Abstract This report explores the ways in which global corporations are influencing development agendas in Africa, and the faulty rhetoric that underpins their vision of development. Small farmers produce 80% of the food consumed in Africa today, and farmers’ own investments make up 90% of all investment in agriculture globally.
Yet, when it comes to the design of large-scale aid and development programs, corporate capital is increasingly in the driver’s seat, shaping policies that support international investors while endangering and impoverishing small-scale farmers.
