Abstract
This thesis is an analysis of Fast-Track Land Reform Programme´s distributive effects on Zimbabwe´s Agricultural Development. The Land Reform was institutionalized in 2001 as a state-based strategy to allocate property rights of land from the population minority to the population majority, which resulted in a bimodal resettlement-design of smallholder and stakeholder land-rights.
The empirics has been analyzed with dimensions of a bottom-up approach; commonly found in theories of Alternative Development. The basic aim is to analyze how the agricultural production developed since the institutionalization of Fast-Track in 2001, and if the distributive effects of the reform has underpinned a decentralized agricultural production.

The basic aim is to analyze how the agricultural production developed since the institutionalization of Fast-Track in 2001, and if the distributive effects of the reform has underpinned a decentralized agricultural production.
The results are somehow vague, but there is an overall evidence of a small-holder advantage in terms of increased local production and marketization, for example due to a greater privation from the micro-economic crisis the country went through up until recent date. There is also empirical findings of an agricultural diversification of native-cultivated crops and small-holders cultivator incentives, which according to used theory assumes a greater self-reliance for the population of Zimbabwe.
