Exploitation and empty promises - Wilmar's Nigerian land grab

Exploitation and empty promises - Wilmar's Nigerian land grab
July 2015 - Nigeria is a key frontier country for palm oil expansion. Since 2010, Wilmar International has acquired thirty-thousand of hectares of land for palm oil plantations in southeastern Nigeria, and the company plans to expand its Nigerian land bank to hundreds of thousands of hectares. Like similar land acquisitions across the globe, Wilmar’s plantations have yet to produce the promised economic benefits for local people; and like similar land acquisitions across the globe, the process has generated concern, conflict, and resistance. This report is an initial effort to open this land acquisition to international scrutiny.
