The 3rd edition of the Conference on Land Policy in Africa will be organised by the African Land Policy Centre which is a joint initiative of the African Union Commission, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, and the African Development Bank. The Conference is a policy and learning event whose goal is to deepen capacity for land policy in Africa through improved access to knowledge and information on land policy development and implementation. This Conference follows the second Conference held in November 2017 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia that was attended by close to 450 participants.
The Conference scheduled for November 2019, dubbed CLPA-2019, will be held under the theme: Winning the fight against Corruption in the Land Sector: Sustainable Pathway for Africa’s Transformation. This theme supports the Declaration of 2018 by the African Union as the Anti-Corruption Year under the theme “Winning the Fight against Corruption: A Sustainable Path to Africa’s Transformation”. The format of the Conference will include masterclasses, plenary and parallel sessions, side events, exhibitions, and the use of social media to reach a broader audience.
