Abstract

The agenda for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) cites secure access to land as a key means of meeting SDG 2: “end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.” With proof of ownership and reduced risk of appropriation, rural households with secure tenure are expected to: invest more in production and land conservation (Meinzen-Dick, 2009); have greater access to collateral-based credit (De Soto, 2000); rent and sell their land with more ease (Deininger and Binswanger, 1999); and experience less land-related conflict (Nuesiri, 2014). In addition, land tenure security is expected to contribute to women’s empowerment when women’s names are included on land titles (USAID, 2016).
