Tenure Differences and Improvement of Quality of Rented Plots by Rural Migrants in Ghana

 

Research Institutions:

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana and University of Kiel, Germany

 

 

Summary:

The the goal of the project is to show that landless tenants adopt sustainable land use practices on rented plots, although they often lack the incentives to undertake long-term investments on such plots.

Using survey data of rural households in Ghana the project intends to explain how migrant tenants manage the quality of rented plots in the absence of clearly defined property rights. Most theoretical literature have not related tenure differences with improvement of short-term rented plots of migrants. In particular, the empirical literature in this area has been scanty. The research intends to bridge that knowledge gap.
