    Discussion forum – challenges and opportunities for responsible investors in agribusiness

    Oxfam UK, in association with the EIRIS Foundation, is organising an informal discussion forum for investors on responsible investment in agribusiness. The session, titled ‘Land, Food and Agriculture: challenges and opportunities for responsible investors in agribusiness’, includes a working lunch. If you are an investor, do you know if you are exposed to risks relating to agricultural land – either in equities, real assets or funds of funds? Are you considering increasing your asset allocations in emerging markets and agriculture? This discussion forum offers a relaxed environment for investor analysts to freely discuss with a handful of NGOs that are leading on this issue, what a responsible investment approach to their investments in land might look like. Session topics include: essentials – overview of land issues in agriculture investment, their importance for sustainable development, and relevance to the responsible investment community exploration of the principles and standards – what works for communities and investors? what are the key risk factors and indicators? How can responsible investors identify and mitigate these when considering investments linked to agricultural land? investor action at the company or fund level – how could investors apply the principles and standards? investor action at the country level – could investors encourage better land governance at the country level? If you are an asset manager or asset owner and interested in attending this free event, please email [email protected] to express interest and to request more information.

    Comment se passe l’accaparement des terres à Madagascar ? Qui favorise le phénomène ? « Zones économiques spéciales », ZIA, ZII et ZEE, c’est quoi ce grand bazar ?

    Le Collectif « TANY » nous apportera des éléments de réponses.

    Acaparamiento de tierras: África expoliada

    El Departamento de Campañas y Redes de Manos Unidas ha organizado una mesa redonda sobre el acaparamiento de tierras en Africa. Un fenómeno por el que países ricos y empresas agrícolas multinacionales adquieren tierras fértiles y agua en países pobres para producir para el mercado internacional de alimentos, biocombustibles, créditos de carbono, especulación con los alimentos, etc.
    Todo ello afecta a las personas más pobres que se ven muchos de ellos expulsados de sus tierras. El acaparamiento de tierras es uno de los factores que hoy en día dificulta a nivel mundial garantizar una seguridad alimentaria para todos, especialmente para los más vulnerables.
    ¿Dónde? Universidad Pontificia de Comillas. Sala de Conferencias. C/Alberto Aguilera, 23. Madrid
    ¿Cuándo? El martes 22 de enero de 2013 a las 12:00h
    Organiza: Manos Unidas
    Entrada: Libre
