Abstract: From Conclusion: "We have argued in this paper that the legacy of state-led land reforms has left two major tasks incomplete: (1) providing access to the land for the rural poor, particularly the landless and minifundists, in situations where other routes out of poverty are socially more costly, and (2) securing the competitiveness of land reform beneficiaries on their individualized parcels. We have explored how new approaches to land reform and to rural development that rely heavily on the role of GROs and NGOs, show promise in completing these tasks."
