Data Set on Over 400 Land Grabs Globally


GRAIN has launched a new data set documenting 416 recent large-scale land grabs by foreign investors. The deals listed were initiated after 2006 and have either taken place or are in the process of completion. The list is not exhaustive but provides a stark snapshot of how private investors and agribusiness companies are expanding their land acquisition deals in the wake of the food and financial crises of 2008. The data set covers close to 35 million hectares of land in 66 countries. GPF is very concerned about land grabbing and will keep updating this list as more information becomes available.
