Call for papers – World Bank 2012 Conference on Land and Poverty

Many thanks to Greg Kitt for alerting me to the call for papers recently announced for next year’s annual World Bank Conference on Land and Poverty:

Under the general theme of “Land governance in a rapidly changing environment”, the 2012 conference will focus on innovative ways of dealing with key aspects of land governance in the context of structural change and economic transformation in a pro-poor and gender-sensitive way. These include agricultural investment and productivity growth, climate change and carbon finance, decentralized resource management, land use planning, urban expansion, and dealing with the consequences of or preventing conflict and disaster.

Abstracts are due by October 31…
