We are pleased to announce the 16th Annual World Bank Conference on Land and Poverty will be held at the World Bank Headquarters in Washington, D.C., from March 23 – 26, 2015. The conference theme will be "Linking Land Tenure and Use for Shared Prosperity.” 

We invite the submission of 800 to 1,500 word abstracts on ten thematic areas which are outlined in the attached file. A technical committee will base their reviews and acceptance of submitted papers on the innovative nature, policy relevance, and contribution to the literature and general body of knowledge of the paper.

We encourage you to disseminate this call widely to your networks. More information on the conference is available in the attached file and on the 2015 conference website. Your contributions may be submitted through this link.

This year, we are pleased to offer new and exciting sessions to the conference: an innovation fair and hands- on classes. The innovation fair on March 26 will feature how innovations in technology and open data can help improve land governance at scale, and will encourage hands on interaction for participants looking for solutions to the land challenges of the post-2015 Development Agenda. A post-conference learning day on March 27 will offer hands-on classes to familiarize participants with cutting edge tools and techniques developed to help policy makers.
