    From forced eviction to loss of livelihood, social status, savings and even life, land corruption in Africa has serious and far-reaching consequences. Such corruption comes in many forms, and it must be understood – along with the factors that enable it – before it can be tackled.

    There is little international consensus around what inclusiveness means in agribusiness and how to promote it in practice. Nor is there consensus on the land governance implications of inclusive business. Insofar as promoting more inclusive business requires collaboration among diverse stakeholders, this lack of consensus can undermine efforts to constructively explore options for both policy and practice.

    Land disputes associated with Africa sugar often lead to long and costly delays. Our research finds 46% of disputes last over 10 years – and half of these are still unresolved today. In serious cases, disputes close projects down and severely reduce market access. Companies are failing to mitigate these serious risks because they lack the tools and data to make the business case for action.

    Oil palm investments are returning from Southeast Asia to West Africa, where the crop originated. As this interest intensifies, land conflicts are likely to become more prevalent. Our research shows that such disputes can treble the cost of cultivation and cause year-long delays. Despite this, many companies do not mitigate tenure risk because they lack the data and tools necessary to understand their risk exposure and take action.

    El objetivo del estudio fue caracterizar el trauma social en una población en situación de desplazamiento que llegó a la ciudad de Medellín a causa del conflicto armado en Colombia, utilizando como estrategia de análisis la teoría fundamentada y la perspectiva del interaccionismo simbólico. Los resultados revelan tres grandes categorías: El evento expulsor, las pérdidas y rupturas y el duelo. Las relaciones e interacciones entre estas categorías y sus respectivas subcategorías se articulan a través de una red conceptual de trauma y desplazamiento.
