How to Report On SDG Land Targets in 2021: Introductory Session for Government Partners | Land Portal

About Landesa

Landesa partners with governments and local organizations to ensure that the world’s poorest families have secure rights over the land they till. Founded as the Rural Development Institute, Landesa has helped more than 105 million poor families gain legal control over their land since 1967. When families have secure rights to land, they can invest in their land to sustainably increase their harvests and reap the benefits—improved nutrition, health, and education—for generations.

Language of the event: 

All the UN member states have committed to achieve the Sustainable Development Targets by 2030. However, there is a clear gap between what is being committed and the delivery of the commitments. For example, in 2020 National Voluntary Reports only seven countries reported on specific land targets. No country reported on the all three key land targets. The gap prevails based on many reasons ranging from lack of political will to resources including technical capacity.

In 2020, the SDG Land Momentum Group, consisting of CSOs and UN agencies, developed a methodology to assist governments and CSOs to report on key land targets of the SDGs. This introductory webinar will introduce this methodology to members of government/public officials who are interested in learning how to report covering which data to use. The introductory webinar will be followed by a technical training in December for those who are interested in reporting in 2021.
