Registration Open: NELGA Knowledge Exchange Forum on Integrating Land Rights into National Agricultural Investment Plans

We are delighted to invite you to the NELGA Knowledge Exchange Forum (NEX) scheduled for October 19th, 2023, from 14:00 to 15:15 (EAT). This virtual event, hosted on MS Teams, promises a dynamic exploration of crucial themes surrounding land governance in the context of African agriculture.

NELGA’s Knowledge Exchange Forum is a pivotal platform uniting land specialists, policymakers, practitioners, students, and stakeholders in Africa’s land governance arena. Our focus is clear: to foster the exchange of insights, ideas, and best practices integral to African land administration. In this edition, our spotlight is on integrating land rights into National Agricultural Investment Plans (NAIP).

Agriculture’s vital role in Africa’s development spurred initiatives like CAADP and the Malabo Declaration. However, challenges persist, especially in addressing complex land tenure systems. The 3rd Biennial Review report of 2021 highlighted the need for comprehensive reforms. Our webinar addresses this gap by presenting findings from intensive studies in seven African countries.

Key Questions:

  1. How does ongoing NAIP implementation impact land governance in Africa?
  2. How inclusive are NAIP processes concerning fair and secure land ownership rights?
  3. What capacity development is crucial within land administration bodies to ensure secure land ownership rights in NAIPs?

Speakers: Join us for insights from esteemed scholars:

  • Emmanuel Sulle, PhD: Assistant Professor & Director of Research, Aga Khan University, Tanzania
  • Diane Tapimali: Researcher, Cameroon
