The Global Land Indicators Initiative is a collaborative and inclusive process for the development of the Global Land Indicators started by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), UN-Habitat and the World Bank (WB), facilitated by GLTN. This initiative has now grown to include over 30 institutions around the world ranging from UN Agencies, Inter-governmental Organizations, International Nongovernmental Organizations, Farmer Organizations and the Academia.

The Global Land Indicators Initiative (GLII) was established in 2012 with the aim to harmonize monitoring efforts around land tenure and governance. GLII seeks to derive a list of comparable and harmonized land indicators. To achieve this, GLII is exploring the range of monitoring mechanisms and data collection methods. The Initiative is supporting global and regional frameworks such as the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance on Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests (VGGTs), agreed by 193 Member States and supported by civil society on the one hand, and the Framework and Guidelines (F&G) on land policy in Africa, a joint initiative of the African Union Commission, the African Development Bank and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa on the other. GLII intends to foster partnership, inclusiveness, consultation, evidence-based indicators, people-centered approach and sustainability.
