Urban LandMark presents the Land Governance Assessment Framework for South Africa at a pre-Conference workshop (linked to the World Bank Land and Poverty Conference) on 23 April 2012

In 2011, Urban LandMark managed an in-depth review of land governance and land policy in South Africa on behalf of the World Bank. The work consisted of the implementation of a Land Governance Assessment Framework (LGAF) in South Africa - a tool designed by the World Bank in collaboration with partners to help countries to assess their policies and practices regarding land governance, and set a benchmark for comparison and monitoring of progress. Urban LandMark was invited to participate in a pre-Conference workshop, which discussed lessons from a number of African country LGAFs, ways of mainstreaming LGAF results into policy processes and how to institutionalise land governance assessments and achieve long-term impact.

Mark Napier, Urban LandMark's Programme Director and the LGAF South Africa Country Coordinator for Urban LandMark, Wendy Ovens, gave presentations on providing independent input into policy development through the LGAF process, and lessons from implementing the LGAF in South Africa:
