Land and Poverty Conference 2020 Postponed due to Coronavirus - 03/03/2020


The international situation with the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) has been developing rapidly over the past days, with numerous new cases raising significant concerns at a global level. To ensure the health and safety of all of us and those around us, the World Bank has decided to cancel/postpone all major events and conferences until further notice. This means that the 2020 Land and Poverty Conference will not be held on 16-20 March.

The organizing committee is currently exploring whether it is an option to hold the conference later in the year instead. It will share further information before the end of this week on a possible alternative date, as well as the modalities for registered participants on getting conference fees refunded in case of cancellation.
