Furthering Dialogue on Transparency

In addition to conducting research and developing resources on transparency in land-based investment, CCSI continues to facilitate dialogue at this nexus through webinars, side events, and other multistakeholder discussions.

  • In April 2017, CCSI hosted a webinar on “Using Tools to Advance Transparency in Land Investments.” The webinar was co-hosted with the Open Government Partnership Openness in Natural Resources Working Group. A recording of the webinar is available on our website and YouTube channel.
  • In December 2016, CCSI hosted an event at the Open Government Partnership Summit on improving openness and transparency in land-based investments. The event was co-hosted by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, the Global Donor Working Group on Land, Open Contracting Partnership (OCP), and the World Resources Institute.
  • In October 2015, CCSI, OCP, and the World Bank hosted a multi-stakeholder Roundtable on Land Contract Transparency. The roundtable, which was held at Columbia Law School, provided an opportunity to examine the challenges and benefits of advancing land contract transparency, and to assess how participants can continue to strengthen efforts in this area.
