Securing Africa's Land for Shared Prosperity by Frank F. K. Byamugisha, The World Bank

The book is published by The World Bank and covers land administration and reform in Sub-Saharan Africa. It provides simple practical steps to turn the hugely controversial subject of "land grabs" into a development opportunity by improving land governance to reduce the risks of dispossessing poor landholders while ensuring mutually beneficial investors' deals. This book shows how Sub Saharan Africa can leverage its abundant and highly valuable natural resources to eradicate poverty by improving land governance through a ten point program to scale up policy reforms and investments at a cost of USD 4.5 billion.
