If you want to ensure you don’t miss any, just sign up on the blog and each Monday a new post will be sent automatically to your inbox.
Also, in case you missed them, two blog series were posted in this period, focusing on updates of the Masvingo ‘livelihoods after land reform’ work, looking at changes in the last five years, and comparing new resettlements with nearby communal areas. You can find the first posts in the links below (they ran for the subsequent 4-5 weeks, so just click ‘next’).
Finally, the low cost book ‘Debating Zimbabwe’s Land Reform’, a compilation of various blogs from 2011-2013, is now available in Kindle format for 77p! You can still buy the book via Amazon if you prefer a paper version for just over a fiver (UK pounds that is).
