Foreign land deals in Tanzania – An update and a critical view on the challenges of data (re)production

May 2013
LDPI Working Paper 31 (Martina Locher & Emmanuel Sulle)

Includes the challenges of data collection on foreign land deals in Tanzania and flaws in the documentation and reproduction of data. Concludes that the number of non-transparent projects remains high. Many biofuels deals announced in 2005-8 have failed to materialise. Hope this study will make a contribution to a transparent basis for much needed policy debates and decisions.
