LAND

Man is the master of his land. We will talk about the core priorities and benefits of launching the land market during the next All-Ukrainian Forum "Ukraine 30. Land" that will go through May 24-26, 2021.

How should agribusiness change today to become more competitive tomorrow? One of the main issues of the Forum is how the launch of the land market can be beneficial to farmers ― people working in the fields. We will discuss how the market will help meet farmers' expectations regarding land irrigation, agricultural insurance, and lending programs. We will also discuss what instruments the state can offer to support agrarians, among which there are already implemented practices like state aid and counteraction to raiding.

How can communities plan their development and manage territories in the new market environment?

Another important topic of the Forum is the discussion of the new public land management system.

We will also highlight the issue of digitalization of land relations, topographic, geodetic and cartographic support for the land reform, and the possibility of using satellite data in the agricultural sector. We will look at the successful cases of implementing innovative approaches in specific farms.

To reinforce the discussion of technological issues, we will present the possibilities of the national infrastructure of geospatial data, land management and cartography, as well as a new tool for communities ― geoportals.

The President of Ukraine, representatives of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the Verkhovna Rada, will participate in the Forum "Ukraine 30. Land". Foreign experts, representatives of diplomatic missions, and international organizations will share their experience on how other countries managed to implement the concept of the free land market and how it contributed to state development.

Join the Forum "Ukraine 30. Land.” Watch the live broadcast of the Forum on Youtube, comment and share participants’ speeches, and subscribe to our Facebook page.
