Abstract:

This book advocates land reform as a valid policy option for rural development and poverty eradication. It argues that land reform should be strongly supported by donor agencies, governments and civil society groups. The authors scrutinize the inadequacy of the market-oriented approach, which is linked to the structural adjustment policies of the international financial institutions, and provide convincing arguments for a flexible approach to re-distributive reforms as the appropriate strategy toward alleviating rural poverty., 2001.
