New dashboard on Land and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)!

Dear Colleagues,

Today, the Land Portal Foundation launches an exciting new dashboard focused on Land and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) together with the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) in an effort to make information related to the land indicators in the SDGs widely available.

We would appreciate your support in promoting this dashboard. This dashboard addresses an important information gap and will help practitioners, policy makers and the land community as a whole to keep track of the progress towards achieving land-related SDGs. This dashboard will also help us to work together to secure re-classification of indicators by the United Nation’s Inter-agency and Expert Group on SDG Indicators (IAEG-SDGs), which will review progress made in the development of Tier 3 indicators, including indicator 1.4.2 for measuring tenure security including perception, and indicator 5.a.2 on countries’ legal provisions that secure women’s land rights among others, from November 11-14 in Manama, Bahrain.
