 Land-at-scale Newsletter Q4 2021 – January 2022 Online Version
Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland
Dear colleagues,

We want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year! While we look forward to the many exciting things that lie ahead of us in 2022, we want to use this newsletter to look back on 2021 and reflect on the progress we have made.

We are very pleased that almost all 14 country projects officially kicked off last year. Partnership and collaboration are important cornerstones of the LAND-at-scale programme. This is reflected by the wide range of project partners LAND-at-scale is working with, ranging from government institutions, NGOs, research institutions to Dutch embassies. We look forward to working together with all of them.

It is important that LAND-at-scale contributes and adds value to ongoing processes, rather than reinventing the wheel or working in isolation. As co-chair of the Global Donor Working Group on Land, our aim is to strengthen and intensify our connections to all land stakeholders. And now that most LAND-at-scale country projects are up and running, we look forward to sharing and exchanging our experiences with the wider community. Hopefully, this year, we will be able to exchange with you all more in person.

If you have any questions or remarks about LAND-at-scale, please do not hesitate to reach out to us through landatscale@rvo.nl.

Warm regards,

The LAND-at-scale team
