Property rights are a cornerstone of economic development and social justice, and data on perceptions of security of property rights are required to monitor global initiatives such as the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Forests and Fisheries and the Sustainable Development Goals. Yet, perceptions of security of tenure have never been assessed at the global level, preventing a clear understanding of the magnitude and nature of citizens' experience of security and insecurity related to crucial assets such as housing and land.

Around the world, insecure property rights prevent families from feeling confident about the future, businesses from investing, and communities from becoming more productive. Hundreds of millions of us lack property security. This makes the world poorer, less free, and less just.

There is a growing recognition of the need for change, but without accurate information, governments, business and civil society can’t understand the nature of the challenge or how to overcome it.

Prindex collects data from around the world on how citizens perceive the security of their rights to land and property. The aim is to inform and enable changes in land and property policy that will make countries more productive and secure places to live.

This webinar gives a basic understanding of how Prindex works. The Prindex team presens results from data collected from 15 countries. It focuses on pathways for using Prindex to propel policy conversations and movement-building for policy reform with the help of panellists from some of the countries.
