Building a continent-wide research network on land

In order to support implementing the African Union Land Agenda, the African Land Policy Centre (ALPC) has established a Network of Excellence on Land Governance in Africa (NELGA) in cooperation with Germany, World Bank and other partners. NELGA is a partnership of leading African universities and research institutions. The purpose of NELGA is to enhance the role of universities and research institutions in the field of land governance, bringing research and policy closer together.

The Master Class aims at presenting the experiences of NELGA members and partners in establishing this continent-wide network. The NELGA Nodes (Lead Institutions) will discuss the status of the establishment of the regional hubs and first lessons learnt on establishing such a network at a continental scale. After inputs by key NELGA members, there will be an opportunity for discussion, including identifying further possibilities for collaboration.
