This free e-learning course shows how to gather data for Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicator 1.4.2, which monitors security of land tenure rights.
The course is aimed at officers of national statistics organizations, land registries among others, responsible for collecting and reporting official national data on land tenure security, as well as other stakeholders involved in monitoring of land governance and tenure security.
Indicator 1.4.2 is a component of SDG target 1.4, which aims to ensure that all have equal rights to economic resources, including land and other forms of property. This is in turn part of SDG 1, “End poverty in all its forms everywhere”.
The e-learning course is a self-paced training module that is expected to take about 30 minutes. It covers the indicator’s rationale, concepts and definitions, the approved methodology for data collection, and tools for data collection, computation and reporting on the indicator.
UN-Habitat and the World Bank, the co-custodian agencies for SDG indicator 1.4.2 provide in-country capacity strengthening for methodological adoption and data collection, and facilitate data reporting from country level to the United Nations Statistics Division(UNSD)
The Global Land Tool Network (GLTN), the Global Land Indicators Initiative (GLII) and UN-Habitat invite all stakeholders in land governance and tenure security monitoring to take this course.
The course is available via the UN-Habitat learning portal. This also offers other free SDG-related courses, including on SDG 11 (sustainable cities and communities).
