Africa, a global market for large-scale land acquisitions
By 2013, international large-scale land transactions amounting to 46 million hectares had been successfully transacted worldwide. Africa is the main target of these transactions: transactions accounting for 50 percent of the verified land deals have been reported in Africa.
Ethiopia, Sudan, Madagascar, Tanzania, Mozambique, and Cameroon
in particular, have been the primary focus of land acquisition.
