Abstract

This paper presents the Conceptual Framework for the Development of Global Land Indicators. It was compiled for the Global Land Indicators Initiative (GLII) as part of the technical assistance that the Natural Resources Institute at the University of Greenwich provided to GLTN / UN-Habitat in the GLII process from January to May 2015. Its purpose is to assist agreement on a set of commonly agreed global land indicators intended to monitor key aspects of land governance and land tenure security, so that all concerned stakeholders can contribute to a common monitoring effort at global, country, project and local levels. It includes clarification of the meanings of key land tenure terms and concepts, discussion of purposes and objectives of land monitoring, analysis of feasibility issues and a theory of change of how land monitoring to support improved tenure security and land governance improvements can support development goals. Since the conceptual framework and an associated list of indicators was continuing discussions have focussed on incorporation of headline indicators proposed to measure land tenure security into the framework of indicators for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which resulted in acceptance of GLII’s proposed indicators of tenure security at Indicator 1.4.2 in the SDG framework under Goal 1, Ending Poverty. Various elements of this conceptual framework that are pertinent to GLII’s mission and mandate of making global land monitoring a reality will necessarily be subject to further development by GLII participating experts and organisations.
