Abstrakt

The term “Fit-For-Purpose Land Administration” indicates that the approach used for building land administration systems in less developed countries should be flexible and focused on serving the purpose of the systems (such as providing security of tenure and control of land use) rather than focusing on top-end technical solutions and high accuracy surveys. Of course, such flexibility allows for land administration systems to be incrementally improved over time. This paper unfolds the Fit-For-Purpose concept by analyzing the three core components:
The spatial framework (large scale land parcel mapping) should be provided using affordable modern technologies such aerial imageries rather than field surveys.
The legal framework must support both legal and social tenure, and the regulations must be designed along administrative rather than judicial lines. The fit-for-purpose approach must be enshrined in law.
The institutional framework is often a major obstacle. The fit-for-purpose approach includes by default issues like good governance, participatory approaches and building from local strengths and norms.
This paper argues that the fit-for-purpose approach to building land administration systems in less developed countries is fundamental for meeting the upcoming post 2015 global agenda.
