The Land Matrix is an independent global land monitoring initiative that promotes transparency and accountability in decisions over large-scale land acquisitions (LSLAs) in low- and middle-income countries across the world. The initiative actively collects information about land deals from publicly available sources (such as media, internet, research, contracts, and government and company websites), while partner organisations contribute through their own field research.
This dataset contains information provided by the Land Matrix on the size, purpose, year and location of Large-Scale Land Aquisitions around the world.
The data provided here refers only to a smaller sample of variables provided by Land Matrix, selected for quick visualization purposes. Land Portal encourages users to consult Land Matrix directly for more complete information about the specific land deals in each country, including their status, name of the investor, whether they have caused displacement of communities and many other variables.
