Agricultural investments in Mozambique An analysis of investment trends, business models and social and environmental conduct
Since the food and energy price crises of 2007/2008, new commercial opportunities within global soft commodity markets have led to increased investment in agricultural production. This is evidenced by a rapid influx of agricultural foreign direct investment (FDI) particularly to sub-Saharan Africa and, especially, Mozambique where agro-ecologically suitable land is comparatively cheap and abundant (World Bank 2011; Anseeuw et al. 2012). Although increased investment in agriculture is critical to realizing long-term global and national food and energy security objectives (Schmidhuber et al. 2009), numerous critics have expressed concerns that the benefits of (particularly large-scale plantation monoculture) investments tend not to the costs.
