Featherstone: G8 land deal to boost land rights in Ethiopia

Today, the Governments of Ethiopia, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and the Federal Republic of Germany announced agreeing to enter a land country partnership to work together to improve rural land governance for economic growth and to protect the land rights of local citizens in Ethiopia. This partnership builds on existing programmes and represents an important vehicle for increased coordination and collaboration among the Government of Ethiopia and its development partners. The announcement came after the representatives of the heads of state from G8 member states gathered in London to mark the handing over of the G8 Presidency from the United Kingdom to Russia. http://www.farmlandgrab.org/post/view/22901#sthash.rw3mjtrz.dpuf
