Media outreach campaign minimises land grabbing

In Chikhwawa and Nkhotakota Districts in Malawi, there have been grave reports of land grabbing and land related conflict, due to the expansion of sugarcane cultivation. LandNet Malawi, conducted a media campaign with journalists to raise awareness on these issues, which were reaching boiling point between 2010 and 2013, and successfully managed to raise awareness among the public, government and civil society on this matter, resulting in the minimisation of land grabbing and dispossession of inhabitants of their land.
