Abstract: This study examines the effect of land certification in Libo-kemkem woreda, South Gonder administrative zone, Amhara region. Both primary and secondary data are employed in the investigation. The sources of the primary data were HH survey, interviews with key informants, discussions with focus groups and case studies. Secondary data sources include articles, published and unpublished documents, books and other related materials. The findings of the study revealed that in Libo-kemkem woreda community participation during the registration was generally good but it differs from one kebele to another. But the participation of females in land administration was very low. In all 84 sub-kebeles of the woreda, there were only 69 females. The participation of females in Shamo and Agelahana kebele KLAUC was none. Land registration in Libo-kemkem woreda was almost completed and more than 54% of the land holders have received their book of rural land possession. But there were problems during the land registration. Majority of the respondents (69.9%) were not satisfied by the measurements of their holdings that were registered on their certificates. About 62.5% of total respondents observed that most of the extra lands in their kebeles were not properly identified and recorded. There are corruptions at kebele and woreda level up on those extra lands. Other problems during the implementation of the registration were lack of proper support for the land administration institutions at all levels and the absence of an established and continuous monitoring and evaluation system. The study investigated that while 43.2% of the respondents do not feel guaranteed about the security of their lands to go to another place and work there for a longer period, about 23.8% were not sure whether or not their holdings would be secure. The majority of the respondents (64.8%) expect future land redistribution in the next five years. However, the investigation also shows that the majority of the respondents feel guaranteed that all or part of their holdings will not be taken from them by the government without compensation.
