Guide for advocates supporting communities to secure corporate accountability in agricultural investments

"Following the money: An advocate’s guide to securing accountability in agricultural investments", Sep 2015

This guide is for advocates working to support communities whose land rights, lives and livelihoods are affected by agricultural investments. It provides guidance on how to  follow  the money  to identify and leverage pressure points along  agricultural investment chains to defend land and natural  resource rights. It explains how to collect evidence and conduct  a variety of advocacy strategies to hold responsible actors  accountable. It is informed by experiences and lessons learned  from activists and practitioners throughout the world. It draws  on real life examples of investment projects that have affected  local communities and the different strategies used to challenge  or change those investment.
