The Impact of Land Title Registration in Rwanda

Markus Goldstein (World Bank)

Using the randomized, national roll out of a land title registration program, we examine the effects of improved property rights on rural household outcomes. We find that as rights strengthen, households shift labor from their farms to off-farm work, resulting in improved welfare. The specific mechanism at work seems to be a reduction in time spent guarding fields against encroachment from neighbors. These results provide evidence on how land tenure improvements can aid development by facilitating the early stages of structural transformation.
