ONLINE RESOURCE: Land Portal: The gateway to land information
The Land Portal, an online platform to find, share, and collaborate on land information, was launched this week at the annual World Bank Conference on Land and Poverty. Created by the International Land Coalition (ILC) and Landtenure.info, the Land Portal aims to improve transparency, land rights monitoring, and the identification of information gaps for better land governance.
The Land Portal is the result of a broad partnership with more than 40 land-concerned organizations. The site is designed to provide information that is useful to a variety of players working in or contributing to economic and social development, including government institutions, civil society leaders, multilateral organizations, social entrepreneurs, philanthropists, academic and research organizations, and media.
