Through July 14th, the Land Portal Foundation, GLTN/GLII, Land Alliance and LandAC, are holding a dialogue focused on measuring the perceptions of land tenure security in the context of the Sustainable Development Goal Indicator 1.4.2.
The land tenure and property rights community has worked tirelessly to contribute to several of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a major focus on Goal #1—to end poverty in all its forms everywhere. Indicator 1.4.2. aims to monitor the 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 Inter-Agency Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goal Indicators (IAEG-SDGs) has classified indicator 1.4.2 under Tier III, which means that methodologies for gathering the data are still being developed. To be certain that Indicator 1.4.2 is retained, it needs to be elevated to Tier II status, which means the indicator is conceptually clear, has an internationally established methodology and standards are available.
This dialogue aims to increase the level of awareness among land sector stakeholders on the efforts to measure tenure security and invites feedback and inputs from a diversity of stakeholders from around the world on Indicator 1.4.2.
Participants are asked to respond to the following questions:
- What data is needed to measure tenure security for all? What is available, and what are the plans for collecting the required datasets?
- How do we understand the perception of tenure security?
- What gender and other group dynamics that need to be considered in collecting, analyzing and reporting on perceptions and legal documentation?
- What are some of the best practices we have on how perception data has been collected and disseminated? (Existing or developing), challenges and opportunities.

The dialogue will take place on the Land Portal in from June 20 – July 14, 2017.
