RIPL’s Malawi case study emphasizes need to address land rights, women’s rights in land investments

As part of Landesa’s ongoing Responsible Investments in Property and Land (RIPL) Project, Landesa staff conducted, in cooperation with Illovo Sugar Ltd, a study focused on Illovo’s operations in Malawi and on several land disputes faced by Illovo and others in Malawi. Key observations of the Malawi Case Study include the importance of consistent, two-way communication to promote positive relations between investors and communities; the need for corporate actors to place special emphasis on addressing land rights at the local level and earn social license; and the importance of taking specific measures to ensure that women are included among the beneficiaries of land-based investments.
