Working towards these commitments
Secure Tenure Rights
Transparent and accessible information
The Land Portal Foundation believes access to information is crucial to achieve good land governance and to secure land rights for vulnerable people. We are creating the leading online resource for information, data and knowledge-exchange on land governance issues. By working with partners we are building a better information ecosystem that will support all stakeholders to engage in more informed and inclusive land governance research, debate, advocacy and policy making.
Land Portal's objectives are to improve documentation, mapping and monitoring of land governance issues through the provision of a widely used platform which includes structured information, tools and services promote, inform and enrich global debate and practice on key land issues while providing further awareness on selected thematic areas of central importance to land governance and raise awareness on Open Data principles, support the creation of a solid data infrastructure and build the capacities of information providers, in order to strengthen the flow of land governance information at all levels.
The Land Portal is a non-for-profit organization based in the Netherlands. Set up in 2009 as a partnership project dedicated to supporting the efforts of the rural poor to gain equitable access to land by addressing the fragmentation of information resources on land, in 2014, the Land Portal became an independent non-profit. Through a variety of initiatives and partnerships, the Land Portal works to create a better information ecosystem for land governance through a platform based on cutting-edge open data technologies.
