The discussion aims at pointing out the importance and the challenges of a sound and effective state-land management (in the agricultural sphere) in the light of environmental, economic and social drivers. Well-known experts in this field will identify and discuss instruments and methods suitable for dealing with these challenges. Case studies from Mongolia, Lithuania, Ukraine and Eastern Germany are to be presented. Amongst others Harald Finkelmeyer is to introduce the GTZ project Land Management in Mongolia and Katja Dells, from BVVG, will on the one hand shed a light on the privatisation process of state-owned agricultural land in Eastern Germany and on the other hand speak about the management of the remaining state-owned agricultural land.
