The Land Portal is a Foundation registered in the Netherlands in 2014.
The vision of the Portal is to improve land governance to benefit those with the most insecure land rights and the greatest vulnerability to landlessness through information and knowledge sharing.
The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH was formed on 1 January 2011. It brings together the long-standing expertise of the Deutscher Entwicklungsdienst (DED) gGmbH (German development service), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) GmbH (German technical cooperation) and Inwent – Capacity Building International, Germany.
This session will build on and contribute to the panel discussion “Challenges in implementing a rights-based approach for sustainable management and restoration of landscapes and forests”. It will include short face-to-face discussions with guest speakers from the panel discussion, engaging the audience directly and through the virtual arena of Wisembly. The conversations will explore many aspects of land rights and restoration, from indigenous people to big data:
- What is the ‘space’ for land rights in sustainable landscape management/restoration?
- Restoration means multiple things at the same time. What are your top 3 priorities?
- What is the ‘space’ for data (spatial data, open data, etc.) in sustainable landscape management and landscape restoration?
The interactions will enrich the open-access online portfolio on forest and landscape restoration (FLR) that is being developed by the Land Portal Foundation in partnership with GIZ and other organizations.
