Thursday, April 21, 2016
UN Conference Center, Addis Ababa

The Land Policy Initiative (LPI) will organize a Ministerial dialogue on land governance in Africa, on 21 April 2016, at the UN Conference Center in Addis Ababa. The session will discuss key land governance issues in the context of implementing the Agenda 2030 at national levels, with the aim to agree on promising avenues for partnership to cooperate to achieve the SDG goals. The exchanges are equally expected to identify concrete modalities to strengthen women’s land rights in Africa. The Ministerial dialogue will be attended by Ministers from Ethiopia, Namibia and Zimbabwe as well as by a Minister from Germany. The dialogue will be preceded by a keynote speech, and will take the form of a moderated discussion amongst Ministers, followed by interaction with the audience. The Ministerial dialogue is an important contribution of LPI to the High Level Forum on United Nations Global Geospatial Information Management, to be held in Addis Ababa under the theme “Good land governance for the 2030 Agenda”.
