Après une première annonce en juillet dernier, la Socfin a enfin publié hier une politique qui l’engage sur le chemin du “Zéro Déforestation”. Si l’entreprise matérialise les engagements pris dans sa nouvelle politique, des dizaines de milliers d’hectares de forêts tropicales détenus par l’entreprise pourraient ainsi échapper à la destruction.

Fin février 2016, nous révélions des informations sur les menaces que la Socfin fait peser sur les forêts tropicales africaines et lui demandions de s’engager dans une politique zéro déforestation – ce que l’entreprise se refuse à faire. A la place, elle publie un communiqué de presse dans lequel elle tente en vain de se justifier et accuse Greenpeace de diffuser des informations non documentées et erronées.

La nouvelle frontière de la déforestation se trouve désormais en Afrique. C’est une économie complexe, reposant sur un dédale de filiales difficile à déchiffrer. Mais parfois, la longue chaîne de capitaux qui menace la forêt remonte jusqu’en France. Exemple avec le groupe Bolloré et la Socfin. Notre enquête.

A woman speaks about land rights during a community meeting
19 décembre 2019

Matito Leruso was born and raised in the herding community of Lengurma in Isiolo County. Communal grazing land has been central to her community’s livelihood, wellbeing, and identity for generations, but they have never had their legal rights to govern it recognized. None of Kenya’s thousands of pastoralist communities have. This changed in 2016, with the passage of the Community Land Act. Since then, Matito has joined other residents of Lengurma in working to understand, use and shape the new law to ensure that their community land rights are respected and upheld.

The land sector is increasingly being cited as a corruption hub. Many countries across the globe are grappling with land-related corruption that dates to the colonial years and which have metamorphosed into historical injustices and continue to be a source of conflict and violation of basic human rights. Cases of land grabbing, compensation-less expropriation, gender-based discrimination in accessing and ownership of land and related resources, illegal mining deals, bribing to access land administration services among others are not new in the lands sector.

It has been decades since Africa’s independence, and the peasants (rural land cultivators) are still suffering. How did Africa ignore the agricultural sector, after the peasants ushered the continent’s independence? Agriculture has become Africa’s “sunset” sector making the continent the most impoverished region, with over 70% rural poverty, heavy dependence on donor food aid valued at over US$ 51 million annually and high rates of unemployment.  At least Africa is now embarking on agrarian reforms after years of neo-colonialism.

Last week the World Cocoa Foundation, a membership organization of more than 100 cocoa companies, held its annual partnership meeting in Berlin, Germany. The aim of the meeting is for governments, cocoa companies and farmers to identify and tackle the sector’s largest sustainability challenges. A 90-minute session was devoted to the topic of land tenure. The prominence of the session, as well as the seniority of the presenters – the Head of Sustainable Sourcing for Hershey’s and the Deputy Director General of Cote d’Ivoire’s Land Agency among them – is a powerful signaling effect.
