Information and knowledge sources:Local case studies & Systematic national data evidence Dimension, contexts  processes and pattern  3’600 deals, whereof 2’640 concessions type, 1,350 with spatial reference  1.1 Mio ha concessions (without mining exploration)  Agri 140’000 ha & forestry: 300’000 ha  ~15% of all villages have a least 1 concession

    13. 13. Tendency of shifting upland crops to hinterland due to commercial crop pressure in well accessibly regions Shifting cultivation dominated landscapes between 2001 - 2009 K. Hurni , et al, in prep
    14. 14. Summary & some key messages• This is first , one point in time, picture of dimension and context of land deals. (But 1. contract farming not included in this and 2. the distributed mandates among the sectors do not yet ensure consistent monitoring & sharing)• Only very few products dominate the land rented out in the agriculture and forestry sector• FDI deals are on average by factor 3 -5 time larger in terms of area granted than domestic ones, and by tendency in more remote regions• Land deals are not mainly in the very marginal areas (in terms of poverty, accessibility and ethnicity), but still a considerable share of such regions is potentially affected• Some indications that land deals are to a considerable share taking place in regions with rotational agricultural systems• Some signs that, due to CPL pressure in better accessible regions, subsistence food production is shifted to more remote location (temporary symptom only ?)
