The third edition of the Conference on Land Policy in Africa, a stimulating policy dialogue dedicated to promoting good land governance on the continent, will take place from 25 to 29 November 2019 in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire.

This year’s gathering is hosted by the African Development Bank under the theme: “Winning the fight against corruption in the land sector, sustainable pathways for Africa’s transformation”.

The biennial conference, organized by the Land Policy Centre, provides a central platform  for African stakeholders to network and deepen their commitment and strengthen their capacity on land policy development, implementation and monitoring through access to knowledge and evidence-based land policymaking.

The meeting is expected to build consensus among African policymakers and stakeholders on future direction for addressing land governance challenges, with a focus on corruption.

This year’s  theme is aligned to the African Union’s declaration of 2018 as Africa’s Anti-Corruption Year. The continental body identifies corruption as a key factor hampering efforts to promote  governance, socio-economic transformation, peace and security.

Like  previous sessions, researchers, governments and politicians, civil society, private sector and traditional authorities will participate in the 2019 conference. The inaugural edition was held in 2014, followed by a second conference in 2017, which gathered 450 participants.

Save the date now to avoid missing one of the continent’s most critical knowledge-sharing events.

We look forward to meeting you in Abidjan.
