Expert Commentary Series on Food Security and Land Rights


The Chicago Council on Global Affairs and Landesa will feature expert commentaries to examine the relationship between land rights and food security, starting next Monday. This series will feature commentaries from food security and land tenure experts, who will examine various aspects of land tenure security, including its relationship with agricultural production, gender, sustainable development, and post-2015 Millennium Development Goals framework.

This series will run concurrently with the World Bank’s Annual Conference on Land and Poverty, taking place in Washington, DC, next week. Follow the conversation on Twitter with hashtag #landrights and visit our blog and Landesa’s Field Focus Blog to learn more.
