The SWAC/OECD is leading a regional dialogue on West African dynamics related
to commercial pressure on land. As part of this dialogue process, the SWAC is
organising a conference on 9 December in which we would like to invite you to
participate. The African Union and ECOWAS are discussing guidelines as it is
essential for West African countries to have a common position. Within the
context and during the G8, some investor states are also calling for fair and
respectful negotiations. As it is difficult to take into account the
competitive positions or even national political and economic interests, this
conference shall be an opportunity to reach consensus among representatives
of organisations, institutions and states.

/Rome, 25 Jan 2010/.  Land tenure and access to land are key to a number of
rural development issues, not to mention basic economic and social human
rights, such as the right to food.  Land Day aims to zero in on land and
associated agro-industry related global challenges with a long-term rural
development perspective.

It will provided an important opportunity to share knowledge on the diversity
of initiatives related to land policies, land governance and investment and
rural development, and provide ground to move toward identifying a tool kit
for improved coordination among stakeholders.

*Meeting objectives *

* To share knowledge on the diversity of ongoing initiatives related to land
policies and land tenure;
* To put some of the recent and new land-related global challenges and new
topics in context and in a broader perspective, considering linkages in a
perspective of long-term rural development;
* To prepare a possible improved collaboration and cooperation among
stakeholders and establish a further process of knowledge exchange with a
broader group of stakeholders.

The outputs of Land Day will be subsequently taken up at a session on Land
and Development at the Platform Annual General Assembly, 26-27 January 2010.
