Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Dubai Land Department (DLD) recently organised a technical workshop on data collection for Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Land Indicators in cooperation with UN Habitat. The workshop was held over two days and aimed to discuss land indicators and standards as a priority in sustainable development goals and national voluntary reporting, as well as when facing sustainable challenges in developing countries.

HE Sultan Butti bin Mejren, Director General of DLD, said: “Dubai is a recognised global destination for land registration with a track record of achievements that benefit other countries in urban planning and eliminating intractable problems to ensure a better tomorrow for future generations. We have already organised several relevant global conferences, and we are happy to share our expertise with many countries to position Dubai as a leader in this field.”

In addition to discussing land indicators, participants were able to present and discuss the IAEG-SDG-approved methodology for measuring indicators and data sources for surveying and management. Participants also discussed a list of essential questions and ran through joint questionnaire modules for data collection developed by custodian agencies, concepts, implications for different survey types, and inventory by country of surveys where questions can be integrated/added. At the end of the workshop, the participants agreed on the next steps and action plans based on the workshop’s outcomes.

The workshop was held in conjunction with the World Data Forum (WDF) in Dubai. It is designed for technical officers in National Statistical Offices (NSOs) responsible for the survey design, management, and reporting on the SDGs including land indicators.

The workshop was attended by agency representatives who contributed to the provision of specialised data, in addition to statistics experts and supporting partners with the aim of learning and exchanging experiences among each other.
