Open Study Visit September 2019

Improving Land Administration

The purpose of the programme is to strengthen participants in working within the context of Land Administration. Increasing participants’ awareness of the role and possibilities within their specific work, strengthening them as well as the institutions and stakeholders involved in a national and international context and thus improving the setting of a reliable, transparent, fair and fit for future Land Administration. 
Kadaster will be used as one of the examples of a multipurpose Cadastre, and gives an opportunity to discuss institutional, organisational and technical topics with experts. In an interactive setting participants will be encouraged to find practical, purpose-driven approaches for

Land Administration related challenges.
