Abstract

This paper describes the key principles for building sustainable and Fit-For-Purpose (FFP) land administration systems especially in less developed countries
The FFP approach has three fundamental characteristics. Firstly, there is a focus on the purpose and then how to design the means for achieving it as well as possible; secondly, it requires flexibility in designing the means to meet the current constraints; and, thirdly, it emphasizes the perspective of incremental improvement to provide continuity.
The concept includes three core components: the spatial, the legal, and the institutional frameworks. Each of these components includes the relevant flexibility to meet the actual needs of today and can be incrementally improved over time in response to societal needs and available financial resources. This paper presents the FFP concept and its three core components in some detail.
This FFP approach has been recognized by FIG and the World Bank, and it is further elaborated in a recent Guide supported by GLTN and Dutch Kadaster.
