    This paper is one of three thematic case studies resulting from a set of pilot projects undertaken jointly by civil society and private business partners from 2016–2019 in five countries in sub-Saharan Africa. These pilots sought to test how private companies could collaborate with civil society organisations and other stakeholders to implement responsible agribusiness investments that recognise and respect community land rights, and to develop innovative tools and approaches that could be adopted and implemented at greater scale.

    A questão da terra é um dos pontos nevrálgicos de Moçambique, cujo destaque ampliou-se com a democratização do país em 1990 e a tentativa de adequação da economia ao novo contexto político interno e internacional, que inclui a possibilidade de investimentos privados, assim como o uso e a ocupação das terras moçambicanas. Não obstante a intenção de levar investimentos internacionais ao país, a disponibilização das terras depara-se com questões ambientais, legais – expressas na “lei de terras” –, e com a relação do povo moçambicano com as mesmas, não somente no que diz respeito a sua

    China's presence in Africa has gained growing attention at an international level in the last two

    decades, especially since the 2007 food crisis, however China's presence in Africa is far from new.

    economic power needs to be reconsidered. China's presence in Africa has been generating a

    growing misunderstanding at a different level that Debora Brautigam clearly describes in her paper

    There is today a growing awareness of the importance of providing rural populations with more secure tenure to land and other natural resources, not least in Africa where approximately 90 percent of all land is still unregistered. At the same time there has been a rethinking of approaches for securing local tenure rights in practice. Experience has shown that the conventional approach, i.e., individual freehold titling, has often not worked well in areas where communal forms of customary tenure predominate, which is still the case in most parts of rural sub-Saharan Africa.
