Responsible Land-based agricultural investments

The Global Donor Working Group on Land endorses the Analytical Framework for Investors under the New Alliance.

In the multi-annual Roadmap 2014-2017 of the Global Working Group on Land, one of the priorities is to support the private sector in complying with the VGGT. Under the leadership of Grow Africa and the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, a Group of development organisations, including several members of the Global Working Group on Land, have released a new tool to help investors better understand risks related to land-based investments and manage them responsibly: the Analytical Framework for Investors under the New Alliance.

The Framework is designed to help investors identify practical steps to align their policies and actions with global best practices and relevant international guidelines, such as the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure (VGGT) and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (also known as the Ruggie Principles), and the African Union’s Guiding Principles on Large-Scale Land Based Investments.

At its 6th Physical Meeting held in Rome on 16 October 2015 the entire membership of the Global Working Group on Land decided to endorse the Analytical Framework.
