With this State of Land Information Report we seek to provide an overview of existing data and information on key land issues. Our aim is to uncover the many different sources of land data and information in South Africa and thus provide a basis to substantiate, refute or nuance the often-repeated rhetoric that there is a lack of land data. To this end, we developed an original scoping and assessment methodology building on existing internationally recognized and well-known frameworks. For the very first time, we systematically reviewed and categorized the entire landscape of data and information related to key land topics in South Africa, assessing over 104 land resources from 59 different sources. This robust scoping exercise not only allowed us to see trends and gaps when it came to land data collection, but also prompted us to provide very practical recommendations to improve visibility and usability of data and information, thus seeking to improve the land information ecosystem in the country.
