Land title across large parts of developing world are a serious constraint on economic development. So, if this is indeed true, then it should count as one hell of an achievement,
Rwanda, for example, rolled out a programme over three years, whereby local surveyors worked with land owners and their neighbours to demarcate and register 10.3m parcels of land. By the time the scheme was completed in 2013, 81% of plots had been issued with titles, at relatively low cost; investment and women’s access to land have both improved.
This is bigger than anything that any Indian State has achieved with similar projects over a far longer period of time.
