Milestone: Public inspections started in Benin

The project for the modernisation of the Benin land administration (PMAF) reached a milestone in September 2021. Land administration data of 12 rural villages were published for a 30 days period of inspection by the right holders.

The first results

These are the first results of a large field data collection process and of the development of an Land Administration Domain Model (LADM) based land administration system. Both are being performed by local companies with support of Dutch and Beninese experts. 

This is the beginning

After the public inspection and, when needed, correction of the data, the right holders will be registered in the national cadastre. And this is only the beginning. The PMAF project will realise the registration of up to 200.000 parcels, while the approach and the technical tools are made ready for the registration of all estimated 7 million parcels in Benin.
