Abstract

This paper provides a status report on the development of the GLII land indicators, including the latest listing and formulations of proposed indicators, key elements for disaggregation, and broad considerations on data sources and methodologies for data collection and assessment. It is made available for consideration by GLII participants, partners and stakeholder organizations, together with a series of working papers on the GLII Conceptual Framework, and Operationalizing the GLII indicator framework a Sourcebook and a Curriculum for prepared by a team managed by the Natural Resources Institute (NRI, University of Greenwich). The proposed indicators and continuing development of the GLII indicator framework are informed by discussions with a GLII Data and Statistics Reference Group, convened by GLTN to assist in refining the full list of indicators indicator and defining the data sources and methods. This group has discussed extensively the latest formulations, disaggregation, data sources and methodology of draft land indicators, in relation to the formulations of land indicators proposed for and now adopted for the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UNSDSN) and United Nations Statistics Commission (UNSC). These discussions, resulted in a number of proposed revisions to the indicators as formulated by the GLII Working Group in The Hague in October 2014, and accepted by a GLII EGM held in Addis Ababa the following month. At the time of writing the priorities were for GLII is to finalise the indicator framework based on the share principles and priorities of GLII participants and the organizations represented, to define relevant data sources and to propose feasible and robust methodologies for measurement and reporting, linked to existing relevant initiatives. Now that GLII indicators 1 and 2 have been incorporated into the SDG indicator framework, those ongoing activities remain essential for operationalizing the GLII indicator framework and enabling the collaboration of national statistical organizations in land monitoring.
