IIED is pleased to invite you to attend a webinar as part of IIED’s ‘Legal tools for citizen empowerment’ initiative on ‘Enhancing accountability in agribusiness investments: experiences from West Africa’
Including panellists Mamadou Fall from Innovation Environnement Développement en Afrique, Senegal, Mark Kakraba-Ampeh from the Land Resources Management Centre, Ghana and Samuel Nguiffo from the Centre for Environment and Development, Cameroon.
Why should you attend? A recent rise in agribusiness investments has increased pressures on land in many low- and middle-income countries. Rural people have come together to protect their rights, seek better terms or oppose the investments. This webinar will shed light on an initiative with projects in Cameroon, Ghana and Senegal designed to improve the accountability of the public authorities responsible for managing land and help people harness the law in order to have greater control over decisions that affect them.
When? Tuesday 6 June 2017
What time? 18.00–19.30 (Jakarta), 14.00–15.30 (Nairobi), 12.00–13.30 (London/Yaoundé), 11.00–12.30 (Dakar/Accra), 07.00-0830 (New York)
Where? From your desk or portable internet device (NB: webinars are online workshops that people can attend from their desk or portable internet device).
Who can attend? The invitation is open to anyone within your organisation who might find the topic relevant and, of course, more than one person in your organisation can join in.
