  8. The Land Deal Politics Initiative (LDPI)

    01 January 2010

    The aim of Land Deal Politics Initiative is for a broad framework encompassing the political economy, ecology and sociology of land deals. Globally, powerful transnational actors are tapping into lands outside their own borders to provide sufficient food and energy security at home. The original North-South dynamic of the 'global land grab' is developing into a North-South-South dynamic, with economically powerful non-Northern countries now getting involved. The reaction to this trend by state, corporate and civil society groups has been varied, moving between the extremes of seeing it as a major threat to the lives and livelihoods of rural people, to seeing it as an economic opportunity for the rural poor worldwide.

    17 September 2010

    Working in partnership is how TNI works. TNI believes that social transformation is only achieved by building partnerships, particularly with social movements actively combatting injustice and constructing alternatives. In a world in which predominant economic policies harm the majority while entrenching the power of a small few, forging collaboration and cooperation and building collective power is the first step to achieving a more just world.
