On March 14 – 18, leaders in land governance from around the world gathered in Washington D.C. for the annual World Bank Land and Poverty Conference to discuss the future of land administration, evaluate emerging technologies and share research. Thomson Reuters joined the conversation to present new mobile mapping technology and research—all contributing toward our goal of providing answers to the land sector’s most challenging questions.
Check out Thomson Reuters’ featured content from this year’s World Bank Land and Poverty Conference:

Three land sector leaders address this question by examining three conclusions from a recent Land Alliance report.
