Showcasing Urban LandMark's work at the April 2012 World Bank Conference on Land and Poverty

Urban LandMark will present at the annual World Bank Conference on Land and Urban Poverty in April 2012. The Conference aims to foster dialogue and sharing of good practices by showcasing the diversity of reforms, approaches and experiences that are being implemented in the land sector around the world.

Held under the theme of land governance in a rapidly changing environment, the 2012 Conference will provide a forum to discuss innovative approaches to dealing with different aspects of land governance in the context of structural change and economic transformation, climate change, increased demand for key natural resources, urban expansion and (post) conflict in a pro-poor and gender-sensitive perspective. Our work on a land governance assessment framework for South Africa and our Maputo 'operation of the land market' study fit well with the Conference theme: land governance in a rapidly changing environment.
