The Working Party on Land Administration provides an international platform for a high-level intergovernmental exchange on issues related to land administration and management. At the Eleventh Session on 27-28 February, representatives of the UNECE member States will review the work of the Working Party since the Tenth Session and will discuss how the Working Party, with the support of the UNECE secretariat, can continue to work to improve land management and land administration practices throughout the region.
The event will discuss the megatrends impacting land administration, such as, new business ecosystems, urbanization, climate change, disruptive technology, migration, etc. This pressure is amplified by new and more advanced expectations from citizens and the society, expanding state priorities where land administration is part of a complex interdisciplinary environment, growth of the data economy and digital culture as well as reduced government spending on state services. The event also aims to incorporate the needs and priorities of land administration in the UNECE region in support of Agenda 2030 and the New Urban Agenda.
