Land Indicator – UN Sustainable Development Goals

We all love and proud to be respected big landlords? But why to not own more? Land Indicator is colloquially referred to in the land rights community – measures 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.” It is just one of 240+ indicators that were proposed to monitor the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Tenure security indicator is considered by the land community, including policy-makers, development professionals and donors as a crucial indicator for tracking progress on tenure security issues for all, with legally documented and perceived tenure rights.

Few sample household survey questions can measure both the presence of legally recognized land documentation, and peoples’ perceptions of their land tenure security:

How likely are you to lose your land / property or use right in the next 5 years?
Do you have the right to exclusively or jointly bequeath your land / property?
Do you have property/ tenure rights over this land / property or another property? If so, what type of rights?
Do you have documentation of the tenure / property rights on this property and / or another property?
What is the type of documentation over the land / property?
Whose name is on the document and can you show the document?

These core questions followed by additional clarification questions, in case of a positive or negative answer.
