ANGOC participates in the Annual World Bank Conference on Land and Poverty
The Annual World Bank Conference on Land and Poverty was held last 23-27 March in Washington DC, USA. Organized by the Development Economic Resource Group of the World Bank, it aims to promote exchanges of best approaches and practices by governments, civil society, academe and private sector. For 2015, the theme is Linking Land Tenure and Use for Shared Prosperity highlighting that land tenure have far-reaching implications for the socio-economic and welfare of the society. At the same time, a number of geospatial technologies were featured as tools to improve land use and management.
On the other hand, several country-level activities on land rights have been organized by the LWA campaign members, including dialogues, and foot marches.
