The Land Portal Foundation's 2022 Annual Report highlights the critical role of accessible land information and data in securing land rights and promoting social justice. The report highlights the growing recognition of the linkages between land tenure, climate change, food security, urban development and land degradation. The Foundation's co-launch of the Land Module Indicator with the Global Data Barometer in May was an important step toward creating a more open and democratic information ecosystem globally. The report also notes that the Foundation expanded its coverage to 68 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Oceania, reflecting its commitment to inclusivity and providing access to essential information for practitioners, researchers, and policymakers. In addition, the Foundation established itself as a leading convener of large-scale debates on important topics such as indigenous and community land rights, women's land rights, responsible land investment, and more. The Foundation thanks its partners, donors and users for their continued support and belief in its work.
