as part of a panel on “Large Investments – Protecting Human Rights & the Environment” at the World Bank’s Annual Land and Poverty Conference (Washington, 25-29 March 2019). The presentation and accompanying paper raised awareness about UNIDROIT’s work in the area of private law and agricultural development, in particular the future Legal Guide and how its guidance could contribute to the protection of human rights and the environment. Both also drew attention to the upcoming online consultations for the Guide, which will begin in April 2019 when a draft of the Guide is posted to UNIDROIT’s website for review and submission of comments by stakeholders.
