US Investment in Large-scale Land Acquisitions
US Investment in Large-Scale Land Acquisitions in Low- and Middle-Income Countries
Published: Feb 18, 2013
In the past decade, investment in land used for agriculture and forestry in low- and middle-income countries has grown dramatically. This study provides an analysis of the extent of US investors’ and investment fund managers’ involvement in this phenomenon over the past 10 years. With this research, Oxfam America hopes to begin exploring the business models behind these investments and the potential food security implications in low- and middle- income countries where large-scale land acquisitions are occurring.
