GLII Working Paper No. 4
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
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.
