Land Governance for Equitable and Sustainable Development
Risk assessment in relation to land
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.
