LEI are attending the World Bank’s Annual Land Conference, 13-17 May 2024

In just a few days the World Bank’s newly relaunched Annual Land Conference will commence in Washington DC! The 2024 Conference, which has the theme Securing Land Tenure and Access for Climate Action, aims to highlight effective strategies for securing land tenure and access in support of climate change mitigation and adaption.

LEI’s team of experts will be very active at this year’s Conference, with Managing Director, Kate Rickersey, founding Director Tony Burns, and Senior Legal and Land Specialist, Renée Chartres in attendance. They are looking forward to meeting with land sector friends and colleagues. If you haven’t already, please do reach out to the LEI team to arrange a meeting – the best email to reach them on is home@landequity.com.au or feel free to send a LinkedIn message.  LEI will also be part of the Tetra Tech booth throughout the conference.

In addition Kate, Tony and Renée will present in five different sessions throughout the Conference:

  • G10: How Land Administration Standards Empower People, Environment, and Economic Progress
    On MONDAY 13 May at 1pm in room MC C2-350 Kate and Tony will provide a walkthrough of the MCC Land Records and Transaction Systems (LRTS) Toolkit and discussion on the role of such tools in promoting fit-for-purpose standards adoption.
