Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Land in Mali
This study by GTZ on behalf of BMZ about FDI in land has identified numerous problems that the Malian Government needs to tackle. Since 2007 foreign direct investments (FDI) in land have dramatically increased. Situated in West Africa, the Republic of Mali
covers an area of 1,241,238 km2. Of this in 2002, 35.2 % was designated arable land and 11.6 % was cultivated land. To date, FDI covers 130,105 ha of land. The study formulates recommendations to ensure that local communities derive the best possible benefits from FDI.
