    In recent years, Zambia has witnessed increased interest from private investors in acquiring land for

    agriculture. As elsewhere, large-scale land acquisitions are often accompanied with promises of capital

    investments to build infrastructure, bring new technologies and know-how, create employment, and

    improve market access, among other benefits. But agricultural investments create risks as well as

    opportunities, for instance in relation to loss of land for family farmers. While much debate on ‘land

    In recent years, Ghana has witnessed increased interest from private companies in developing agricultural

    investments. This trend is common to many lower/middle income countries. It has translated in a surge in

    large-scale land acquisitions in many lower/middle income countries, including Ghana, but also in

    agribusiness ventures that source produce from local farmers.

    While much debate on agricultural investments has discussed risks and opportunities for host governments

    The share of agriculture in the GDP declined from 16 percent in the 1990s to almost 14 percent in 2010. Meanwhile, those employed in agriculture as a percent of total labor force is declining since 1960 to 2006. Despite losing labor and share of the GDP, agriculture is, and will continue to be, among the major economic activities in Egypt, and a generator for economic growth. The balance between agriculture and other productive sectors of the economy require proper spatial and land use planning. Land tenure is central to this planning exercise.

    Land Tenure Working Paper 14: Growing land scarcity and concern about land-related conflicts and rising levels of rural impoverishment have brought land to the fore once more. The main difference with the recent past is the wide spectrum of actors who want to take part in the elaboration of the land policies, as well as the more and more recognized need to root the proposals in the particular context of each specific country.

    This paper discusses the role of FAO support to the Government of Mozambiques Land Commission since 1995, through three consecutive projects. While each has had a relatively short duration, all have been planned and implemented within a single conceptual framework with a much longer time horizon. This has allowed a difficult and complex issue to be progressively developed and nurtured within a realistic time scale, while building up a strong sense of national ownership of the process.

    The first detailed study of large scale land acquisitions in Africa analyses the modalities and likely impacts. The study highlights the possible opportunities (investments, rising agricultural productivity and rural incomes), if things are managed well and warns about the risks (uncompensated loss of land rights for the rural poor) if contracts are not properly negotiated and enforced. It makes recommendations to the main stakeholders to make this new trend useful for food security and rural development.

    The objective of this study was to identify areas of land degradation in sub‐Saharan Africa as

    observed from space by tracking the greenness of the vegetation signal expressed as

    Normalize Differenced Vegetation Index (NDVI). A series of additional databases was used,

    and, through a step‐wise amalgamation of these, conclusions were drawn about the type of

    (agro) ecosystems under threat. The datasets (based on 8x8 km2 pixels) of weather and NDVI

    (as a proxy for net primary productivity of the land) were averaged annually from monthly
