Abstract: The paper is aimed at the promotion of voluntary land consolidation through the improvement of land plots exchange. The issue of the existing land plots boundaries adjustment in the course of voluntary land consolidation has been singled out. Possibilities, advantages and risks of land plots exchange without changing the existing boundaries as a constituent of land consolidation measures have been substantiated. The improvement of approaches to land plots exchange modelling without the existing boundaries adjustment has been suggested. Demands to the formation of consolidated land tenures as the result of exchange have been singled out. Theory of combinations has been applied to specify land plots exchange options. Calculation formulas for the number of the optimal consolidated agricultural land tenure placement options have been suggested. The calculations can be applied in the optimization and heuristic approaches to land reallocation and at land consolidation performance evaluation. Suggested approaches facilitate the implementation of heuristic methods especially in non-standard conditions, allow to increase the number of developers, especially involving experts with little experience. The results can be used for land plots lease optimization.

TL;DR: In this article , the problem of identifying the peerness of land plots is scrutinized, i.e. the recognition of land items to be peer provided the difference of their values is less than 10%.
Abstract: The article scrutinizes the problem of land plots exchange with the aim of the spatial land improvement. At the current stage, the problem of the removal of overlapping of agricultural lands in agricultural land masses, elaboration and improvement of land consolidation mechanisms; the implementation of compulsory complex land consolidation is under discussion; there are preconditions of the improvement of the technical substantiation of land plot alienation for public needs. In this context, the problem of the identification of the peerness of land plots is scrutinized, i.e. the recognition of land plots to be peer provided the difference of their values is less than 10%. The study aims at the improvement of approaches to the definition of the affordable difference of land plots values which can be considered peer at the exchange. The provisions of legislation have been analysed which precondition the peer land plots exchange and specify the affordable difference of values of such land plots. It has been revealed that due to the vague definition of the affordable difference of land plot value, there is the uncertainty of 1/110 (≈0,9%) to 13/220 (≈5,9%) of the value of land plot. The existence of such mistake is firstly the reason for the disputes of the equal land plots exchange in the court, secondly, it is a hurdle for the voluntary involvement of landowners to land exchange. The specification of the definition of the affordable difference of land plots values which can be considered to be equal has been suggested. The results gained can be used at the definition of land plots as the equal at exchange and sublease; at the implementation of complex land consolidation; at the alteration of legal acts on land consolidation; at the modeling of land reallotment based on the heuristic or optimizational approach.

Abstract: Дослідження присвячене актуальному питанню перерозподілу земель у складі заходів щодо консолідації земель. Виокремлена проблематика пошуку територіальних резервів, які можуть створити просторову основу перерозподілу земель. Метою дослідження є виокремлення та обґрунтування територіальних резервів, які можуть бути залучені до процесу консолідації земель. Розглянуто землі, які з’являються в результаті просторової оптимізації земельного масиву або землекористування, земельні ділянки, викуплені у землевласників за їх бажанням, землі резерву та запасу, земельні ділянки, які відносять до невитребуваних паїв та відумерлої спадщини.

TL;DR: In this paper , the problem of land reallotment modeling in agricultural land masses aiming at land consolidation is scrutinized in the context of agricultural land re-allocation, and the results of the research can be used at the realization of complex and individual land consolidation projects; at the optimization of land tenure by the sublease of land plots; as a material for the substantiation of the decision making on the land tenure optimization by territorial communities.
Abstract: The problem of land reallotment modeling in agricultural land masses aiming at land consolidation is scrutinized in the article. The topicality of the research is predefined by the need for the optimization of the structure of land tenure within an agricultural land mass, the implementation of measures on land consolidation. The research is aimed at the substantiation of the theory of combinations aiming at the improvement of the exchange of land plots, i.e. the choosing of alternative land plots within an agricultural land mass. The calculations are based on choosing the land plots to be exchanged to provide the optimal for agricultural activities spatial characteristics of land plots. The calculation of the variants of the formation of the consolidated land tenure by a land owner who has the right to own the prevailing share of a typical agricultural land mass has been suggested. The results of the research can be used at the realization of complex and individual land consolidation projects; at the optimization of land tenure by the sublease of land plots; as a material for the substantiation of the decision making on the land tenure optimization by territorial communities; in the following research on spatial land tenure and land ownership spatial improvement.

Abstract: З метою вирішення проблеми недостатньої лісистості території дедалі частіше розглядаються самозаліснені земельні ділянки сільськогосподарського призначення. Проте, питання залучення таких земельних ділянок, якщо вони знаходяться у приватній власності, на своєму шляху має низку проблемних аспектів, зокрема, у випадку відчуження з наступною їх передачею до земель лісового фонду.

Abstract: This paper aims to give an overview of the main technical and policy issues that have to be taken into account when land consolidation is implemented in the most practicable way. The paper focuses on land consolidation for agricultural purposes, that is land consolidation as an instrument to abolish fragmentation of agricultural holdings. Land consolidation for specific non-agricultural purposes such as nature and landscape is not an issue in this paper. Land consolidation on a voluntary basis implies too much uncertainty with respect to its final results. Land consolidation can only be carried out in an efficient way when it is based on special legislation. Therefore the description of the land consolidation process in this paper emanates from a process provided by law. In countries where land consolidation already has a long history, procedures have become rather complicated, because over the years the instrument of land consolidation has been developed in such a way that the fulfilment of a variety of different goals with respect to the development of the rural area can be achieved. The advanced multi-purpose character of the instrument may imply that the instrument is becoming too inert. Therefore there is a need to go back to the fundamentals of land consolidation. The result may also be of interest for countries where land consolidation still has to start. In Chapter 2 some definitions and main characteristics of land consolidation will be mentioned. Chapter 3 will give an overview of a practicable organization and practicable distribution of responsibilities. Chapter 4 describes a practicable land consolidation process. The paper is a summary of a publication about land consolidation, prepared for the Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) of the UN.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors investigated the determinants influencing the willingness of landholder farmers to participate in voluntary land consolidation processes and found that land consolidation is a proper tool to solve inefficiencies in agricultural production, as it enables consolidating plots based on the consent of landholders.
Abstract: In many African countries and especially in the highlands of Ethiopia—the investigation site of this paper—agricultural land is highly fragmented. Small and scattered parcels impede a necessary increase in agricultural efficiency. Land consolidation is a proper tool to solve inefficiencies in agricultural production, as it enables consolidating plots based on the consent of landholders. Its major benefits are that individual farms get larger, more compact, contiguous parcels, resulting in lower cultivation efforts. This paper investigates the determinants influencing the willingness of landholder farmers to participate in voluntary land consolidation processes. The study was conducted in Gozamin District, Amhara Region, Ethiopia. The study was mainly based on survey data collected from 343 randomly selected landholder farmers. In addition, structured interviews and focus group discussions with farmers were held. The collected data were analyzed quantitatively mainly by using a logistic regression model and qualitatively by using focus group discussions and expert panels. According to the results, landholder farmers are predominantly willing to participate in voluntary land consolidation (66.8%), while a substantive fraction of farmers express unease with voluntary land consolidation. The study highlighted the following four determinants to be significant in influencing the willingness of farmers for voluntary land consolidation: (1) the exchange should preferably happen with parcels of neighbors, (2) land consolidation should lead to better arranged parcels, (3) nearness of plots to the farmstead, and (4) an expected improvement in productivity. Interestingly, the majority of farmers believes that land consolidation could reduce land use conflicts. The study provides evidence that policymakers should consider these socio-economic, legal, cultural, infrastructural, and land-related factors when designing and implementing voluntary land consolidation policies and programs.
