EVENT: World Bank Annual Conference on Land Policy and Administration
Last week the World Bank hosted their Annual Conference on Land Policy and Administration at the Bank’s headquarters in Washington, DC. The conference sessions were organized around three themes: (1) large scale agricultural investment, (2) land governance, and (3) research and capacity building. The conference proceedings, along with many of the presentations given, are now available online.
The World Bank, GLTN, FIG, and FAO have also published a joint discussion paper on “Innovations in Land Rights Recognition, Administration, and Governance” (large pdf) that draws on the Conference proceedings from 2006 to 2009.
