Land grabbing: from understanding to global action

Mechanised agriculture in Tanzania

Jose Graziano da Silva, the Director-General of the UN FAO, urged researchers and others to get involved in international processes to tackle land grabs at the Global Land Grabbing II conference last week. In a new article on the IDS website, Ian Scoones reflects on Graziano da Silva’s comments and some challenging questions.

Ian has also written on the Future Agricultures blog about the progress of research on land grabbing and the opportunities to build new alliances.
