Generally, it is expected that by doing so, economic development will take off, improving food security and decreasing rural poverty. The relationship between changing land regulations, economic development and poverty is complex and yet little understood. stagnation by means of land reform. With land reform, governments in transitional economies expect to achieve economic growth and thus alleviation of rural poverty. Nowadays, there is ample research to prove that, to be effective, land policy reforms need to be complemented with institutional reforms, and rural development activities. This book increases the awareness of links between land reform, food security and economic development. macro-economic indicators are applied in a systematic way to give insight to concepts such as land tenure security and food security and to provide warning signals for less-desired developments as a result of project implementation. Despite being the result of numerous assignments in various Central and Eastern European countries, the book focuses on one country, thus avoiding a mixture of different backgrounds and incompatible data.
