Entry for Land Ownership / Mexico


After a review of the initial information presented in the 2016 Mexico submissions for the GODI, submitters from civil society - Sergio Araiza- and responsibles of the open data initiative in México - Enrique Zapata-, got together to dialogue, analyze and perfect the information presented in these first submissions.

This is an example of the value and benefits that the Index can bring to get civil society, citizens and government together to discuss opportunity areas for open data in the country, understand different views regarding a single issue, and agree on next steps and actions to continue working towards a robust and strengthened ecosystem in Mexico.

After these analyses, we would like to kindly request the GODI to take into account the following clarifications

Land Ownership
Full agreement on current proposal
Broader comment for the GODI around the pertinence of including this sector for national governments whose cadaster and property registries are responsibility of local governments. For these reason, we included local level data as well as agricultural registry data and polygons.
