Abstract: "Studies in the past have shown that traditional tenure regimes are not a hindrance to farm investments in Sub-Saharan Africa. However, with the rapid Globalisation proxed by migrations, tenure security is increasingly becoming important. Investments in soil conservation measures can only be undertaken when sufficient returns are expected or guaranteed. This is possible with secure tenure especially with soil conservation that has a long gestation period. A study conducted in Machakos and Kitui shows that land titling is indeed crucial to soil conservation investments."
