Foreign investment in Mali's arable land jumps by 60%, says report 17.11.2011 The Guardian -- World Latest
Report says largescale foreign agri-investment offers 'few solutions to the poverty and hunger plaguing the country' Foreign investment in arable land in Mali increased by 60% between 2009 and 2010, says a report published on Thursday to coincide with the first international farmers' conference to tackle the global rush for land. The report, by the US-based Oakland Institute and the Malian national farmers organisation, estimates that more than 544,500 hectares of Malian land have been leased or were under negotiation for lease by the end of 2010. The bulk of these land deals – covering an area the report says could sustain more than half a million small farmers – were negotiated by just 22 foreign agri-investors. Less than 5% of west Africa's largest country is arable. Mali has been at the centre of agri-investor interest and farmer resistance to the largescale deals that have sparked growing concern from international aid and development organisations. "Corporations, fund managers ...

Time to swoop on the vulture funds | Tim Jones 17.11.2011 Guardian: Comment is Free
UK law prevents aggressive debt-gatherers from attacking poor countries. The rest of the world should follow suit The Guardian has revealed that a US vulture fund is suing the second-poorest country in the world for a debt that was alleged to have been obtained illegally. FG Hemisphere was paid $3.3m for the debt to a Bosnian state-owned company, but is now suing for $100m in the courts of Jersey. Vulture funds prey on countries struggling to pay their debts, whether that be in Africa or Europe. In this case, the Democratic Republic of the Congo built up a huge debt under the dictatorial reign of Joseph Mobutu . It was well known that Mobutu was systematically pillaging the country's coffers. But lenders including the IMF, World Bank and UK government kept writing the loan cheques to keep him on side during the cold war, and to win business for western companies. The loans were finally stopped in the 1990s. Mobutu was kicked out of power in 1997, and the Congolese people suffered what has ...

Bangladesh government goes shopping for farmland 17.11.2011 The Guardian -- World Latest
Authorities in Bangladesh are looking abroad for land to grow food to meet the country's increasing demand and to create jobs for Bangladeshi migrants The Bangladesh government is looking near and far – from Ukraine to South Sudan – to bolster food security at home, according to the ministry of food and disaster management. "Whether from the public sector or the private sector, the government of Bangladesh is fully behind any attempts to seek out unused land beyond its borders," said the department's minister, Muhammad Abdur Razzaque. Bangladesh officials are in talks with Ukraine for wheat production, are considering Cambodia for rice, and are visiting parts of sub-Saharan Africa to explore similar ventures, he added. The country of 160 million people is seeking land to serve its food needs, as well as to create jobs for migrants, who sent home $11bn in both 2009 and 2010, 12% of GDP in 2009, according to the government. It is a way to cushion Bangladesh, where farmland is ...
