Land, climate & human are the major critical actors of world history & development. “Buy land, they're not making it anymore", said Mark Twain. Land is a precious resource, the bedstead in which seeds of development are sown. Every activity on the earth requires land as founding support. This research is (1) an attempt to develop framework for global indices based on land policies amongst nations to investigate its impact on presence or absence of development (2) To develop Global Land index. The objective of developing Land Index is to improve the lives of people around the world, particularly the bottom of pyramid, by helping government, the private sector and the civil society to collaborate more effectively and make better access and use of the scarce but constant resources to solve economic, social and environmental problems. The Index will consider gender rights and SDGs if incorporated in state policies.
