EGM: Using administrative data to monitor SDG land indicator

UN Habitat and the World Bank as co-custodians of SDG indicator 1.4.2, The Global Land Indicators Initiative (GLII), IPRA-CINDER and the University Pompeo Fabra (UPF) are meeting on the Expert Group Meeting (EGM) on methodology development to monitor SDG indicator 1.4.2: Proportion of total adult population with secure tenure rights to land, with legally recognized documentation and who perceive their rights to land as secure, by sex and by type of tenure.
The inclusion of land indicators in the SDGs reflects the global recognition of the importance of land rights and tenure security in meeting the sustainable development goals by 2030. The Inter-Agency Expert Group on SDGs has classified this land indicator as “Tier III”, because the methodology for regular data collection is to be developed and aim for this EGM. The focus of the meeting is on the indicator component “legally recognized documentation” which will be measured using administrative data produced by the land agencies (and compared with survey findings were relevant). The other component of the indicator (perception of tenure security) will be measured using household survey data, for which an EGM was recently concluded.
The aims of this EGM are: (i) to take stock of existing efforts for compiling and monitoring administrative data based on land records and area mapped – in a gender disaggregated way- and its contribution to strengthening security of tenure; (ii) develop a universally applicable methodology for collecting administrative data that is consistent and comparable across countries (iii) identify mechanisms enabling a maximum number of countries to report on a routine basis data on legally recognized documentation for land and property, and (iv) propose mechanisms for reporting administrative data at the country and regional level as input into land policy decision making.
