New Publication: Fit-for-Purpose Land Administration for All

Kadaster (International) released its newest report on March 30th, a guide titled ‘Fit-For-Purpose Land Administration for All’ written by Dr. Eva-Maria Unger and Dr. Rohan Bennett. This report shows the importance of fostering strategic partnerships amongst all land sector stakeholders - government, private sector, NGOs, and academia - when undertaking FFPLA.

The report answers pressing questions and shows how surveyors can get involved at local, national, and global levels to support FFPLA initiatives and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

FFPLA works but 1 barrier still to overcome

The original FFPLA concept and guidelines were published in 2014 and 2015. Since then, actions aimed at igniting and implementing FFPLA at country level have shown the global land administration community that FFPLA works, and can directly support the achievement of the SDGs. Despite the success, one significant barrier still needs to be overcome: the better inclusion of private sector surveyors, and the broader private sector community, including lawyers, conveyancers and notaries.

Opportunity, not a threat

To truly deliver the benefits of FFPLA at national scale, FFPLA should be seen as an opportunity rather than a threat to government, communities, NGOs, CSO, and the private sectors .

In response, this report speaks directly to the concerns and claims collected in expert groups, pilots, workshops and discussions. It presents counter claims and evidence from a growing body of documented applications, pilots, lessons and success stories.
