Countries

Country maps, data and charts provide information on more than 85 countries in our four Regional Focus Points, five National Land Observatories (NLOs), and beyond. NLOs are funded activities at country level. They initiate decentralised activities and strive for more inclusive participation of local partners in collecting, managing, and reviewing land data, thereby promoting transparency and accountability in decision-making processes over land and investments in their countries. NLOs are an important tool which:

  • Provide an opportunity for information-sharing and dialogue within existing multi-stakeholder platforms
  • Facilitate policy influence at national level (where most land governance decisions are made) 

Are you interested in establishing a National Land Observatory in your country? Or are you part of an independent land governance structure or initiative that could benefit from our support? If so, we invite you to get in touch

The data represented in the Land Matrix is constantly evolving. Your participation is essential to make this resource more accurate and comprehensive. You can do that by adding a deal, providing feedback on existing data, or contacting us with any other queries or suggestions. Find out how to get involved.

Data

Search the dataset through pre-configured entry points where deals have been grouped by common shared attributes (such as nature of investment, region, or investor), filter information according to your line of interest, or drill down to single deals where you can provide feedback and start a discussion through comments.

Charts

Generate your own downloadable infographics using a wide selection of charts to illustrate information about deals, such as the global flow of transnational land acquisitions, the total size and number of deals, and a breakdown of deals according to sector and interest.
