There are two major drivers that are increasingly encouraging and compelling countries, especially developing countries, to adopt a Fit-For-Purpose (FFP) approach to land administration. The first relates to the Global Agenda as set by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other frameworks, such as the New Urban Agenda, where it is now accepted that security of tenure is a rerequisite for successful transformational change. The second is about taking advantage of the opportunities provided by new and emerging game-changing technology developments that change the focus from costly, hightech solutions to providing fast, low cost, participatory approaches for achieving secure tenure for all.
This paper initially provides background to the 2030 Global Agenda and the realization that many of these goals will not be achieved without quickly solving the current insecurity of tenure crisis through the FFP approach to land administration. New technology and emerging trends for land administration,
identified within the World Bank’s Guide (2017), will then be reviewed within the context of implementing FFP land administration solutions.
The paper will review the recent experiences from implementing FFP land administration solutions in three developing countries, Indonesia, Nepal and Uganda. This will include how their country strategies were evolved, how the FFP land administration guidelines were interpreted and adapted, how politicians
and decision makers signed onto the approach, and how the mind-set of key stakeholders, including surveyors, were changed to embrace FFP land administration.
Finally, the paper presents some concluding discussions and lessons learnt.
