The 2015 conference will take place under the theme, ‘Linking Land Tenure and Use for Shared Prosperity,' in recognition of the role of land tenure in affecting asset distribution, land use patterns and other socio-economic outcomes at landscape, community and household levels. The conference is expected to bring together over 1,000 participants from around the world, including representatives from governments, the private sector, civil society and academia to discuss innovative approaches to improving land governance. Sessions will address ten themes on land tenure and prosperity through keynote lectures, policy roundtables and paper and poster presentations. An innovation fair will showcase the role of open data and technological innovations in improving land governance. A pre-conference workshop, ‘Monitoring land governance,' will take place in advance of the opening session on March 23 and a post-conference learning day will convene on March 27.
