Indigenous peoples and local communities protect more than 50% of world's land surface, but have formally recognised ownership to just over 10%.
What we do
making indigenous and community lands visible
LandMark - The Global Platform of Indigenous and Community Lands - is the first online, interactive global platform to provide maps and other critical information on lands that are collectively held and used by indigenous peoples and local communities. The global platform is designed to help indigenous peoples and communities protect their land rights and secure tenure over their lands.
LandMark displays georeferenced information on collectively-held and used lands worldwide. It provides several categories of data to show the land tenure situation for Indigenous Peoples and communities, as well as potential pressures on their lands, changes in land cover over time, and their contributions to protecting the environment.
As of today, indigenous and community land maps on LandMark cover 12.4% of the world’s land, out of an estimated 50% or more that is held by Indigenous Peoples and communities globally.
