Oxfam research shows that some big land deals are forcing hard working families from their homes, jobs and food. Stop the injustice – take action now.

Big land deals are tearing whole communities apart, leaving people hungry and homeless. It’s big business at a big cost. But the World Bank has the power to be a force for good. With your help, it can protect the rights of the world’s poorest people.

  • Factors like rising food prices and a demand for new fuels have caused a huge rush of big land deals
  • Every second, poor countries lose an area of land nine times the size of a football pitch to banks and private investors
  • Poor families are losing the land they rely on to grow food – often evicted without fair treatment or compensation

The World Bank funds many big land deals. It also influences how land is bought and sold. So this means it has the power to help get the situation back under control. We need your help to call on the Bank to play an important role in stopping land injustice.
