Who are the data subjects? Many people across numerous sectors struggle with such questions and more. The land governance sector in India is no different. But somehow, it seems the land data ecosystem in India is more complex and controversial.

FAO’s Land Tenure Notes provide information on
land tenure in a format that can be used by grassroots
organizations which work with small farmers
and others in rural communities. Improving secure
access to land by the rural poor is essential in order
