The LANDdialogue is a multi-stakeholder initiative that aims to improve global land governance through strengthening the practical application and monitoring of improvement measures by Dutch companies, the Dutch government, knowledge institutes and NGOs, in line with the VGGT principles.
There is a strong link between the work of the LANDdialogue and LANDac. As LANDac II continues to bring together actors, conduct research and distribute information, it’s knowledge agenda feeds into and fosters the LANDdialogue’s discussions with its stakeholders and other Dutch actors. Networks of LANDac and the LANDdialogue largely overlap and continuously meet throughout the year, with LANDac’s Annual International Conference and the LANDdialogue’s High-level dialogue session as important periodic events for synergy and collaboration. The LANDdialogue is furthermore hosted by the LANDac secretariat.
Since the first LANDdialogue High Level meeting in 2015, a range of activities have been taken up, varying from a one-year programme on ‘Scaling up women’s land rights’ to the publication of an investor guide to identify land governance risks in investment decisions. Below you can find activities, publications and other outputs of the LANDdialogue.
An overview of all land-related events in the Netherlands and beyond can be found here on the general LANDac website. This page includes information specifically about the LANDdialogue: summaries of meetings of the Organising Committee (OC), past newsletters and upcoming LANDdialogue activities.
