Abstract

The goal of the present study has been to shed light on the operations of land redistribution for agricultural develepment (LRAD) in a context in which very little is known about how the delivery process and the projects themselves are playing out on the ground. The guiding purpose has been to provide baseline information to sharpen the conceptualisation and delivery of LRAD. The intention is to make some preliminary observations on how well LRAD is working relative to its own ultimate objectives, and on the constraints to its delivery. It is hoped that the insights from the study - preliminary though they are - will provide some guidance to the medium term expenditure framework process as it seeks to balance the needs of land redistribution against other government priorities.
