The LANDac International Conference 2015 (the Conference) was held 8-10 July 2015 in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The Conference was hosted by LANDac, the Netherlands Academy on Land Governance for Equitable and Sustainable Development and organized on the occasion of LANDac’s first lustrum.

LANDac is a network of seven Dutch organizations that are active in the field of land governance and development which includes: Utrecht University (International Development Studies group) [leading partner], Wageningen University (Sociology of Development and Change group), Agriterra, HIVOS, African Studies Centre, Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Conference aimed to:

  • take stock of five consecutive years of research, policy and practice;
  • present state-of-the-art knowledge on how land  governance may contribute to equitable and sustainable development;
  • set the agenda for future research;
  • foster new collaborations for research, policy and practice.

Over 250 participants from roughly 35 countries attended over 30 thematic sessions that featured presentations, key note debates, documentaries, workshops, and games, among other formats. Each session focused on the roles of different stakeholders in the land governance debate, the causes and diversity of increasing pressures on land, and the tools and instruments that are available for addressing land issues. Contributions came from researchers and academics, practitioners from NGOs and development organizations, private sector stakeholders and the financial sector, policy makers from governments, journalists and others.

This report summarizes and synthesizes the outcomes of the LANDac International Conference 2015.
