On April 27 and 28, 2017, a first multi-stakeholder Learning Platform on Land Governance and Food Security was organized in Ifakara, Tanzania1. The Learning Platform creates space for dialogue and learning around land-based investments in agriculture and forestry in the Kilombero Valley in Tanzania.
The main question addressed during the two-day meeting was how to better align land-based investments with local development priorities.

This blogpost shares some highlights from this process and presents an agenda for action.
