and Anarfi J.K. (IIED) (July 2004).Till to tiller: Linkages between international remittances
and access to land in West Africa. FAO LSP WP 14, Access to Natural Resources Sub-Programme.
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.

|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.
