The end of colonialism triggered significant redistributions of land in the Middle East and North Africa (Algeria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, Syria, and Tunisia). These reforms were carried out to liberate the agricultural sector from “semifeudal” relics and sometimes to suppress the legacy of colonialism. Similarly, attempts to strengthen tenants’ and users’ rights—the so-called “landto-the-tiller” reforms—were pursued in India after independence (see chapter 9). In sub-Saharan Africa, the first land redistribution programs by an independent government were carried out in Kenya during the 1960s and 1970s (see chapter 3).

Increased access to land by family farmers also can lead to more vibrant local economies. Access to land provides a good social safety net, which induces more farmers to move into nonfarm businesses, given the higher risks associated with entrepreneurship. Family farmers also spend more of their income on locally produced goods and services than do large farms, creating a positive relationship between family farms and nonfarm incomes in the local economy.

It is true that there is no direct way under the WSWB approach to acquire specific parcels of land from owners who do not want to sell them. But there are indirect ways to influence the behavior of landowners who normally would be unwilling to sell their property, including the 22 AGRICULTURAL LAND REDISTRIBUTION imposition of a land tax (discussed previously).
