In the developing world, more than 100 million agricultural families make their living from land they do not own, working as tenant farmers or as agricultural labourers on large farms or plantations. This book examines issues related to land tenure and the prospects for land reform in a variety of settings, ranging from agriculture-based Third World economies to the centrally planned systems of the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe and China. The authors analyze both successes and failures in land reform and consider the economic, social and political effects of current ownership patterns. They also recommend new policies designed to enhance the prospects for development that can be sustained at the grassroots level. The resulting comparative study includes detailed analyses of land tenure patterns and problems in the Philippines, India, Bangladesh, China, Central America, Mexico, Brazil, the Soviet Union, Poland, Hungary, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

Throughout the global community, the challenges of finite resources, budget deficits and growing interdependence and complexity have forced governments and the private sector to do more with less. In the foreign assistance realm, this has translated into a donor mandate to promote self-sustaining development in the Third World, a key component of which is the institutional framework that conceives, plans, funds, implements and manages activities. This book, based on the results of a multi-year applied research project, focuses on institutional sustainability and its role in agriculture and rural development. It concentrates on collaboration between international donor organizations and developing countries to design and implement projects aimed at introducing performance and capacity improvements. The collection of 15 essays is divided into three subject areas. Part one examines the sustainability dimensions of agriculture and rural development, with chapters that focus on the range of meanings of sustainability and the relationship between it and continued benefit flows; a conceptual model that draws on systems theory, organizational contingency theory and political economy; and the action-research methodology for applying the model in the field. Part two is made up of nine chapters, each of which uses the model to analyze a particular case where an international donor-funded intervention sought to develop a sustainable institution. The cases range geographically across the world. Finally, part three draws on case experiences to highlight strategies for promoting institutional sustainability. Lessons are derived from a comparative analysis of several of the cases, and a chapter incorporating the points made in all of the cases is also provided. With its comparative framework and conclusion that institutional sustainability is a feasible objective for development agencies, this volume is aimed at development practitioners and students of development administration.
