Product Description:

The general objective of this volume is to assess the effects of China's rural land property system on land allocation and land use. For almost 30 years farmers have individual land use rights but a number of problems remain. Land reallocations cause tenure insecurity and an underinvestment in land. Land use rights are not allowed to be used as collateral for accessing credit. Furthermore women are discriminated in the land allocation process. These issues are analyzed at the household as well as the village level. The results show that there exists significant heterogeneity rather than a uniform tenure system. The emerging land rental market can mitigate some of the defects of the land tenure system but there exist administrative restrictions as well as information deficits which should be overcome by suitable institutional innovations.
