Many participatory mapping initiatives generate a lot of land data with varying quality and missing meta data. A handbook movie explains how the quality becomes verifiable...
With a global, digital land tenure atlas, the impact and progress of FFP LA can be indicatively assessed and monitored. The framework and architecture of the atlas were defined, with suggestions on content/layout and publication.
While the LAND programme ended, a new programme funded by the Dutch ministry of Foreign Affairs was launched in 2019: LAND-at-Scale.
After the 2016 Latin cadastres conference several Fit-For-Purpose pilots were started, like here in a post-conflict area of Colombia. Land titling is a very strong instrument to support a peaceful society. Land administration may also contribute to food security and prevention of deforestation.
This report bundles experiences by a variety of actors, giving an overview of implementation strategies and best practices in recording overlapping and complementary land rights. With a special focus on land rights for vulnerable groups.
Citizens in Cuba can acquire private property of land and real estate again. After two failed attempts Kadaster was asked to do a needs assessment for a successful implementation of an urban cadastre.
The agricultural sector has a key role to play in poverty reduction and social stability. One of the instruments to scale up productivity, efficiency and tenure security is land consolidation. The needs assessment showed necessary steps on central and local level. Kadaster is involved in follow-up projects.
The feasibility of the FFP approach for speeding up formalisation of land rights was tested in 2 pilot areas. This was done in cooperation with the national land reform institute and other state level institutions. As a result land certificates were supplied to land owners.
After this LAND project, the Beninese cadastre (ANDF), Kadaster, VNG International and the Royal Netherlands Embassy have agreed on a 4 year project on modernisation of the land administration. It started in 2018.
At the Arab region Conference (2018), Kadaster and the Jordanian Department of Land and Survey shared experiences in land administration and digital archiving. They promoted cross-border cooperation for the benefit of peace and understanding.
A multi-stakeholder dialogue and workshop series conducted by Kadaster revealed Nepal is well placed in terms of laws, capacity, and collaboration for supporting the country-wide application of UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) in the land sector.
In 2017, Kadaster and the Institution of Surveyors of Kenya organised the Eastern Africa regional surveyors conference. Participants acknowledged the critical role for the surveyor in a successful application of FFP LA.
