    New research by the Quantifying Tenure Risk (QTR) initiative has revealed that land disputes can cause losses of up to $101 million across a range of agricultural projects in Africa, while at the same time causing significant harm and stress to local communities who have a claim to the land.

    In response, the initiative has developed a new publicly available economic modelling tool to accurately determine the potential cost of a dispute in a bid to help companies avoid harmful investments.

In Cambodia, an innovative approach to conflict resolution was tested in a case involving a private company, Hoang Anh Gia Lai (HAGL), and several indigenous communities who lost some of their customary lands and forests when the company obtained a concession to grow rubber in the Province of Ratanakiri. The approach was developed by CSOs Equitable Cambodia (EC) and Inclusive Development International (IDI) with the support of QDF funding from MRLG.

    Este libro es una secuencia de relatos de casos cargados de emotividad, empatía e identificación con los defensores y las defensoras del derecho a la tierra. Este trabajo es una denuncia política insistente sobre la desigualdad estructural.

    Ceñido a la descripción y ejemplificación de hechos graves, se puede ver en el presente un indudable patrón de respuesta del Estado y sus instituciones, sesgado a favor de los intereses de latifundistas y terratenientes y represivo hacia aquellos defensores y defensoras.
