Project Details


Intensified financial speculation in agricultural land linked to futures markets for commodities are contemporary corporate strategies to reduce market volatility and risk. At the same, these strategies are increasing both sanctioned and illegal territorial incursions and traditional community displacement in contravention of international treaties. Transnational incentives for further commodity chain expansion (World Bank, 2020) and to financial trading as a key response to climate change (UN 2021), are rendering acute social and ecological consequences less visible. Conclusions from several interdisciplinary engagements and with affected communities invite the progression of effective networks of praxis that deepen understanding of the complex dynamics across issues of land and territory, human and environmental rights, and revisit, imagine and implement pathways that provide for social and ecological security.
