The Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT) and Principles for Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food Systems (RAI) represent a global consensus on standards for responsible practices to regulate fast-increasing foreign agricultural investment. This might eventually benefit the contribution to land property protection of small local farmers, the eradication of hunger, food security and other sustainable development goals of UN 2030.
