Framework for Evaluating Continuum of Land Rights ScenariosThis report presents a framework for evaluating land tenure in continuum of land rights scenarios. A significant portion of land interests around the world are not recorded, leaving a large number of people vulnerable to land grabbing by the state and other powerful interests. The continuum is gaining traction globally as a metaphor to guide policies and strategies to improve equity in land tenure and land transactions. Evaluation is fundamental to human nature. It is important that decisions about land policy, law and administration should be based on studies that are grounded in sound methodology and stand up to thorough critical examination. Evaluations should be used according to the purposes for which they were intended and applied with an understanding of their limitations.

pdf.png A Review of the Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM) Phase II: Summary Report (Eng - 2014) HOT

(0 votes)

Download

Many land rights and land claims are based on social tenures and cannot be described in terms of conventional, parcel-based concepts. New forms of spatial units have therefore been needed for some time, and the Global Land Tools Network (GLTN) developed a model to accommodate these social tenures. It is called the Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM).

 

Since its inception, the STDM has been developed and piloted, and it is now being implemented to cater for the range of land rights that exist, including rights that are documented or undocumented, rights for individuals and groups, for pastoralists and slums dwellers; rights that are formal and informal, and those that are legal as well as extra-legal.

 

Within the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), the STDM is seen, and is thus reviewed as, a pro-poor, participatory and affordable land tool.

Costing and Financing of Land Administration Services (CoFLAS) in Developing CountriesThe GLTN partners have identified and agreed upon 18 key land tools that are deemed necessary to address poverty and land issues at country level. The Costing and Financing of Land Administration Services (CoFLAS) is one of these tools, originally referred to as ‘modernising the land agencies budgetary approach’. This document sets out the development and initial formulation of CoFLAS, providing a decision-support tool and methodology across the process of costing and financing of land administration services (LAS) in developing countries. The underlying assumption of the tool is that without modernizing the way services are provided in land offices and making them effective, cost efficient, affordable and sustainable, developing countries will find it difficult to ensure secure access to land and property to all including the poor and the vulnerable.

pdf.png A Post-Conflict Land Administration and Peacebuilding Handbook (Eng - 2007) HOT

Throughout history, conflicts have been waged over land. Confrontations over territory, border disputes, the illegal occupation of the territory of one state by another or grievances stemming from inequitable access to land resources invariably have had dramatic consequences for human settlements. Never before has this been truer than with today’s very different types of conflict which tend to take place within nations rather than between them. While the humanitarian response of the international community to internal conflict is constantly improving, the question still remains of what we can do to help the victims to restore their homes and livelihoods.

The answer lies in large part in sustainable human settlements planning and management. But, the rapid restoration of homes and livelihoods so that normal peacetime processes of sustainable planning and management can operate is complex and difficult to achieve. In particular, it requires that humanitarian relief operations be conceived from the very start as a bridge to development.

The Report of the High-Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda

We, the High-Level Panel on the post-2015 Development Agenda, were asked for recommendations that would "help respond to the global challenges of the 21st century, building on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and with a view to ending poverty".

 

We discussed two of the world's biggest challenges – how to end poverty and how to promote sustainable development. We have not come up with all the answers, but we do believe the lives of billions of people can be improved, in a way that preserves the planet's natural resource assets for future generations.

 

Progress on this scale is possible, but only if governments (at all levels), multilateral institutions, businesses, and civil society organizations are willing to change course and reject business-as-usual. They have a chance to develop and put in place a new agenda: one that confronts the challenges of the modern world head-on. They have an opportunity to transform their thinking, and their practice, to solve current problems with new ways of working. They can join forces, tackle poverty, the economy and the environment together, and bring about a paradigm shift.

The global Land Indicators Initiative is a collaborative and inclusive process for the development of the Global Land Indicators started by the Millenium 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.


In 2012, the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) took the initiative to organize an Expert Group Meeting for the development of annually reported global land indicators. The EGM met in April 2013, November 2013 and March 2014. The EGM participants are developing a list of 8-10 land indicators that will complement the Post-2015 development agenda as well as contribute to monitoring the UNFAO Voluntary Guidelines on Responsible Governance on Tenure of Land, Forests and Fisheries and the African Union Land Policy Initiative/Framework and Guidelines on Land Policy in Africa.
