International Workshop on Land Consolidation and Land Banking

8-11 November 2010
Budapest, Hungary

Since 2007 the FAO led network of CEE countries (LANDNET) and FARLAND are connected, creating excellent conditions for exchange of knowledge and upgrading of approaches. In many European countries, instruments for land consolidation and land banking are under evaluation to cope with current and new challenges. The November 2010 workshop built on previous workshop outcomes and was organized with a financial contribution from the Netherlands government in the context of the G2G Programme, which is implemented by Agency NL. As part of this contribution DLG assisted FAO in organising two workshops (November 2010 & June 2011) on Land Market issues in Central and Eastern Europe.
