LANDac Online Encounter 2020

du 29/06/2020 au 03/07/2020

LANDac – the Netherlands Academy on Land Governance for Equitable and Sustainable Development – brings together researchers, policy makers, development practitioners and business professionals in the field of land governance and development. Despite the current COVID-19 pandemic, LANDac wishes to bring the global land governance community together to take stock of research, policy and practice from around the world, as well as to reflect on the current COVID-19 crisis, as alarming observations are coming in about the loss of livelihoods and deepening poverty, government crackdowns on civil society, the suspension of land administration services and irregular land acquisition. What are the immediate effects of the pandemic, and how might it change the future work and priorities of the land governance community?

Over the course of 5 days, between 29 June and 3 July (2PM – 4.30 PM CEST), we will offer you a vibrant programme, including two key note contributions, three webinars, various parallel sessions and opportunities for online networking and exchange. Before, during and after the online programme, you can join us at our online platform, where you can find recently released blogs, interviews and short videos from colleagues in the LANDac network.
