LANDac is a partnership between Dutch organizations active in the field of land governance with the aim to optimize the link between land governance, sustainable development and poverty alleviation by generating, analyzing, synthesizing and disseminating knowledge. Some of its activities include PhD programmes, short-term research in collaboration with Southern partners, an annual Summer School on Land Governance, organization of meetings and lectures and providing a platform for a wider range of stakeholders involved in and interested in land governance in the Netherlands.
In the Land Governance Multi-Stakeholder Dialogue (LG MSD), the Netherlands government, Dutch companies, Dutch financial institutions, Dutch civil society organizations and Dutch knowledge institutes work together to achieve better land governance in line with the Voluntary Guidelines on the Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the context of national food security (VGGTs). Participants in the LG MSD contribute to the development of learning trajectories/ cases as well as dialogue sessions with decision makers.
With the LANDac Land Forum we aim to discuss in a multi-stakeholder platform under what conditions foreign and domestic agribusiness can contribute to food security and inclusive and sustainable development in Africa, Asia and Latin America. We invite a small selection of policy makers, civil society representatives, researchers and private sector stakeholders for three Forums (to be held in 2013, 2014 and 2015) during which they address this issue based on their own experiences on the ground.
