The second meeting of the Working Group on agricultural land investment contracts took place at UNIDROIT’s seat in Rome on 13-15 September 2017. The Working Group discussed recent developments and general considerations in relation to the work, in particular with respect to the future instrument’s scope, target audience and alignment with existing initiatives (e.g. the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the context of National Food Security and the Principles for Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Foods Systems); examined in detail the draft outline of the future instrument, proposed revisions to that outline and initial drafting contributions for certain chapters; and discussed the organisation of future work, including possible events and other means for raising awareness about the future instrument, consulting stakeholders and seeking their input.
