Secure access to land and shelter is widely considered to be a condition for economic growth and poverty reduction. Several inter-governmental institutions are involved in developing and monitoring indicators that measure land tenure security to promote policy processes toward this end.

But despite growing interest among development practitioners to identify indicators that measure changes in land tenure security for vulnerable groups, little consensus exists about what good indicators are, how indicators should be used, and whether indicators are pro-poor and gender-sensitive. 

Land is LIFE

A major issue is that the same tenure situation – such as the percentage of land covered by title deeds – can imply different degrees of security to different groups, depending on historical and cultural factors, administrative practices, political choices and balance of power among various parties.

In view of the growing concerns about Land Governance and its implementation in Malaysia, a comprehensive study on this topic is badly.
