Going public to improve investment in agriculture

Publication Overview

Going public to improve investment in agriculture

This paper makes the case for transparency in investment contracts.

It looks at the negative impacts for governments, investors and communities when secrecy surrounds investment deals, and argues that global consensus is now growing in favour of greater transparency in foreign investment. Some governments, particularly that of Liberia, are leading the way. It is time for others to follow.
