Today marks the first day of the EALAN Conference, a significant event focused on addressing the challenges facing Land Administration Systems in the region. The conference aims to bring together stakeholders from various backgrounds, including scholars, policymakers, and practitioners in the land governance realm.
The theme of the conference, “Land Administration for Sustainable Development,” highlights the crucial role that effective land administration plays in achieving sustainable development goals. It recognizes the importance of addressing issues such as the inclusion of women and vulnerable groups, informality in land markets, and the efficient use of land and natural resources.
Throughout the day, participants will engage in discussions and attend technical sessions covering a range of subthemes. These subthemes include education and research in land administration, land governance and tenure, and land acquisition. The sessions will provide a platform for sharing experiences, research findings, and innovative approaches to address the challenges in land governance.
The conference offers an opportunity for participants to learn from each other’s experiences and exchange ideas on how to improve land administration systems. By fostering collaboration and knowledge sharing, the conference aims to contribute to the development of effective and sustainable land governance practices in the region.
As we look forward to the second day of the conference, there will be further engaging sessions and presentations on topics such as digital land administration, land registration, and pro-poor land management approaches. These discussions will provide valuable insights and recommendations for enhancing land administration systems and promoting sustainable development.
