Land policy dialogues : addressing urban-rural synergies in World Bank facilitated dialogues in the last decade (English)

Land policy, administration and management are areas of strong client demand for technical advice and operational support. This review sought to help the Bank better position itself to present coherent advice on policy, institutional arrangements and practice. The potential implications are a lowering of reputational risk to the Bank; greater efficiency in the process including joint data gathering; and building of greater momentum and ownership of national land policy dialogues. The review found that dialogues are not as divergent as initially thought. Positions that are central to the Bank's message on tenure security, land market efficiencies, administrative integration, proactive and economically efficient land use management and encouragement of rental markets, all receive consonant reflection from the prescriptive policy advice generated by the Bank. The review notes that especially in democratic environments, policy prescriptions are to be judged in the dynamics of political economy and that land is one component where the bargaining becomes most contested. Finally the review suggests the need to go beyond the desk review that was possible in this undertaking and to use more extensive consultations with task team leaders and sector managers to convert the background paper produced under the current exercise into a position paper with a wider audience.
