ZBE Zimbabwe Bio Energy Ltd,Acknowledgements, This book is a result of the efforts of many people who have been engaged in. African rural and agrarian issues over the last decade or more During this. time a number of scholars in Africa and Europe have networked and met to. share ideas and experiences of a range of issues agriculture land environ. ment sustainability institutions poverty biofuel development etc A major. international workshop in Harare November 2006 and several follow up. workshops in Sweden and Norway in recent years have contributed to this. book Biofuels food security and land grabbing have slowly emerged as the. major global topical issues and have become the focus of this book. Engaged as we were with these issues through North South research. networks we benefited greatly from the support of the Nordic Africa Institute. NAI in Sweden the Swedish Interdisciplinary Research Network on Liveli. hoods and Natural Resource Governance SERN funded by Sida Sarec and the. Ruzivo Trust in Harare The NAI and SERN were instrumental in generating the. knowledge from the various research forums including the Harare workshop. and seminars at the Royal Swedish Academy of Forestry and Agriculture KSLA. Stockholm April 2008 at Stockholm University 20 May 2009 and at the. Nordic Africa Institute Uppsala 17 September and 4 December 2009. The authors of the chapters have through multi and interdisciplinary. research approaches addressed various contested issues related to biofuel. development food security and land grabbing, The editors are grateful for the support provided in connection with the. research and publication of this book We would particularly like to single out. our former colleague the late Nontokozo Nemarundwe and to thank Opira. Otto Torbj rn Rydberg Otavio Cavalett Simone Noemdoe Peter Roberntz. Linda Engstr m Melinda Fones Sundell Deborah Bryceson Bertil Od n. Amanda Hammar Mats H rsmar G ran Holmqvist Terje stig rd Eva. Tobisson Carin Norberg and other colleagues at NAI At the Ruzivo Trust. we acknowledge the support provided by Esther Paradza Mukundi Mutasa. Sheila Chikulo Tandiwe Musiyiwa Sheila Jack and Alfred Mafika Colleagues. at the University of Agder Norway also provided immeasurable support We. are grateful for the support in publishing the book from Birgitta Hellmark. Lindgren at NAI and Ken Barlow at Zed Books and for the very competent. language editing of Clive Liddiard, The financial support provided by SERN and NAI made it possible to. arrange the workshops and seminars and to publish this book. Africa has seen a whirlwind of development models constructed implemented. and evaluated from one decade to the next These have had mixed outcomes. But what is not contested is the fact that Africa badly needs to see the stand. ard of living of the majority of its people raised The issues of what and who. will contribute to the Africans quest to drag themselves out of poverty and. misery and of how this will be achieved are highly contested The introduc. tion of biofuels in Africa has raised debates about their meaning and about. whether their presumed benefits will help Africans At the same time the last. two to three years have witnessed unprecedented land grabbing not just for. biofuels but also for food production, In 2008 intense debates on biofuels emerged on the back of the energy.
crisis which seems also to have triggered the world food crisis As these issues. dominated the global debates climate change issues also emerged at a time. when the world financial system and hence also the economic system was. likewise in dire straits Our major preoccupation as researchers was to try. to make sense of these multiple and complex crises in relation to Africa and. its people Our view was that the rights of smallholder African farmers were. under siege because the direction of change did not inspire confidence that. Africans would ultimately benefit Today there is a lack of confidence in world. food trade At the same time oil markets are unstable because the dynamics. keep changing from day to day In Africa there is a new propensity to venture. into large scale farming as a response to the global crisis yet the basis for. Africa s livelihoods is smallholder farming, However the problems that Africa faces are uneven given the rising and. unstable commodity pricing The tacit pressure placed on Africans to open. their countries up to agro investors in biofuels food and other agricultural. commodities is creating new relationships In this book we demonstrate how. the issues are being framed in terms of areas of origin Middle East Europe. the Americas Africa Asia the scramble for a variety of resources food. energy labour water mining tourism etc the range of investors state. sover eign funds private sector and strategic interests developing export. model away from the home country search for markets pure profit motives. Clearly as the cases in this book show land grabbing has become a key. security issue, On the other hand there are different conditions and patterns emerging. in Africa unclear deal making various kinds of contracts land lease and. outright land acquisition strategic interests of domestic elites issues to do. with compensation or lack thereof in some instances We have therefore. performed a first systematic analysis of the various interests and issues that. are emerging in Africa We present the stories behind the headlines in an. attempt to provide information that might contribute to action on alternatives. that can leverage benefits for Africa, In this book we have opened the debate beyond the underlying issues to. call for a deeper understanding of the African environment and people At the. same time our work is not anti development as is assumed by proponents of. land grabbing Rather we question the win win paradigm that is externally. driven which resembles development for and not with Africans We are also. clear that Africa requires development that not only protects the poor but also. attracts technological advances and investments that can benefit all African. people We hope this book will stimulate further research and debates on. these issues and that policy making processes aimed at balancing external. investments and the internal development of Africa will begin to feature. prominently,Prosper B Matondi Ruzivo Trust Harare Zimbabwe. Kjell Havnevik Nordic Africa Institute Uppsala Sweden and University. of Agder Kristiansand Norway, Atakilte Beyene Stockholm Environment Institute Sweden.
We dedicate this book to our colleague the late,Dr Nontokozo Nemarundwe born Nabane who. passed away in 2010 We worked with our friend,whom we fondly called Nonto for the past ten. years on various issues that are pertinent to,Africa May her soul rest in eternal peace.
