CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Workshop on transparency in large-scale land allocations and investments
The International Land Coalition, Oakland Institute and Global Witness have been developing a research and dialogue project which aims to identify priorities and opportunities for improving transparency and accountability in decision-making around land-related investments and acquisitions.
A scoping study has been produced, which brings together experiences from existing literature and selected interviews.
The next step is a brainstorming workshop that brings together CSOs working on these questions. The workshop is intended to provide a space for dialogue about the experiences of participants and brainstorm together on how transparency and accountability in decision-making around land-related investments and acquisitions could be strengthened, both at the local and national levels.
The workshop will take place in Dakar, Senegal, on the 7-8 of February 2012, and will be hosted by CICODEV Africa.
Deadline: December 19, 2011
