Symposiums

A global symposium on the legal aspects of large-scale investments in land was organized by the Development Law Service and held in March 2011 in cooperation with the World Food Law Institute. Participants underlined the need and importance of raising awareness on food security issues among lawyers who negotiate investment contracts in developing countries. Participants from the International Development Law Institute, UNIDROIT, IFAD and FAO agreed that a global network of lawyers should be established that would promote knowledge sharing and research on the implications of large scale investments in land on food security. The symposium welcomed the development of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Governance of Tenure of Land and other Natural Resources.
