Developed in collaboration with members and strategic partners of the International Land Coalition (ILC), LANDex seeks to democratize the process by which data on land is generated, shared and used, with a focus on those populations and communities often absent from official statistics.

The monitoring tool is built on 33 common indicators that reflect the wide-ranging priorities of Coalition members: from tenure security to women's land rights, recognition of indigenous land and the protection of land defenders.

Using open, standardized and accessible methods of data collection, LANDex tracks progress towards people-centered land governance while generating local, national and regional data that can be compared over time on a global scale.
