20th November 2012 -- Secure land rights are vital to the reduction of poverty in emerging economies and enhancing economic development. With the support of international development banks several African countries have initiated the implementation of land information systems. Existing initiatives clearly show that the land information systems projects are complex and require the attention of the highest authorities in charge of land issues.
Many countries still lack adequate information on land issues and effective land administration systems. To help address this, IGN France International is happy to inform you that the international consortium currently engaged in the Design,Supply, Installation, Implementation of the Lands Information System and Securing of Land Records (DeSILISoR) Project is organizing a regional conference titled:
Modernization of land administration and management systems
Implementation of land information systems (LIS):
sharing experiences, innovations and good practices.
The details of the DeSILISoR project will be presented and representatives from a number of African countries will report on their different experiences.
The second day of the conference (18th January) will focus on
“Land administration projects: IGN France International’s expertise and feedback”
It will provide relevant information on best practices, methodologies and requirements to initialize land projects and make them successful.
Several projects IGN France International recently achieved in Africa and in Asia will be presented.
Based on shared experiences and valuable best practices, this two day event has several objectives:
- Highlight the link between land administration issues and economic growth
- Present several LIS projects in Eastern African and see how by making land information available, they increase confidence of land buyers and stimulate the economy
- Explore the common issues encountered during the implementation phase related to technical tools and processes, human resources, capacity building, and organization…
This two day regional conference will be held 17-18th January 2013 in Kampala, Uganda. Representatives from several countries will make presentations on the main land issues associated with their country and their experiences with the implementation of LIS projects. It will bring together representatives from government, financial institutions and civil society and provide an opportunity to share experiences, improve the quality of knowledge and enable governments to manage these crucial cross-cutting issues.
