Tenure Security and Land Related Investment   Evidence from Ethiopia

We use a large data set from Ethiopia that differentiates tenure security and transferability to exploredeterminants of different types of land-related investment and its possible impact on productivity. While we findsome support for endogeneity of investment in trees, this is not the case for terraces. Transfer rights areunambiguously investment-enhancing. The large productivity effect of terracing implies that, even where householdsundertake investments to increase their tenure security, this may not be socially efficient. In Ethiopia, governmentaction to increase tenure security and transferability of land rights can significantly enhance rural investment andproductivity.
