A High-level forum on land investments in Africa to find effective solutions to the vexed issue of how to upscale investment in the agricultural sector. The forum kicked off in Nairobi amidst increasing concerns over foreign demand for farmlands in Africa and what has come to be seen as ‘land grabs.’ The forum was convened by the Land Policy Initiative (LPI), which comprises the African Development Bank (AfDB), African Union Commission (AUC) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA).
