This paper begins with a presentation of the legal framework and methods of producting information about land in Benin, before moving on to look at the complex modalities of determining, recognising and 'translating' rights in rural and urban areas (the Rural Land Plan and Urban Land Registry).  It closes with observations on several current issues, particularly the political and administrative decentralisation that is fundamentally changing the country's institutional landscape.
