Land Grabbing

In the last decade, 80 million acres of land has been “land grabbed” - an area the same size as Portugal.

Land grabbing is the issue of large scale buying and selling of land by wealthy governments, individuals and companies, which majorly affects small scale farmers and MAPA in critical food deserts.

The practice leads to the forced, nonconsensual, eviction of MAPA communities. Land grab laws justify human rights abuse and take away the indigenous land rights of the people that live and depend on the land.
