Writers have guest-edited an African Studies Review forum on Understanding Land Deals in Limbo in Africa which examines the contentious politics of incomplete land grabs in Senegal;Tanzania and Zambia. These studies show that even when land deals are cancelled;stalled;downsized;transferred to new owners;or stay dormant and speculative for many years;they can still produce far-reaching consequences that often go unnoticed. The complex interplay of land governance;local political dynamics and capital’s own contradictions can push land deals in different and unexpected directions.

Au Burkina Faso, le secteur agro-industriel, qui s’occupe essentiellement de la transformation des produits de l’agriculture, de l’élevage et de la pêche, est largement dominé par une main-d’œuvre féminine, contrairement aux autres secteurs de l’économie plutôt intensifs en travail masculin. Dans le Plan National de Développement Economique et Social (PNDES), les autorités entendent accorder plus de soutien à ce secteur en termes d’investissements, afin de lui permettre de se développer et d’assurer un processus de transformation structurelle de l’économie nationale.

L'Afrique n'est pas sur la bonne voie pour atteindre les cibles de l'objectif de développement durable (ODD) 2 visant à éliminer la faim et à assurer l'accès de tous à une alimentation saine, nutritive et suffisante tout au long de l'année, et à mettre fin à toutes les formes de malnutrition. Les estimations les plus récentes montrent que 281,6 millions de personnes sur le continent, soit plus d'un cinquième de la population, ont été confrontées à la faim en 2020, soit 46,3 millions de plus qu'en 2019.
