Increasing commercial pressure on land: Building a coordinated response

ILC Secretariat | July 2009

It outlines key current initiatives to engage with the phenomenon; comments on recent trends in land transactions; discusses ten myths that are commonly associated with ‘land grabbing’; outlines key emerging concerns that responses to the phenomenon should address; and puts forward some key considerations and questions for building a coordinated response.
