Announcing the conference, Local Government and Rural Development Minister, Garry Nkombo, said the conference would enhance government policy reforms on land administration in Zambia.

Nkombo acknowledged that the theme aligns well with the objectives of his ministry.

He noted that the conference would host delegates from Zambia and the Southern African region to discuss critical issues in land administration.

“This conference could not come at a better time than this when the government is working tirelessly to bring sanity to the way land is administered and managed in this country.

“The mammoth task of bringing stakeholders together in this manner is commendable, as the country stands to benefit from the discussions at this conference,” he said.

The Minister announced that representatives from local authorities and traditional leadership across Zambia would also attend the national land conference.

The Zambia Institute of Estate Agents, a statutory body established by an act of parliament, in collaboration with the Ministry of Local Government, Ministry of Lands, JICA, and the Copperbelt University (CBU), will be hosting the inaugural National Land Conference.

The target group of participants includes experts and practitioners in land management from industry, government, academia, research institutions, regulatory authorities, and professional bodies.

The conference will feature local and international speakers from academia, cooperating partners, and industry, providing excellent opportunities for learning, sharing experiences, collaboration, and networking.
