Land Portal Foundation | Land Portal | Securing Land Rights Through Open Data

The Land Portal Foundation is a public benefit organization (ANBI) registered in the Netherlands (RSIN# 854330045), established on 8 September 2014.

Our areas of focus:

  • Improving knowledge, communication and dialogue around land rights and land governance worldwide, with a particular emphasis on those most at-risk due to insecure land rights and great vulnerability to landlessness;
  • Creating and maintaining a system, known as "The Land Portal", that facilitates the collection, sourcing, and searching of otherwise fragmented and inaccessible data and information on land governance and land use from diverse sources, produced by governments, academia, international organizations, indigenous peoples and non-governmental organizations;
  • Encouraging social information exchange, debate and networking;
  • Establishing and maintaining a web-based data system that builds its strong foundations as the online destination for land information by combining public data, published information, and first-hand knowledge.
