A global race has begun for one of the world's most precious resources - land. Big investors are pouring in billions. Their arrival can bring progress - and spark life-and-death struggles. To cover this story, Financial Times correspondents reported from Ethiopia, Myanmar and Indonesia, and created a special multimedia series for the Pulitzer Center-supported investigation.

Author and Financial Times reporter Tom Burgis speaks at a Talks @ Pulitzer on Wednesday, April 13, 2016 about his role in "The Great Land Rush" series and shares insights into the global scramble for land. Pulitzer Center Senior Producer Steve Sapienza moderates the discussion.
