    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.

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

    Este artículo indaga el modo en que las resistencias sociales manifiestan los vínculos entre la cooperación Sur-Sur de China y el acaparamiento de tierras (land grabbing). Con ese fin, se realiza un estudio de caso del proyecto Xai-Xai en Mozambique. Desde una perspectiva neogramsciana,  se argumenta que las resistencias sociales demuestran que la cooperación Sur-Sur de China en el proyecto de Xai-Xai es un discurso que legitima prácticas de acaparamiento de tierras para garantizar su seguridad alimentaria interna.

    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.

    China can not been perceived as a new international actor, still its reemergence as a world's leading

    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

    Across Africa, Asia and Latin America, investors are increasingly approaching rural communities seeking land for logging, mining, and agribusiness ventures. Even in those situations where the investors have followed FPIC guidelines and undertaken a formal “consultation” with the community, these consultations are generally conducted in a context of significant power and information asymmetries. Part of the power imbalance comes from communities’ lack of information about the value of community lands and natural resources.

    The mainstay of this report, however, is not so much an examination of the extractive industries themselves as an examination of the Mozambican government’s and society’s ability to handle the impacts of these industries and where capacity growth is most urgently needed. In this regard, this investigation looks at three principal areas. The first area is about maximizing the receipts that reach legitimate government coffers. This includes the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, which ensures that company and governmentpayments match.
