Save the dates: Online Dialogue on Responsible Large-Scale Agricultural Investment in the Mekong Region, 9-20 October 2017 | Land Portal

During the 1990s, a new wave of large-scale land acquisitions for agricultural investments emerged world-wide and in the Mekong region, in particular. Two decades down the road, it is crucial to learn from what has happened in the last two+ decades by:

  • reviewing the positive and negative impacts on rural smallholder farmers,
  • examining the effectiveness of regulatory framework put in place by governments,
  • exploring experiences of engagement between the private sector investors and the rural communities affected by investment.

MLIKE (Mekong Land Information and Knowledge Exchange)*  will host an online dialogue on the theme of ‘Responsible Large Scale Agricultural Investment in the Mekong’ in collaboration with the Mekong Region Land Governance project (MRLG) and the Land Portal. The objective of the dialogue is to offer a space for policy makers, policy influencers, civil society groups and researchers to exchange ideas and experiences on the topic. It will serve as a precursor to a regional conference on responsible large-scale agricultural investment, to be held in November.

Based primarily on the different activities supported by MRLG in the region, this online dialogue also provides a space for other stakeholders to bring in their perspectives and insights from national, regional or global initiatives.
