Welcome to the online discussion on the World Bank report, jointly hosted by the Global Donor Platform and the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD).

Dear colleagues

On behalf of the entire report team, I would like to welcome you to the eDiscussion on this highly relevant topic. Given the impact which large scale land acquisitions can have for the lives of millions of rural poor and the development of many countries’ agricultural sector, we think it is very appropriate to have an open forum to discuss how country governments, private entrepreneurs, civil society and farmers’ organization, as well as development partners can deal with increased global demand for land in a way that protects the rights of the poor and contributes to their social and economic development.

We are delighted that the Global Donor Platform and IISD have agreed to host this discussion and fortunate to have very experienced moderators who will be able to provide input into the discussion and summarize conclusions. We hope that the discussion will provide a forum to bring together a wide variety of ideas and experiences and very much look forward to a lively debate.

Klaus Deininger
