Quan, J. Natural Resources Institute University of Greenwich. (2006). Land access in the 21st century: Issues, trends, linkages and policy options FAO LSP WP 24. Access to Natural Resources Sub-Programme.
Seeks to cover the key issues, trends, constraints, challenges, knowledge gaps and policy options on a range of dimensions of land access. These dimensions include food security and poverty alleviation, gender, broader natural resource access, indigenous peoples, the role of NGOs and civil society, comparative approaches to state intervention in promoting distributional land reform, the roles of land sales and lease markets, the role of small household plots and the implications of livelihood diversification, migration and remittances.

Explores the linkages between international remittances and access to land in the home countries, with a focus on West Africa. Given the complexity of these linkages and due to time and resource constraints, this research project was designed and implemented as a scoping study, aimed at raising and identifying key issues for further work rather than at providing definitive answers and policy recommendations.

Identifies issues that are central to consideration of land access in rural India and provides suggestions for opportunities for positively impacting the livelihoods of the rural poor
Edited by Lorenzo Cotula, contributing authors: Jean-Pierre Chauveau, Salmana Cissé, Jean-Philippe Colin, Lorenzo Cotula, Philippe Lavigne Delville, Nanete Neves, Julian Quan, Camilla Toulmin, International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED). Changes in “customary” land tenure systems in Africa. FAO LSP WP38, Access to Natural Resources Sub-Programme
Explores changes in customary land tenure systems in Africa, identifying the factors driving such changes and analysing their livelihood implications. The central topic – changes in local systems of rules and institutions for the management of land rights – is at the very heart of legal anthropology, but also raises broader issues concerning the linkages between changes in local rules and institutions and broader changes in economies and societies.
Unruh J., (2004) Post-conflict land tenure: using a sustainable livelihoods approach FAO LSP WP 18, Access to Natural Resources Sub-Programme
Addresses the application of sustainable livelihood approaches to access to land and land administration in post-conflict situations. The preparation of this paper is based in-part on the author’s land tenure project, policy and research experience in conflict and post-conflict settings, particularly in Somalia, Mozambique, East Timor, Uganda, and Ethiopia, complemented by additional land tenure work in Zambia, Madagascar, Saudi Arabia, and Peru.
