Land Governance Assessment Framework meeting
Monday, April 18, 2011
Room location: MC C2-131

The 1-day workshop faciliatated discussions on how the roll out of LGAFs through the partnership can link up and add value to ongoing initiatives by core partners for the monitoring and assessment of land governance.  During the workshop, participants and global partners in the land governance assessment reviewed implementation experience by country coordinators to highlight potential uses and limitations of the LGAF, identifying issues subject to in-depth technical discussion during a follow-up workshop.  The workshop allowed for a determination of priority issues and next steps, including a discussion of how LGAF implementation can respond to these in ways that exploit synergies at country, regional, and possibly global level.
