  10. 10. Today, geographic technology data and analysis are being applied to build a new understanding about creating the foundation for a sustainable society and economic growth. This understanding presents solutions to challenges such as recognizing the legal land rights of the poor, upgrading slums, making agriculture sustainable, and managing water.<br />
  11. 11. Dirt Poor: Seeking solutions to poverty from the ground up<br />This session highlights on-the-ground success stories from the CGIAR and its partners on land-based improvements in the well-being of the poor farm households as well as in the quality of the natural resources on which future rural livelihoods depend. A common feature of these successes is the growing reliance on geo-referenced information and location-specific analysis to improve the targeting, design, implementation, and evaluation of appropriate interventions. The presentations will showcase how improved insights into the spatial and socioeconomic contexts of land-related constraints and opportunities can help create solutions to poverty.<br />
