Venue: Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA), Morogoro, Tanzania
Date: 28 Feb 2019
Time: 9:00 to 13:00

On 28 February 2019, the Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA), Tanzania Land Alliance and Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS) at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) will host a dissemination event at SUA’s main Campus in Morogoro from 9am – 1pm. At the event, PLAAS researcher Emmanuel Sulle will present the findings of a new study, entitled ‘Participation, Voice and Governance in Investment Corridors in Africa: The case of SAGCOT’. This study is part of the wider Agricultural Policy Research in Africa (APRA) programme, convened by the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex, in partnership with African universities including SUA and UWC.

The study’s overarching objective is to understand the extent to which smallholders have been included in the design and implementation of SAGCOT. It analyses the potential impacts of corridor-making on the livelihoods of rural communities – and smallholders in particular – in their diverse categories.
