This study focuses on the reported (as opposed to predicted or likely) social and environmental impacts of large-scale land transactions in Africa, with a focus on West and Central Africa. The core of the report is an analysis of 18 case studies that are among the best-documented LSLAs in terms of their impacts. These case studies cover Cameroon, Ghana, Liberia, Mali, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Zambia. Impacts were classified into five groups: tenure impacts, land governance process and impacts, economic and livelihood impacts, human and sociocultural impacts, and environmental impacts.
