CRC Lecture Series 17.12: Large-scale land acquisitions in the Global South. A global phenomenon with local-level repercussions

by J-Prof. Kerstin Nolte 
The demand for agricultural land has increased over the last decade. This is reflected in the rise in large-scale land acquisitions by foreign and domestic investors, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. This presentation will focus on the processes through which land is being acquired and consultations drawing on field research in Zambia, Kenya and Mali. Further, I will discuss the impacts of large-scale land acquisitions on target regions. I focus on the potential employment creation from large-scale farms as well as the livelihood implications that arise from large-scale farms in Zambia.

Time: 16:15 – 17:45 / Venue: Geozentrum Bonn, Meckenheimer Allee 176, Ü 8
