LAND-GRABBING & LAND RIGHTS

For a full catalog of Wise's work, visit his Author Page​.

Since food prices spiked in 2008, foreign speculators and investors have swooped into Africa and other developing regions in a "land rush" to control agricultural land, water, and natural resources. Under the guise of bringing needed capital and modern production methods to underdeveloped countries, such investments have secured millions of acres of land with little regard for the farmers and communities currently occupying them. Communities have resisted, demanding secure land rights and agricultural investments that build on and support small-scale food producers rather than large-scale agribusiness projects.

As foreign investors search for land and riches in developing countries, farmers are fighting for secure tenure rights to their land.
