Support to the development and piloting of an Open source Cadastre

Description

Securing land tenure and access to land is vital for development. Security of tenure encourages long term investments on land and creates incentives for sustainable rural development. An effective and transparent land administration has an important role in ensuring the security of tenure. However in several developing countries, land administrations fail to secure land tenure rights of the poor. The project aims to improve poor rural people's access to land by developing sustainable land administration systems in countries with limited financial resources. The implementation of the project will focus on 1) Development of an Open Source Cadastre and Registration Shell; 2) Piloting the product in three countries; 3) Building an online user community and 4) Ensuring technical support and software maintenance.The duration of the project is three years and its budget is about € 2 million.
