The Land Portal Foundation, the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network’s Thematic Network on Good Governance of Extractive and Land Resources and the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) will co-host an interactive webinar to discuss land-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and progress on implementation. Expert panelists will share updates about their work to monitor SDG implementation, including the status of indicator 1.4.2, which aims to measure progress on secure tenure rights for all. The webinar will also serve as an opportunity to coordinate stakeholder efforts on advocacy around indicator 1.4.2 and other priorities in the lead-up to the Inter-Agency Expert Group on the SDGs (IAEG-SDGs) meeting in October 2017. Following brief presentations, expert panelists will respond to participant questions and engage in discussion with stakeholders about the forward-looking agenda for measuring progress on implementation of land-related SDGs.

The first part of the indicator focuses on the incidence of people with ownership of secure rights over land, while the second part focuses on the gender parity and the extent to which women are disadvantaged in terms of ownership or use rights over agricultural land.
The focus of this indicator is on agricultural land, which is commonly viewed as a critical resource for ensuring poverty reduction in many developing countries.
