    Our purpose is to present and test a typology of land reform theories as a means of understanding and interrogating the motives behind land reform and to better equip land administrators and policymakers to enact land reform programs that are appropriate for their contexts. Here, land reform is understood to include the related concepts of land redistribution, land restitution, land tenure reform and land administration reform. The theory typology thus has application for land restitution programs specifically operating in the global South.

    Moçambique tem visto muitos investimentos em grande escala com financiamento e operadores nacionais e internacionais, muitas vezes envolvendo a agricultura e a silvicultura de plantações. Frequentemente, os investimentos procuram adquirir grandes propriedades que permitem aos operadores produzirem eles próprios os produtos desejados. Antes de serem feitas quaisquer concessões a um investidor, a Lei de Terras exige um processo de consulta à comunidade para assegurar que a terra não está ocupada ou para obter o consentimento dos actuais ocupantes.
