Who owns my property? Prindex: Measuring property rights globally–what can India learn
Prindex is the world’s first globally comparable measure of land and property rights. Its data for 140 countries covering 96% of the world’s adult population released in July 2020 show that almost 1 billion people around the world feel it is likely or very likely that they will lose their land or home within the next five years. The Prindex data also covers India, where some 22% of adults feel insecure about their property. Land and property rights measures can trigger a race to the top among countries and within countries for establishing systems of secure property and land rights. Such measurement can reveal the poverty-reducing potential of more secure property rights that is being wasted. And they can help build stronger constituencies for change linked to urbanisation, environmental change, poverty alleviation and women’s rights.
On October 12, NCAER will host Malcolm Childress of the Global Land Alliance and Anna Locke of the Overseas Development Institute to share the findings of their just–released Prindex global assessment of perceived tenure security. To discuss the implications of the Prindex findings for India and the country’s own, long-standing quest for more secure property and land rights, they will be joined by Jagdeesh Rao Puppala of the Foundation for Ecological Security, Pranab Ranjan Choudhury of the Centre for Land Governance, and Shashanka Bhide of NCAER. Shekhar Shah, NCAER’s Director General, will moderate the discussion.
