Ghana to offer arable lands to PUNJABI farmers?

Timely and VERY important report. The damage to the social fabric is huge, and there will be a backlash. When they take land away from indigenous to give to foreigners, the indigenous end up in slums in the cities. It is particularly hard on females, who have less education and are vulnerable to predators.

There are many bad examples of this in other parts of Africa. The elites benefit through bribes or commissions or associated service businesses, but the country suffers.

And DO NOT allow GMO's in -- there are sustainable methods that keep people on their land being productive.
More men and women need to study this type of agriculture, and not the GMO driven model. A rich history and culture is tied to every village, which has knowledge of medicines and local plants, and folklore. All gets lost because these aspects are never counted in.
