Links between tenure security and food security: Evidence from Ethiopia:
AbstractThis study, thus, uses five rounds of household panel data from Tigray, Ethiopia, collected in the period 1998â€“2010 to assess the impacts of a land registration and certification program that aimed to strengthen tenure security and how it has contributed to increased food availability and thus food security in this food-deficit region.
