Resumé du document :
"The rush to acquire land is driven by four factors : food price volatility and unreliable markets ; the energy crisis and interest in agro-energy/biofuels ; the global financial crisis ; and a new market for carbon trading. Proponents of these deals say they are competitive, that they economise on labour, and that they produce food for export at prices low enough for poor consumers. But, as research from Cambodia to Cameroon to Colombia shows, the social and environmental costs of such deals are rarely taken into account."
