    During 2012, a key choice facing developing countries revealed itself ever more starkly. Would they choose a development path built on inclusiveness, respect for the rights of their citizens, and the rule of law? Or would they seek a short-cut to development and opt to hand over community land and natural resources to international investors and national elites? Would they turn their rural citizens from landowners into landless laborers?

    This report reveals new links between Australia's big four banks and three land grabbing case studies previously documented in Oxfam's 2014 report Banking on Shaky Ground. The new report also provides evidence that, even after Oxfam first alerted the banks to their exposure to land grabs, all four banks committed tens of millions of dollars in loan facilities to the agribusiness firm Cargill. A former subsidiary of Cargill acquired large tracts of land in Colombia’s Altillanura region that had been set aside by law for family farming.

    In countries where a large proportion of
    the total land area is held customarily, reform questions
    around land and development often tend to focus on the
    customary estate. Evidence from Solomon Islands suggests
    that a focus on public land holdings, even when they are
    relatively small in land area, can yield outsized benefits.
    Publicly owned land regularly includes economically valuable
    land and urban land on which development pressure is high.

    The regionally unique constitution of
    the Republic of Vanuatu provides that-all land in Vanuatu
    belongs to custom owners and their descendants and that
    the-rule of custom shall form the basis of ownership and use
    of land. Implementing this principle, however, after decades
    of land alienation by foreigners using alien laws has proven
    to be challenging. Concerns over actual and perceived
    problems of land alienation through leasing in Vanuatu

    This paper provides a brief overview of
    the intersection of state and customary laws governing land
    in peri-urban settlements around Honiara, focusing on their
    impact upon landowners, particularly women landowners. It
    suggests that the intersection of customary and state legal
    systems allows a small number of individuals, predominantly
    men, to solidify their control over customary land. This has
    occurred to the detriment of many landowners, who have often

    In 2012 Tropical Cyclone (TC) Evan
    offered a distressing reminder of Samoa s exposure to
    natural hazards. TC Evan came only three years after the
    earthquake and tsunami of 2009, which affected 2.5 percent
    of the country s population, causing 143 fatalities and
    associated economic losses equivalent to 20 percent of gross
    domestic product (GDP). The economic growth of Samoa has
    been impacted in the past few years by two major disasters:
