Land investments, accountability and the law: Lessons from Ghana

By: Eric Yeboah, Mark Kakraba-Ampeh

The recent wave of land deals for agribusiness investments has highlighted the widespread demand for greater accountability in the governance of land and investment. Legal frameworks influence opportunities for accountability, and recourse to law has featured prominently in grassroots responses to the land deals.

This report discusses accountability in land deals in Ghana. It scrutinizes the country’s legal framework governing land investments, and explores the opportunities the framework provides and how communities can seize them in practice. It finds that there is a need for informed and inclusive national-level debate on tenure and, ultimately, on desirable development models, and suggests some ways forward.
