Good practice reviews are also generally nested under this resource type.

Desde 1999 que governos estrangeiros deram um grande apoio financeiro e político à construção da fundição de alumínio da Mozal em Moçambique. Metade dos custos de construção da Mozal vieram diretamente, ou foram garantidos por instituições públicas. Em troca, estas e os investidores privados têm recebido grandes retornos em lucros e juros. O governo de Moçambique, em contrapartida, tem ganho muito pouco. Por cada $1i pago pela fundição ao governo de Moçambique, estima-se que $21 deixem o país em lucros ou juros para governos e investidores estrangeiros.

Since 1999 foreign governments have given large financial and political support to the building of the Mozal aluminium smelter in Mozambique. Half the costs of building Mozal came directly from publicly owned institutions, or were guaranteed by them. In return, they and the private investors have received large returns in profit and interest. But the Mozambique government has been left with very little.

A partir de meados da década de 2000, a província de Tete passou a constituir um centro de atracção do grande investimento internacional, com particular impacto ao nível da indústria extractiva. De acordo com as informações disponibilizadas pela Direcção Provincial dos Recursos Minerais, o auge da prospecção e pesquisa aconteceu nos anos de 2009 e 2010, sobretudo ao nível do carvão, zinco, platina, ouro e metais básicos. Em 2011 a mineradora Vale iniciou o processo de extracção de carvão, em 2012 começou a Rio Tinto e, em 2013, a empresa Jindal.

Although a large theoretical literature discusses the possible inefficiency of sharecropping contracts, the empirical evidence on this phenomenon has been ambiguous at best. Household-level fixed-effect estimates from about 8,500 plots operated by households that own and sharecrop land in the Ethiopian highlands provide support for the hypothesis of Marshallian inefficiency. At the same time, a factor adjustment model suggests that the extent to which rental markets allow households to attain their desired operational holding size is extremely limited.

Recognition of the importance of institutions that provide security of property rights and relatively equal access to economic resources to a broad cross-section of society has renewed interest in the potential of asset redistribution, including land reforms. Empirical analysis of the impact of such policies is, however, scant and often contradictory. This paper uses panel household data from India, together with state-level variation in the implementation of land reform, to address some of the deficiencies of earlier studies.

Although opinions on impacts of land market transfers are sharply divided, few studies explore the welfare and productivity effects of land markets on a larger scale. This paper uses a large Indian panel spanning almost 20 years, together with a climatic shock (rainfall) indicator, to assess the productivity and equity effects of market-mediated land transfers (sale and purchase) compared with non-market ones (inheritance). The analysis shows that frequent shocks increase land market activity, an effect that is mitigated by the presence of safety nets and banks.
