FIG Commission 7 Annual Meeting and Seminar on Land Redistribution in Southern Africa - Picture Gallery

Pretoria, South Africa, November 4-9 2002

FIG Commission 7 organised its annual meeting and a two day-Symposium November 6-7, 2002 on the 'how to do' question of land re-distribution in Southern Africa. The target group for this Symposium were land managers, land surveyors and related professions. The aim was to focus on the operational and technical aspects of the land re-distribution process. This question has been raised amongst others at the FIG Washington congress by land surveyors from the region (April, 2002) and also at the World Bank Workshop on Land Issues in Kampala (April/May, 2002).

The Symposium was supported by FAO and included contributions from representatives of the World Bank, FAO and many senior academics, bureaucrats and practitioners.
