Aid Donors' Flagship Investment Deal Causing Hardship and Displacement in Tanzania

Oakland/Johannesburg/London - Norfund, the UK aid department, and Capricorn are funding the British company Agrica’s industrial rice plantation in Mngeta, Tanzania, which is destroying the livelihoods of smallholder farmers, driving them into debt and impacting the local environment, according to new research by The Oakland Institute released today in collaboration with Greenpeace Africa and Global Justice Now.
