This webinar will profile two tools seeking to bring greater transparency to the governance and use of land in the context of land-based investments.
The first, OpenLandContracts.org, is an online repository of publicly available contracts for large-scale land, agriculture, and forestry projects. The repository makes land contracts easier to find and understand, informing public authorities, empowering communities, and supporting increased transparency around land investments.
The second tool, Global Forest Watch, is an online forest monitoring and alert system that provides information needed to better manage and conserve forests, including timely and precise information and alerts about the status of forest landscapes worldwide. Both tools serve a variety of stakeholders, including governments, communities, civil society, the private sector, and the general public.
