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.
