Research Tools: The Land Portal Foundation Launches the Largest Global Database of Land and Property Rights Projects
…the Land Portal Foundation is launching an all new database of land and property rights projects. The Land Portal team has been hard at work on this new endeavour for many months, which has come directly from the feedback of our users, who felt we could do better at giving a comprehensive overview of: what our colleagues are doing, where they are working, whom they are working with and where they could possibly use support.
We’ve responded to this demand by creating and curating the biggest land project database to date. Our aim is to help anybody from practitioners, researchers and donors alike to easily search for types of projects, to track funding and who is funding what and to use this information to seek out fruitful collaboration. Information includes details such as the duration of the project, the project value as well as the status of the project.
we have imported over 900 projects from the Global Map of Donors and USAID Land Tenure Projects. All information has been enriched with metadata, according to the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) Standard. This leads these projects to comply with appropriate classification systems and ultimately, to be more discoverable on the web and gain more visibility.
