    Since the 1990s, a new wave of large-scale land acquisitions for agricultural investments has emerged world-wide and in the Mekong region, in particular. Land grants for agro-industrial concessions are not new and can be traced back to the colonial era. However, the convergence of the food, financial and energy crises in the mid-2000s has intensified interest in large-scale forms of agriculture to unprecedented levels. In the Mekong region, significant areas of land have been granted to companies for agro-industrial investments, i.e.

    Land Conflicts

    Land Conflicts

    A “land conflict” involves competing claims to large areas of land by groups, of a breadth and depth not easily resolved within existing law.

    Conflict is a major cause and, in some cases, result of humanitarian crises. Conflict frequently overlaps with underlying social inequalities, poverty and high levels of vulnerability. Conflicts are direct threats to food security as they cause massive loss of life and therefore loss of workforce (which is particularly important, as agriculture tends to rely heavily on human labour), loss of vital livestock, and loss of land.

    Land & Food Security

    Food security exists when all people, at all times, have physical and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs and foodpreferences for an active and healt

    Producing food for the world’s growing rural and urban populations starts with agricultural land. Reducing current high levels of hunger and malnutrition, as called for by the Sustainable Development Goals, will depend on land use decisions and governance from the global to the local level. Although about 40 percent of the world’s land is used for crop production and pasture [1], today some 800 million people remain food insecure and as many as 2 billion are malnourished [2]. Achieving food security requires physical, social, and economic access to safe and nutritious food.

    Rwanda

    RWA

    Rwanda is a small country and landlocked. It covers an area of 26,338 km². In Rwanda, land is an important issue due to two different characteristics: first is that Rwanda is one of the most densely populated countries in the world (416 people per km2 – (NISR, 2012). Being an agricultural country, where over 85% of its working class citizens depend on agriculture, adds more pressure on land as the sole economic capital to the rural peasants [1].

    Paraguay

    PRY

    En el Paraguay el problema de la tierra sigue siendo un aspecto determinante de las condiciones de vida de la mayor parte de la población. La estructura de tenencia de la tierra actual, caracterizada por una enorme concentración de la misma en un pequeño grupo de propietarios, es fruto de un largo y conflictivo proceso histórico que ha significado el despojo y el desarraigo de miles de hombres y mujeres del campo, al tiempo de que otros han logrado permanecer en sus comunidades, mediante enormes sacrificios y una admirable fuerza de voluntad.

    Paraguay

    PRY

    In Paraguay, land is still a factor that determines the living conditions of a majority of the population. Current land tenure is characterized by a huge concentration of land being put in the hands of a small group of landowners. This unequal distribution of land is the result of a long and contentious history that has caused the dispossession and uprooting of thousands of men and women in the countryside. Meanwhile, others have managed to remain in their communities through enormous sacrifice and willpower.

    La inequidad en la tenencia de la tierra ha marcado estructuralmente la historia de Colombia, desde la oposición de intereses entre el minifundio y el latifundio, entre campesinos que demandan tierras y terratenientes que se oponen a ello; pero además, un elemento fundamental a considerar es la existencia del conflicto armado interno, que complejiza las relaciones sociales en el agro, sin olvidar también que la disputa por la tierra se dinamiza actualmente con la presencia de grandes empresas nacionales y extranjeras y la consolidación de un modelo productivo basado en el agronegocio para l
