LAND INVESTMENT DEALS IN SIERRA LEONE Great expectations – but can the foreign investors in land really deliver?

 
The on-going wave of foreign investment in farmland around the world and especially in Africa has
sparked heated debate. Proponents say that this is “agricultural investment’ that will bring benefits to
local people and development. Critics call it a “land grab” that will hurt African food security and
farmers. This, Green Scenery press briefing on large land acquisitions by foreign investors in Sierra
Leone, examines some of the benefits promised by those promoting the land deals. And it asks - in view of
proven risks for local communities, food security, the environment and water resources – if the land deals
can live up to these expectations.
