Research Product 7

Toolkit for analysing transnational land investments

Transnational land investments are a growing concern of high-level decision-makers. At the same time, there has been a lack of practical tools for use in assessing the extent and impacts of transnational land investments worldwide. This research product, generated under the direction of Dr. Bishnu Upreti (Nepal Centre for Contemporary Research) and his colleagues, goes some way towards addressing the information gap.

The research product consists of a spatial assessment tool called the Spatial Context Analyst. It provides information on accessibility, population density, and land cover in relation to land acquisitions.
The tool can be found here

It is used in connection with the Land Observatory Project
