Participative Cartography in Benin

Felix Braeckman1, Hervé Dossoumou2, Egy Sossou2, Anouk Lodder1

1VNG International The Netherlands; 2VNG International Benin

Biography
Together with a team of dedicated colleagues based in Benin, Felix Braeckman manages the PFL land project funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign affairs (Projet d’appui à la gestion Foncière au niveau Local). The project aims to introduce the new national Land Code (Code Foncier et Domanial) in the municipalities of Dogbo and Klouékanmè, which are located approximately 150 km West of Cotonou. The project’s activities involve land registration and surveying, but also awareness raising on the new legislation among local populations and supporting the municipalities in their changing institutional framework for land affairs. Local communities and municipalities play a key role in this new land code, which is why the donor entrusted this project to VNG International, the international department of the Dutch Association of Municipalities. VNG International is involved in approximately 50 projects supporting local governance, municipal service delivery and decentralisation processes in emerging and developing countries.
