11 – 12 May, WHITEBOX - HALL B
Land Administration plays an essential role in enhancing tenure security, facilitating economic development, and the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Secure property rights and effective land and property markets are cornerstones of an efficient, productive economy. The recent pandemic has brought to light the very intimate relationship between land and disaster that is likely to feel the brunt of future economic fallout through land market decline or collapse and subsequent tenure insecurity.
A new era in Land Administration is emerging for an agile and effective program that will transform land administration globally. The innovative thinking coupled with quickly maturing, scalable technical approaches, support from policymakers, world-leading private companies, integration of data from third party, modern geospatial technologies, and a new professional mindset would be crucial to reach the fruition.
Underpinned by emerging policies, principles of interoperability, standardization and pragmatism, a range of sustainable and scalable private-sector products and services are emerging. These are enabling innovations and automation in national land administration sectors. Importantly, these technical developments are supplemented – if not enabled – by simple legal procedures and streamlining institutional processes.
