After a disaster, land and property rights are often overlooked in response and rebuilding efforts. The lack of clear rights often leads to conflict, delay, and higher costs. But we can address these problems before a disaster strikes. We can:
- Create projects that strengthen the capacity of land administration institutions and staff;
- Build resilience by identifying safe and secure spaces for reconstruction;
- Include communities in documenting land rights and creating solutions for shelter; and
- Recognize the rights of vulnerable communities living in informal housing.
Learn how in a breakfast panel discussion. Experts will share their experiences in Sri Lanka, Haiti, and Indonesia.

Background and Objectives
Multiple funds and finance mechanisms have contributed in promoting forest-related activities in developing countries. Designing an effective finance scheme is one of the key elements to enhance effective and efficient forest conservation and sustainable forest management in developing countries.
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.
