Responding to ‘Land Grabbing’ and Promoting Responsible Investment in Agriculture

This report by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) contributes to the current debate on landgrabbing, which is an issue broader than just foreign acquisition of land in developing countries.  The report focuses on proposed principles and guidelines for promoting good land governance and “responsible investment” in agriculture. The author suggests that governments in developing countries as well as private-sector investors can play a positive role in supporting smallholder farmers.
