Abstract: A 2010 survey in Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger determined the scale of land acquisition by domestic investors in West Africa. Most acquisitions took place after 2000. Most investors are urban. Formal tenure on customary land is difficult. A move to involve smallholders should be encouraged.
