In Ghana, hundreds of farmers have reported dubious, large-scale land deals made between government/community leaders and big corporations… that have forced them out of their lands and livelihoods. This cannot take place without unethical collusions and corrupt practices by individuals. However, it is important to view this in the context of the larger policy landscape which leaves scope for individuals to engage in such practices.

More specifically, multiple property rights regimes (State, Private and Communal) and lack of clarity on regulatory oversight functions of government bodies creates grey legal areas that can be exploited. The onus is on the government to review the situation, plug the loopholes and create a policy environment that  is conducive and fair to farmers and investors alike.
