Informing the debate on land

Following the financial crisis of 2007-8 there was a growth of private sector interest in land investments. NGOs and civil society raised awareness of ‘land grabbing’ and there was a rise in media interest, often with use of ‘killer facts’ and sensational headlines.

Through its Land theme, Future Agricultures has examined the drivers and consequences of land deals through a detailed research programme, and engagement with policy makers, civil society and academics across Africa and beyond.

Part of a series of Impact Stories based on the Future Agricultures Consortium’s work from 2008-2015.
