first human settlements were established more than 6 000 years ago. Over the years, the division of responsibilities and labour within households and communities tended to place farming and nutrition-related tasks under women’s domain. Nowadays, in many societies women continue to be mainly responsible for family food security and nutrition.
