    Tanzania

    Large-scale land acquisition projects by foreign investors, also known as “land grabbing,” raise difficult questions about the processes of valuing land in Sub-Saharan Africa that the current literature does not sufficiently explore. Land acquisitions can help developing countries like Tanzania achieve their economic and development goals.

    This paper analyzes the adoption behavior of smallholder farmers using comparable plot-level duration data for Kenya and The Philippines.

This relationship is found both for data from Kenya and The Philippines and is robust to the inclusion of observed and unobserved village, household, plot, and time factors.

Despite this policy commitment, several high-profile projects in these sectors have not materialised due to project failure, delay, or abandonment.

    Does climate change drive conflict over land use in Mali?

    This study investigates the alleged relationship between climate change and conflicts, using the Inland Delta of the Niger River in Mali as a case study, where this region is an African hotspot area in terms of land use conflicts.
