The second publication, from 2015, analyses the issue of "Formalising land rights in developing countries". Land is a key issue for development policy. A more formalised process of land acquisition will positively affect the investment environment and will enable private sector engagement, while accelerating the pace of change. The study recognises the formalisation of land rights as highly political issue that can have a positive impact on development if other conditions are also met. In conclusion the authors look into the challenges of inclusive formalisation policies.
