Land rights form the base of land management in the world and pave the way to a sustainable or unsustainable land use. In the context of the World Bank’s land and poverty conference, which took place in March 2019, our author depicts the evolution of land governance issues in the last two decades and their impacts on small-scale farmers and beyond.
