Reference Guide for Risk Assessment in relation to land
As part of the LANDdialogue, APG initiated the development of a Reference Guide Risk Assessment Land 2017. The guide was commissioned by the Organizing Committee of the LANDdialogue and provides a useful tool that can help investors identify and monitor ESG risks, and gives an overview of available information on general land-related topics for specific sectors and regions, including land use legislation for a number of countries.
Investments in real estate, large scale infrastructure, farmland and timber assets are becoming increasingly popular among institutional investors. Investments involving land acquisition carry a unique set of social and environmental risks and require specialist expertise for successful due diligence.
On 6 March 2018, 15.00 – 16.00 hrs (GMT), PRI has hosted a Webinar to present and discuss the Guide. A recording of this online event can be found on the website of PRI: Webinar Planting the Seeds.
