Abstract

Ethiopia is poorer today than it was fifty years ago. For instance, in the early 1960s, the per capita incomes of Ethiopia and a number of Southeast Asian countries were very close. Fifty years later, however, the Southeast Asian countries have become richer while Ethiopia has gotten poorer. This paper blames primarily the unresolved land tenancy problem for Ethiopia’s increasing poverty. The paper has three major parts: The first part will provide background information about land tenancy in Ethiopia; the second part will discuss the failure of the imperial government and subsequent regimes to end land tenancy; the third part of the paper will examine the possibilities for ending land tenancy and poverty in Ethiopia.

Land Tenancy and Poverty in Ethiopia

Hall I

Ethiopia is poorer today than it was fifty years ago. For instance, in the early 1960s, the per capita incomes of Ethiopia and a number of Southeast Asian countries were very close. Fifty years later, however, the Southeast Asian countries have become richer while Ethiopia has gotten poorer. This paper blames primarily the unresolved land tenancy problem for Ethiopia’s increasing poverty. The paper has three major parts: The first part will provide background information about land tenancy in Ethiopia; the second part will discuss the failure of the imperial government and subsequent regimes to end land tenancy; the third part of the paper will examine the possibilities for ending land tenancy and poverty in Ethiopia.
