“We have found Land Portal website extremely useful to keep ourselves updated on land related developments across the globe. Resources and data set made available by Land Portal help us immensely in teaching academic courses on land, especially to examine from a global perspective some of the local and national issues in the land sector. Discussions around topics such as land and corruption have been found to be useful for our other courses on governance and development as well. I often advise students and young researchers who approach me for research ideas on land-related topics to visit Land Portal for leads and data.”
