NUA Brief PortoA Nova Agenda Urbana (NAU) trata de pessoas. As pessoas precisam de um lugar para viver com dignidade e isso significa ter acesso à terra. Terra para morar, para trabalhar, para desempenhar atividades comerciais, para lazer, transporte, entre outros. As altas taxas de crescimento demográfico da atualidade aumentam a pressão sobre a terra urbanizada, cada vez mais escassa. Estamos em um momento decisivo! O uso e o acesso à terra devem ser gerenciados com cautela e responsabilidade para aproveitar o potencial criativo da NAU, especialmente nos contextos de expansão urbana.

lbf trainersThe potential contribution of land based financing to the development of sustainable and equitable cities and properly serviced communities is often underestimated. Land based financing is a collective name given to a range of instruments by which local governments could expand their revenue base and generate funds that will help them to deliver services and infrastructure development and achieve their maintenance goals. These instruments can be used to improve public finance; equitably link public investments, private benefits and public revenues; and promote more sustainable patterns of urban development.

doc.png Final Draft: Guide to the Valuation of Unregistered Lands HOT

Invitation to contribute to the Guide on Valuation of Unregistered Lands:

GLTN invites you to contribute your expertise to the Guide on Valuation of Unregistered Lands. The guidebook was originally meant to be a manual for valuers, but its purpose was changed during the period of its development to also serve as an accessible document for policymakers.

The several reasons for adoption of this change include sensitizing policymakers that some bureaucrats believe valuation to be just a technical exercise. While valuation does have technical requirements, professional level expertise is required to read markets and consequently determine market values. Such misunderstandings of the very nature of markets, market value and market valuations can be particularly damaging when it comes to the assessment of values to be included as compensation for compulsory acquisition, and this guide therefore emphasizes that context. However, many points raised therein apply to valuations in general.

The structure of the guide is spread across eight chapters. The introduction is about the global roles of land valuation and unregistered lands, and how this guide fits into the contexts provided by other relevant policy-related documents. The second chapter addresses the purpose and need for the guide, and the third addresses the core purpose: How to determine the market value of interests in unregistered land in cases of government expropriation. The fourth chapter drills down into the market value of informal rights while the fifth addresses likely barriers and challenges to be met. The sixth chapter recommends best practices in such contexts, and the seventh addresses the valuation of different types of unregistered land. The eighth chapter addresses what makes a valuation of unregistered land fir for purpose. Finally, the Guide makes recommendations towards capacity building for fit-for-purpose valuation programs and adopting the fit-for-purpose valuation approach.

Turkana Report

This publication outlines the process undertaken by UN Habitat/GLTN and The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Representation in Kenya to support the Ministry of Lands, Physical Planning and Urban Areas Management of the Turkana County Government-Kenya, in establishing a county Land Information Management System based on the Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM). The project was carried out in the context of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) program entitled, Support for Responsible Land and Natural Resource Governance of Communal Lands in Kenya. A customized land information management system for Turkana County was developed, tested and rolled out according to the requirements of Ministry of Lands, Physical Planning and Urban Area Management and technical processes documented to guide staff in its implementation.

This publication also offers lessons learnt by the stakeholders during the course of implementation such as the role of effective partnerships, the importance of project ownership and capacity development among others as catalysts for sustaining development of land information systems like STDM. Through this project, FAO facilitated and carried out a pilot project aimed at testing Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure.

pdf.png PROPOSED GLOBAL LAND INDICATORS : STATUS REPORT ON GLII INDICATOR FORMULATION, DISAGGREGATION, DATA SOURCES AND METHODOLOGY

(0 votes)

Download

This document, compiled in October 2015, provides a status report on the development of the GLII land indicators, including the latest listing and formulations of proposed indicators, key elements for disaggregation, and broad considerations on data sources and methodologies for data collection and assessment. It is made available for consideration by GLII participants, partners and stakeholder organizations, together with a series of working papers on the GLII Conceptual Framework, and Operationalizing the GLII indicator framework a Sourcebook and a curriculum for prepared by a team managed by the Natural Resources Institute (NRI, University of Greenwich).

The proposed indicators and continuing development of the GLII indicator framework are informed by discussions with a GLII Data and Statistics Reference Group, convened by GLTN to assist in refining the full list of indicators indicator and defining the data sources and methods. This group has discussed extensively the latest formulations,  isaggregation, data sources and methodology of draft land indicators, in relation to the formulations of land indicators proposed for and now adopted for the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UNSDSN) and United Nations Statistics Commission (UNSC). These discussions, resulted in a number of proposed revisions to the indicators as formulated by the GLII Working Group in The Hague in October 2014, and accepted by a GLII EGM held in Addis Ababa the following month.

This document is a reflection of collective thinking
and open knowledge sharing among various experts
and representatives of institutions that are active in
the land sector. GLII, in consultation with the Natural
Resources Institute, constituted a Data and Statistics
Reference Group1 to finalize global land indicators,
data sources and methodologies. The document is the
result of analysis undertaken by NRI in consultation
with this group, which has played an important role
in refining indicator formulations, discussing feasibility,
prioritizing data sources, agreeing on disaggregation
possibilities, and scoping possibilities of linking up
with ongoing data collection and assessment initiatives
relevant to rural and urban areas. It is hoped that the
report demonstrates the potential for the GLII platform
to provide the necessary drive and acceleration for
the global land monitoring agenda. The sourcebook
proposes a harmonized and open framework for land
monitoring which can be used by existing /on-•

GLTN and the Natural Resources Institute at the University
of Greenwich are pleased to share this sourcebook, as
a working paper, to assist with the operationalisation
of GLII indicators at the country level. This sourcebook
provides material for developing a handbook for
implementing the land indicators at country level. The
aim of the sourcebook is to set out material for further
development, discussion and compilation into one or
more operational handbooks that provide guidance on
the steps required and approaches that can be applied
for national stakeholders and collaborating partners to
establish practical arrangements for data gathering,
analysis and reporting against a harmonised set of land
indicators. These indicators have been broadly agreed
amongst multilateral, governmental and civil society
agencies and with the GLII stakeholder platform, and
include headline indicators (including 1.4.2) now agreed
and incorporated in the framework for implementing
the globally agreed Sustainable Development Goals by
the UN Statistical Commission (UNSC).
The sourcebook presents 15 proposed global land
monitoring indicators, together with detailed
assessments of feasible data sources, methodologies
and approaches for data collection, assessment and
reporting.
The sourcebook can be of significance for the global
land and development community because the security
of land and property rights and effective systems for
land governance are widely recognized to be central
factors in achieving positive development outcomes
for inclusive economic growth, food security, poverty
reduction, sustainable natural resource management
and sustainable cities. Following consideration by GLTN
and the GLII Reference Group convened to review
proposed data sources and feasible statistical methods,
the sourcebook is published by GLTN as a Working
Paper. This is made available online for comment and
appreciation and subsequently for improving and

going initiatives at country, regional and global levels,
and to which they can contribute. The sourcebook
can therefore support GLII, its collaborating partners
and regional /country level initiatives in making land
monitoring at a global scale a reality in the foreseeable
future.
