The Land Matrix Initiative (LMI) will discuss its recently launched third analytical report, Taking stock of the global land rush: Few development benefits, many human and environmental risks with the GLP community.

In this report, the focus is on socio-economic and environmental impacts of LSLA. The findings of the report are sobering, in part alarming, and highlight the urgent need to rethink LSLAs.

In the webinar, we will give a short presentation of the main results from the report and its recommendations. Furthermore, we look forward to discuss with the participants some of the challenges faced in collecting and analysing data on this topic, and ways to overcome these challenges.
