Em África, muitas preocupações em torno da exploração de terra são semelhantes, sobretudo a necessidade de evitar conflitos assegurando a posse segura pelas comunidades. O Ruanda é um dos exemplos a seguir, mas há outras experiências, boas e más, sobre as quais vale a pena reflectir.

O Zimbabwe, que chegou a ser conhecido como o celeiro de África pela sua capacidade de produção alimentar, foi, antes da ocupação pelos colonos britânicos no seguimento da sua “descoberta” por Cecil Rhodes em 1890, habitado por civilizações que chegaram a trabalhar o ouro e outros minérios, segundo arqueólogos que encontraram ruínas naquele território que sugerem a ocorrência num passado lingínquo deste tipo de actividade.

In Zimbabwe, Transparency International has been working extensively on land governance issues, and what has emerged is that women are often coerced to engage in sexual acts with a male person in authority in order to have access to land.  Land is a form of property and a source of livelihood for most people in Zimbabwe.  Both men and women find themselves one way or another being coerced to engage in corruption, mostly bribery to own a piece of land both in the urban and rural/communal areas. However, women are often subjected to sextortion in the quest to own land.
