    Brandy, you have definitely touched on an issue that needs international debate. I would have liked to see African countries thoroughly discuss that issue before they commit themselves to alluring projects and offers. There is little doubt that some rich countries of the north would like to exploit land and water resources of poor countries of the south. Such poor countries are sometimes against the wall in terms of development and financial assets, and a number of them are attracted by promises of betterment by investors.  What they don't understand is that they will be selling both their natural and human resources for cheap. Projects have life cycles and once over such countries may find themselves poorer, both in economic and resource terms, than before. There is much more to say about this new trend or promise of great things to come, and I would like to hear what Africans think about it.
