The Dashboard launches in Senegal and piloted by IPAR

Land governance is an important part of natural resource management. Senegal has recently adopted a land policy, which opens up prospects for a long-promised, but long-delayed, land reform. One suggestion is that land indicator monitoring facilitates consensus building, thus contributing to the promotion of peace.
Last month, ILC members the Global Land Tool Network and World Bank along with UN-Habitat, the Arab League and the Arab Union of Surveyors held the first Arab Land Conference in Dubai with the objective of "exchanging knowledge, promoting regional cooperation and developing capacities and innovation in land governance and real estate reforms to promote the social and economic development in the Arab region."
In India, land reform is currently a forgotten agenda. Immediately after India’s independence, the Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru promised to eliminate the intermediaries and restore land to the tiller resulting in the passing of historic Zamindari Abolition Act in 1956. Yet unfortunately, land has never became the core agenda of the successive governments despite various revolutionary steps through social movements.
