Lessons from the evaluation of land administration systems are important to facilitate sustainable development. The Amhara National Regional State of Ethiopia has designed and is implementing a land administration system since 2003. In the study a systematic evaluation was conducted. During the evaluation process external factors, monitoring, and evaluation functions were considered. Individual landholders, land administration staff, land use committee members, professionals, and representatives of main stakeholder offices were involved in the evaluation process. The study revealed the major strengths and weaknesses of the Amhara region land administration system. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
