Invitation: to an E-forum on Land, Environment
From: GLTN Secretariat
The Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) contributes to the implementation of
pro poor land policies to achieve secure land rights for all.
>From April 23rd to May 7th 2009, the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) is
animating an e-forum on the following topic: Land, Environment and Climate
Change: Challenges, Priority Issues and Tools.
The e-discussion aims at further enriching the background paper that
provides an overview of the relationship between land tenure, land
management approaches and the environment (including climate change related
issues). The focus is on the linkages between land and the environment
moving from a scientific framework to a country level implementation
framework and to what implications this has in urban and rural areas.
A background document is provided to guide the contributions. More
importantly, the document outlines potential issues, research topics and
tools to be discussed and prioritised. All participants and contributors
are urged to read and familiarise themselves with the background document.
The outcome of the e-discussion will be shared with all contributors who
will also receive the copy of the main and enriched report. We anticipate a
vibrant contribution to this endeavour. We are very much looking forward to
your ideas to enrich it and formulate concrete recommendations.
How to participate:
Log on to www.gltn.net/forum, register and you are ready to go.
Contributions are accepted from 23 April 2009 up to 7 May 2009. Once
registered, you can take full advantage of this opportunity to share your
views, knowledge, practices and experiences on the land and environment
