    In recent years, Zambia has witnessed increased interest from private investors in acquiring land for

    agriculture. As elsewhere, large-scale land acquisitions are often accompanied with promises of capital

    investments to build infrastructure, bring new technologies and know-how, create employment, and

    improve market access, among other benefits. But agricultural investments create risks as well as

    opportunities, for instance in relation to loss of land for family farmers. While much debate on ‘land

    large-scale land acquisitions in many lower/middle income countries, including Ghana, but also in

    agribusiness ventures that source produce from local farmers.

    While much debate on agricultural investments has discussed risks and opportunities for host governments

    Land Tenure Working Paper 14: Growing land scarcity and concern about land-related conflicts and rising levels of rural impoverishment have brought land to the fore once more. The main difference with the recent past is the wide spectrum of actors who want to take part in the elaboration of the land policies, as well as the more and more recognized need to root the proposals in the particular context of each specific country.

    This paper discusses the role of FAO support to the Government of Mozambiques Land Commission since 1995, through three consecutive projects. While each has had a relatively short duration, all have been planned and implemented within a single conceptual framework with a much longer time horizon.

    Land lies at the heart of social, political and economic life in much of rural
    Africa. It provides a major source of livelihoods, income and employment; a
    basis for social and political relations; and has major historical, cultural and
    spiritual significance. In many places, rapid socio-economic changes are
    undermining the security of land access for poorer and more vulnerable
    groups – particularly in high-value lands such as peri-urban areas, irrigated
    schemes and fertile lands. Securing land access for these groups is

    This report is the outcome of a study undertaken on men and women’s access to and control

    The objective of the study was to obtain an improved understanding of gender-specific
