The webinar “Accelerated Digitalisation: The impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the Land Administration sector” to be held on Monday, 22 March 2021 from 10:00 - 11:30 CET. The event will explore the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the application of new electronic and digital services in land administration. The webinar is jointly co-organized by the UNECE Working Party on Land Administration and The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

Case studies will be presented by the UK, the Russian Federation and Croatia, followed by a complementary intervention from Bosnia and Herzegovina and a panel discussion. We invite experts in Land Administration and Management to join this webinar to explore what the benefits and opportunities are, if there have been any unintended consequences as a result of accelerated or unplanned digitalisation, how challenges have been overcome and what the longer-term implications might be.

This is the first webinar of a series of joint WPLA – FAO webinars on “Land Administration during the COVID-19 pandemic”. Conclusions, outcomes and learning from these exchanges will be presented at the twelfth Session of the UNECE Working Party on Land Administration on 31 May and 1 June 2021.
