A good land tensure system ensures proper development. It helps identify the actual owner. The government can obtain the land revenue when the owner is clearly identified. Agricultural development programs can be implemented without any issue. The owners have a secure and permanent asset which they can monetize in different ways. Most owners keep the ownership of their land and pass it to their next generation.

Some set of land rules are same across the world while some rules vary from one region to another. A country may have different land laws for its different regions. It depends on the type of land, the owners, claimed rights, and purpose for which the land is used. The tenure systems clearly define who owns the produces grown on the land. There are even unwritten, locally relevant and traditional land systems to allocate land and its resources.
