This second Conference on Land Policy in Africa will be hosted by the Land Policy Initiative (LPI), which is a joint initiative of the African Union Commission, the UN Economic Commission for Africa, and the African Development Bank. The Conference will convene under the theme, 'The Africa We Want: Achieving socioeconomic transformation through inclusive and equitable access to land by the youth,' which supports the African Union declaration of 2017 as the 'Year of Youth'. The format of the Conference will include plenary and parallel sessions, side events, exhibitions, and the use of social media to reach a broader audience, including youth. It aims to deepen capacity for land policy in Africa through improved access to knowledge and information on land policy development and implementation. This Conference follows an inaugural Conference held in November 2014 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
