QTR Brief - Sugar
New research by the Quantifying Tenure Risk (QTR) initiative finds that land disputes in the African sugar sector often cause long and costly delays, with 46% of disputes lasting over 10 years. Half of these are still unresolved today. In serious cases disputes close projects down, causing reputational damage to companies and investors involved, and up to $100.9 million in foregone revenue. 
 
In this brief, QTR share analysis of data from sugar plantations in Kenya, Malawi and Tanzania, and discuss how strategic investment can bring more positive outcomes for all involved in the African sugar sector.
