African ministers, policy makers, opinion leaders and researchers concerned with land issues gathered in London with international agencies and experts for Land in Africa, a two-day Conference in early November, 2004, to explore current thinking and experience with land tenure issues across the continent. Participants debated how land policies and programmes for land management can best promote secure rights, investment and economic growth. This document highlights the findings and key policy messages emerging from the Conference.
