When disasters displace people, land records and geospatial data are key to protecting property rights and building resilience.When land conflicts occur, it is clear that conciliation efforts would benefit from access to data and evidence. In order for marginalized peoples and communities to gain control of their rights, there is no doubt that data, information and knowledge are indispensable. At the Land Portal, we carry out a variety of collaborative initiatives and partnerships to make the existing data and information ecosystem on land more democratic and inclusive by promoting open data principles and best practices. In other words, we want all land related information and data to reach as many people as possible so that it may eventually get into the hands and minds of those who are in a position to implement change.
