Land Governance for Development - Special Online Edition!
Every summer, LANDac organises the 'Land Governance for Development' Summer School in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
This year, however, due to the global COVID19 pandemic, the Annual Summer School takes place online! Covid-19 and the measures taken worldwide to curb the pandemic are of great concern to the land governance community, as alarming observations are coming in about the loss of livelihoods and deepening poverty, government crackdowns on civil society, the suspension of land administration services and irregular land acquisition. We will also reflect on these current developments and immediate effects of the pandemic, and how it might change the future work and priorities of the land governance community.
