Abstract : Contemporary discourse conveys a representation of an Africa possessing land free for international agricultural investments. The realities are far more complex, with great diversity in terms of available resources, rights and use systems. Development options will have to manage the potentially conflicting objectives of conservation and development, and take into account the urgent reality of a young population searching for jobs.
