Participatory Mapping

Adopting First Level Adjudication

Through the Pilar project, AFRA has attempted to test the “general boundary” concept using a participatory mapping activity with the Ekuthuleni community. A rectified large-scale aerial photograph (1:2000) was used together with household interviews to identify land and land-use-right holders and to create a land rights map with demarcated boundaries. The functioning local land administration system was described and documented and existing shortcomings and problems identified.
