This workshop from the Land Portal Foundation might be of interest. Details below.

Best wishes,



The Land Portal Foundation would like invite you to a workshop "Putting Data Into Action: Shaping an Open Up Guide on Land Governance". The workshop will take place in Washington DC on Monday March 16th (from 9AM - 3PM) and is organized together with the Open Government Partnership<https://www.opengovpartnership.org/> and the Open Data Charter<https://opendatacharter.net/>, hosted at the OpenGov Hub<https://goo.gl/maps/PNRyBj5GqHMnnx3P8>.

This workshop provides a unique opportunity to ensure that land data is included in an important international data process: the Open Up Guides<https://open-data-charter.gitbook.io/open-up-guide-using-open-data-to-combat-corruption/> developed by Open Data Charter. These guides have very successfully helped governments, civil society and other stakeholders work together to make data open and usable, setting priorities, identifying the standards to use, and linking data with action. Such an open up guide for land could catalyze the SDGs process and harmonize ongoing data efforts globally by bringing in an even wider range of stakeholders. We feel the perspectives of the members of this working group will be very valuable for our discussions.

Please find more information on our website<https://landportal.org/event/2020/02/putting-data-action-shaping-open-guide-land-governance>, including details on how to sign up. And please note also that we are unable to provide travel support. Those of you already in Washington DC or travelling there for the World Bank Conference on Land & Poverty (or for any other reason), are most welcome to join us.
