The objective of the partners meeting is to foster and create synergies and partnerships that are underpinned by the principles in the F&G to support the implementation of the AU Declaration on land. This platform with partners will allow the LPI and its core partners/stakeholders to draw lessons from donor-funded/development partners supported initiatives on land governance in Africa to inform current and future programs.
It is also an opportunity to garner input of development partners towards the LPI programs allowing all to seek synergy and better coordination among the different partners that support the AU Declaration on land. The meeting participants include those partners that have working modalities with the LPI ( AUC, ECA, AfDB, BMZ, EU, FAO, GIZ, IFAD, Landesa, SDC, UN-Habitat, and World Bank) as well as those whose programs have great potential for synergies with the LPI programs (e.g. DFID, USAID, Netherlands, etc).
