GUIDE - Fit for purpose land administration

The guide focuses on providing security of tenure for all. By providing the spatial, legal and institutional frameworks for this purpose, the frameworks also provide the basis for building land valuation and taxation systems, as well as systems for land-use planning and control. Guiding principles for building Fit-For-Purpose land administration systems should not be interpreted as prescriptive, but rather as providing direction and guidance for designing a country specific strategy for implementation. It is hoped that this guide will be instrumental in paving the way to implementing sustainable and affordable land administration systems in developing countries, enabling security of tenure for all and effective management of land use and natural resources.
