Land Leases in the Horn of Africa

Chatham House in London has added to the growing body of literature on land leasing, referred to by some as "land-grabbing" in the Horn of Africa. Jason Mosley authored a study titled Peace, Bread and Land: Agricultural Investments in Ethiopia and the Sudans dated January 2012.

The report concludes that those who suggest governments are the unwitting victims of "land-grabbing" is a misleading oversimplification. Although accurate information on many of these deals is extremely limited, the governments know what they are up to.
