The momentum is increasing around international land monitoring initiatives, together with an unprecedented demand for free, accessible, and usable land data and information. The land sector must find ways to seize opportunities presented by open data innovations while negotiating a rapidly changing data environment. 

The Land Portal and Open Data Charter have been working with the Government of Senegal to open up land data, following the guidance set forth in the Open Up Guide for Land Governance. The Open Up Guide is a practical guide for governments who are seeking to better collect, publish, and use land data for the public good. As Phase 1 of this project, the team has published the State of Land Information in Senegal (SOLI) Report. SOLI reports are research-driven analyses of the current state of land data that assess the available land information against open data standards. 

 

The webinar will:

  • Share latest results from the Open Up Guide implementation pilot in Senegal and findings from the SOLI Senegal report 

  • Ask and discuss questions concerning the interest in and maturity of open data in Senegal as it relates to land 

  • Hear perspectives from the government of Senegal (ANAT, PROCASEF), donors (GIZ, World Bank), local community members, using specific case studies on data and land initiatives

Land Tenure Security Revisited

Global

Strengthening security of tenure is considered a key outcome of the LAND-at-scale program as a pre-condition to improved livelihoods, resilience, and sustainable resource use. LAND-at-scale interventions employ a range of tools to achieve tenure security, in particular land mapping and registration. Despite the popularity of such interventions, the assumptions underpinning the impact pathways from registration to tenure security and derived outcomes such as improved livelihoods are not always built on a solid evidence base.

Aumenta el impulso en torno a las iniciativas internacionales de monitoreo de la tierra, junto con una demanda sin precedentes de datos e información sobre la tierra gratuitos, accesibles y utilizables. El sector de la tierra debe encontrar la manera de aprovechar las oportunidades que ofrecen las innovaciones en materia de datos abiertos, negociando al mismo tiempo un entorno de datos en rápida evolución. 

El Land Portal y la Carta de Datos Abiertos han estado trabajando con el Gobierno de Senegal para abrir los datos sobre la tierra, siguiendo las orientaciones establecidas en la Guía Open Up para la Gobernanza de la Tierra. La Guía Open Up es una guía práctica para los gobiernos que desean recopilar, publicar y utilizar mejor los datos sobre la tierra para el bien público. Como Fase 1 de este proyecto, el equipo ha publicado el Informe sobre el Estado de la Información de la Tierra en Senegal (SOLI por sus siglas en inglés). Los informes SOLI son análisis basados en la investigación del estado actual de los datos sobre la tierra que evalúan la información disponible sobre la tierra en relación con las normas de datos abiertos. 

En el seminario web:

  • Se compartirán los últimos resultados del proyecto piloto de aplicación de la Guía Open Up en Senegal y las conclusiones del informe SOLI Senegal. 
  • Se plantearán y debatirán preguntas sobre el interés y la madurez de los datos abiertos en Senegal en relación con la tierra. 
  • Escuchar las perspectivas del gobierno de Senegal (ANAT, PROCASEF), los donantes (GIZ, Banco Mundial), los miembros de la comunidad local, utilizando estudios de casos específicos sobre los datos y las iniciativas de la tierra
