In the last decade, many developing countries have witnessed a huge increase in land deals that have resulted in the forceful eviction of small farmers and Indigenous communities from their lands and livelihoods. Governments, transnational corporations, and foreign investors are “grabbing land” to secure food, water, energy and factors of production abroad, as well as boost economic activity through development projects. However, land grabbing is not only perpetuated by foreign interests, but local governments are often complicit and large national investors are all too ready to cash in.
This webinar will look at specific cases of land grabbing in Cameroon, Honduras and the Gran Chaco Region of South America and explore the ways in which local communities are being impacted and mobilizing for change.
Panelists: Jaff Napoleon Bamenjo, Coordinator of RELUFA, Joining Hands Cameroon; Stephen Bartlett, Coordinator for Constituency Education, Agricultural Missions, Inc.; Fionuala Cregan, Program Officer for the South American Chaco, Church World Service
