We use Ugandan data to explore the incidence of land conflicts, the impact of legal changes on their frequency, and their impact on productivity. Results indicate that female-headed households and widows are particularly affected that passage of the 1998 Land Act has failed to reduce their number, and that they have a significant and large productivity-reducing impact. In Africa, attention to land-related conflicts including ways to prevent and resolve them constitutes an important area for policy and research.
