Journalist Michael Peel talks about his experience reporting on land rights in Myanmar, part of the Financial Times' special project, The Great Land Rush. The series explores the global race for one of the world's most precious resources—land.

FT correspondents report from Ethiopia, Myanmar and Indonesia, with support from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
