Land and Agricultural Commercialisation in Africa (LACA)

This 3-year project looks at what the commercialisation of land and agriculture might mean for growth and poverty reduction in Africa.

  • Can new land and agricultural commercialisation initiatives be used as opportunities to promote growth and reduce poverty and inequality in developing countries? If so, how?
  • What are the better and worse models?
  • Which sets of institutional arrangements between investors and local smallholders provide the best opportunities for benefit-sharing and for synergies between large and small farms?
