Greetings from Organizing Committee of India Land and Development Conference, 2019!
We are happy to inform you that the Third India Land and Development Conference (ILDC, 2019) will be organised at India International Centre (Kamla Devi Complex), during March 12-14, 2019, with theme ‘Partnerships for enhanced inclusion and impact’.
India Land and Development Conference, has become a unique annual inclusive Land Convergence platform in India. Established by a collaborative initiative of local and global land-institutions, it promotes inter-sectoral, inter-disciplinary and multi-level conversations on land and development. ILDC helps researchers, practitioners, governments, businesses, entrepreneurs and professionals working around and at interface of land in different geographies, across scales around diverse issues to come together and interact at an open and inclusive platform. It aims to further, intensify and change land conversations, catalyse cross-learning and amplify innovations. By triggering connections and facilitating networking among land-actors and institutions, it contributes to coordinated and impactful research, innovations, advocacy and actions for improving land tenure security and achieving sustainable development goals.
The Second India Land & Development Conference, organized during Feb 19-21, 2018 was quite successful and impactful. It showcased partnership of more than 30 Indian and global land-institutions who came together to organize sessions, events and contributed resource and knowledge to make the land conversations inclusive and enriching and the impacts far-reaching. ILDC2018 with theme ‘Connection, Inclusion, Innovation & Capacity to improve Land Governance’ hosted 16 sessions and 4 master classes on topics ranging from women land rights, community and forest rights, rights of indigenous communities and customary tenure, urban property rights and housing, land and property records, use of IT, GIS and block chain in land administration and mapping, investment and conflicts and land leasing etc. This inclusive platform witnessed about 200 participants from government, academia, civil society, private sector, international agencies and media learning, sharing and networking around land and development in India.
