Smallholder Views on Chinese Agricultural Investments in Mozambique and Tanzania in the Context of VGGTs

Foreign land-based investments in Mozambique and Tanzania, as in many other developing countries, peaked in the mid-2000s and onward following the “Triple F” crisis (food, fuel and finances) [1]. Like other investments in agricultural land, Chinese investments sometimes create tensions between investors and communities due to the way investments affect the tenure rights of local landholders [2], even though the host countries may need investment to boost food security and create jobs and incomes.
