Food & Business Knowledge Platform and LANDac (Evans Kirigio, Gemma Betsema, Guus van Westen & Annelies Zoomers)

Studies the complex linkages between land governance and how they relate directly and indirectly to local food security in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Ethiopia. Found that floriculture investments have both negative and positive impacts through land use changes and land acquisition processes, job creation and employment conditions and technology and knowledge transfers.
