Land and property rights in the Middle East and North Africa

How data can drive change

Online event in partnership with Land Portal Foundation

8 December 2020


Land and property rights are an essential to building just and equitable societies. Yet Prindex data shows that more than 1 in 4 people living in the Middle East and North Africa fear for these rights – a higher proportion than anywhere else in the world.

Drawing on expert knowledge, regional experience, and the latest data, the event will examine where insecurity is highest, who is most likely to feel insecure, and why. Crucially, it is a chance to discuss what needs to be done to drive change.
