This State of Land Information (SOLI) report is an analysis of the current state of land data in Zambia, assessing the availability of land information and the compliance of this information with open data standards.
This research report identifies the various public sector sources of land data and information in Zambia. It provides a general overview of the sources of land data or information generated by the Government or public institutions involved in land governance. It aims to be a diagnostic tool for the land information ecosystem in Zambia to enable targeted interventions for improved information management at a later stage.
The first section describes Zambia’s legal framework for data governance and for opening up information. It examines Zambia’s international and national commitments to access to information and its instruments for data and information governance. Good data governance ensures transparency about the purpose for collecting, storing and disseminating information. The second section examines the availability of land data and information provided by the Zambian public sector entity responsible for land administration and is organized according to six key land data categories . The third section evaluates the openness of this information by assessing it against 10 criteria for open data, as used by international best practice .
