The Global Land Tool Network participates in the Conference with a view to share knowledge, contribute to debates and learning and strengthen cooperation with partners and key institutions. This year, the Conference will highlight at least twenty (20) work streams of GLTN partners through the co-organized pre-conference events, side events, paper presentations, master classes, caucuses and various meetings.
GLTN partners aim to actively contribute to the Conference and ensure that emerging land reforms, policies, tools, strategies, debates and various approaches are geared towards securing land and property rights for all especially for the urban and rural poor, women and vulnerable groups.
