The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality”. The day aims to celebrate women and girls who are championing the advancement of transformative technology and digital education. It will also explore the impact of the digital gender gap on widening economic and social inequalities.
NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) opened a new open, online intermediate webinar series: Biodiversity Applications for Airborne Imaging Systems. This four-part webinar series will focus on NASA Earth Observations (EO) that can be used characterize the structure and function of ecosystems and to measure and monitor terrestrial and aquatic biodiversity.
This webinar discussed the implications of the Maledu judgment, the importance of recognizing and protecting informal land rights, the power of access to information and the positive outcomes tenure security can have for mining-affected communities. It will look at the impacts of the judgment for the community and explore how the community members have engaged with the mining company.
IATI will host its annual Members' Assembly and Community Exchange in-person in Copenhagen (UN City) between Monday 13 and Thursday 16 March 2023.
The webinar will: hear from donors about their experience and challenges in making grants more inclusive; give insights in measuring inclusiveness; and ask and discuss questions on how donors can use data-driven information to inform their decisions in financing land governance investments.
February 24th marks one year since the Russian invasion of Ukraine. In that time, the Ukrainian military has fought its way to considerable battlefield success and liberated significant territory near Kyiv and in the country’s east and south.
La sexta reunión mundial del Foro de los Pueblos Indígenas en el FIDA, a celebrarse los días 9, 10 y 13 de febrero de 2023, se centrará en el Liderazgo de los pueblos indígenas en las cuestiones del clima: soluciones basadas en las comunidades para mejorar la resiliencia y la biodiversidad.
The momentum is increasing around international land monitoring initiatives, together with an unprecedented demand for free, accessible, and usable land data and information. The land sector must find ways to seize opportunities presented by open data innovations while negotiating a rapidly changing data environment.
The Land Portal and Open Data Charter have been working with the Government of Senegal to open up land data, following the guidance set forth in the Open Up Guide for Land Governance. The Open Up Guide is a practical guide for governments who are seeking to better collect, publish, and use land data for the public good. As Phase 1 of this project, the team has published the State of Land Information in Senegal (SOLI) Report. SOLI reports are research-driven analyses of the current state of land data that assess the available land information against open data standards.
The webinar will:
Share latest results from the Open Up Guide implementation pilot in Senegal and findings from the SOLI Senegal report
Ask and discuss questions concerning the interest in and maturity of open data in Senegal as it relates to land
Hear perspectives from the government of Senegal (ANAT, PROCASEF), donors (GIZ, World Bank), local community members, using specific case studies on data and land initiatives
NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) has opened a new open, online introductory webinar series: Connecting Citizen Science with Remote Sensing. This 3-part training, delivered in English and Spanish, will provide attendees an overview of citizen science efforts that use Earth Observations combined with ground-based information in the fields of climate change, sustainable development, ecosystem monitoring and characterization, drought, and land cover or land-use change, and will highlight case-study examples of successful citizen science projects, with some examples from NASA supported projects and activities.
Strengthening security of tenure is considered a key outcome of the LAND-at-scale program as a pre-condition to improved livelihoods, resilience, and sustainable resource use. LAND-at-scale interventions employ a range of tools to achieve tenure security, in particular land mapping and registration. Despite the popularity of such interventions, the assumptions underpinning the impact pathways from registration to tenure security and derived outcomes such as improved livelihoods are not always built on a solid evidence base.
The theme of the sixth edition of ILDC in 2022 is “Global Pulls on Local Lands : Southern Perspectives”. The objective is to further and expand the scope of South-South Exchange around land conversations and cooperations, that began during the last episode, while the focus of the deliberations will continue to be on India.
