Land is a critically important asset that underpins most economic activities. Land use and land rights are central to the work of the World Bank Group and to eradicating poverty, building shared prosperity, and fostering private investment and gender equality.  Yet, as important as land is, 70 percent of the world’s population still lacks access to proper land titling or demarcation.

Join our panelists as they explore the World Bank Group’s role in addressing land administration challenges and how best to coordinate activities across multiple sectors and global practices. Panelists will also discuss the findings of a recent IEG report that looked at 14 World Bank land administration projects.  The learning event is jointly hosted by the Independent Evaluation Group and the Land and Geospatial Unit (part of the Social, Urban, Rural, and Resilience Global Practice).
