Project: Analysis of Impacts of Large-Scale Investments in Agriculture on Water Resources, Ecosystems and Livelihoods; and Development of Policy Options for Decision Makers
The project was initiated in response to an explicit request from AMCOW for research-based policy options for managing land and water effectively and sustainably. The project aims to support informed decision-making by providing recommendations on leasing agricultural land that will ensure equitable benefits to all parties – investors, current land users and affected communities. The recommendations will also seek to ensure that land and water resources are sustainably managed so as to continue to provide essential ecosystem services.
