This paper aims to analyze the requirements for capacity development as a precondition for implementing Fit- For-Purpose (FFP) Land Administration Systems at country level. The FFP concept is not a technical fix. It is about applying the spatial, legal and institutional methodologies that are most fit for the purpose of providing secure tenure for all by addressing the current constraints and allowing for incremental improvement over time.
This paper identifies five key steps for addressing this quest for capacity: (i) Analysis of the country context, (ii) Capacity assessment; (iii) Capacity development strategy, (iv) Implement capacity development strategy, and (v) Monitoring and evaluation.
