Stein T. Holden       

I am a professor in Development and Resource Economics in the School of Economics and Business at Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Ås, Norway. I am also an active member of the new Centre for Land Tenure Studies in our university that was established in 2011 and is a collaboration between four of our Departments.

Email address: stein.holden@nmbu.no

Countries where I have done most of my research include:


Africa: Ethiopia, Malawi, Uganda, Zambia, South Africa

Asia: China, India, Indonesia, Nepal


I do much of my research in close collaboration with my current and ex- PhD-students. Most of our PhD-students have been from developing countries. I view this collaboration and investment in capacity-building as my most important contribution to development. At the same time we are required to publish internationally and that is also a very important way of disseminating information about our research and ensuring that we do good quality work.

New Research Projects

Youth Business Groups for Sustainable Development: Lessons from the Ethiopian Model.

Funded by Research Council of Norway under the NORGLOBAL2 program for the period 2019-2022. The project studies youth business groups that have been allocated communal land to establish sustainable businesses in northern Ethiopia. The project combines surveys, field experiments and randomized control trials and includes alternative forms of training to enhance performance of the group businesses.

Contributed to Documenting Award-winning policy:

Thanks to a unique combination of collective action, voluntary labour and the involvement of young people, the people of Tigray in northern Ethipia are restoring land on a massive scale. For its remarkable achievements under harsh conditions, Tigray’s policy was recognized with the Future Policy Gold Award 2017, awarded by the World Future Council in partnership with the UNCCD.
