Prindex - Perceptions of tenure security

Prindex (PRINDEX)

PRIndex, the Global Property Rights Index, is a collaborative initiative between Global Land Alliance and the Overseas Development Institute (with staff from both organisations working on the project alongside expert consultants), that aims to develop and roll out the first global measurement of peoples’ perceptions of their property rights.

The Land Portal is a Foundation registered in the Netherlands in 2014.

The vision of the Portal is to improve land governance to benefit those with the most insecure land rights and the greatest vulnerability to landlessness through information and knowledge sharing.

Land and property rights are an essential to building just and equitable societies. Yet Prindex data shows that more than 1 in 4 people living in the Middle East and North Africa fear for these rights – a higher proportion than anywhere else in the world.

Drawing on expert knowledge, regional experience, and the latest data, the event examined where insecurity is highest, who is most likely to feel insecure, and why. Crucially, it is a chance to discuss what needs to be done to drive change.
