World Bank land conference next month

The World Bank’s annual conference on land and poverty will be held in Washington D.C. this year on April 18-20. The agenda and other information is available on a dedicated website, which also includes some information on previous years’ events – including a very interesting trove of papers and presentations available under ‘proceedings’.

This year’s agenda includes much of interest, including ongoing treatment of the issue of the ‘global land rush’, this time put in the perspective of urbanization and climate change. There will also be a panel on land in conflict and disaster situations with presentations on Haiti, Colombia, Eastern DRC and Southern Sudan and discussion by TN guest-blogger Barbara McCallin.
