Session format: Panel.
Land registration is believed to do a number of good things: to provide tenure security, to reduce land conflict, to enhance investment on land and raise production levels, but also to foster women’s rights. These expected benefits have justified efforts around the globe to implement pro-poor, fit-for-purpose land rights registration programmes. This session engages with a double challenge. Firstly, we need to take stock of the evidence so far: What do we know about the results of such programmes, also over the longer term? Have we been asking the right questions about them? Have we been attentive enough to the potential risks involved? Secondly, the current intertwining of climate change and COVID 19 suggests new questions: Does pro-poor land registration help people cope with the challenges of climate change and/or COVID19? What is the evidence to date (if any)?
