Land & Investments

Land investments encompass a wide range of activity in forestry, agriculture, mining, industry, urban infrastructure, tourism, and conservation. Theoretical benefits see investment bringing capital, jobs, technology and knowledge transfer, and infrastructure development to a locality. Yet a wave of agribusiness plantation deals over the past 15 years has also highlighted the risks land investments can create, including land conflict and dispossession.
