FAO’s Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia – located in Budapest, Hungary – provides and coordinates FAO policy and technical assistance to Member Countries in the Region.
The Regional Office is also responsible for preparing the biennial FAO Regional Conference for Europe, where Member Countries establish priorities FAO’s work in the region.
Extending from Lisbon to Vladivostok and from the Arctic Circle to the Pamir Mountains of Central Asia, no region is more vast or diverse than FAO’s Europe and Central Asia region.
Since 2002, the FAO Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia has been organising annual workshops to discuss instruments like land consolidation, land banking and land market development. This has created a European wide network of professionals from different countries and different organisations under FAO guidance. Professionals involved represent the government, the private sector, NGO’s, universities and other research institutes. Since 2010 the network is known as LANDNET. The LANDNET Board supports the FAO regional office in preparing workshops, monitoring of land related policies in Europe and defining future activities of the LANDNET.
