The National Land Titling Programme was conceived in 2014 to place all land in Zambia on title. In 2014 only about 142000 certificates of title for a country with a land area of 752614 square kilometres. Almost 80 percent of the land is not registered and bringing all this land under title is a massive undertaking. The programme objectives are to guarantee security of tenure, reduce displacements, promote internal security and increase the revenue base and investment in the Country thereby contributing to socio-economic development. To achieve this objective the government of Zambia has piloted the implementation of the National Land Titling in two areas of Lusaka. In customary areas work has been done by private partners to document land rights. The government has also engaged the World Bank with the view to seek technical assistance in upscaling the efforts from the pilots and develop revenue potential from land titling.

The Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development (MLHUD), supported by the World Bank, has engaged a consortium led by IGN FI to implement the second phase of the National Land Information System from February 2015 to February 2020. The system integrates land registration, land administration, surveying and mapping, physical planning, property valuation and land records. Provided as a World Bank loan, the total cost of the NLIS is valued at US$66 million including the construction of buildings. Established in fulfillment of Government of Uganda policies, the NLIS and has demonstrated substantial improvements in accountability and service delivery in terms of time, security and cost effectiveness. Over US$113 million in revenue has already been collected and the NLIS has resulted in a significant reduction in: 1) backdoor transactions, 2) forgeries and graft, and 3) challenges associated with missing land records and demonstrated a solid contribution to the development of Uganda.

This paper proposes an implementation mechanism for the Land Sector Strategic Plan in Mozambique. A clear priority is identified in this proposal: DUAT production for 5 million parcels before 2025 combined with an land administration organisation where maintenance can be performed. This allows for the future development and introduction of a more comprehensive land governance. Land administration is considered as a business that operates within legal frameworks. This business approach implies result orientation, minimal possible costs, cost recovery where possible and transparency in execution of the business. Topographic mapping and land use planning should be included in this business approach. Implementation of the Land Sector Strategic Plan of Mozambique can be achieved by one unique, single and autonomous organisation for land administration and topographic mapping.

Tanzania has not been able to tap many opportunities presented by its land resources because most of the land is not yet planned, surveyed and registered. The process of land parcel registration is complicated and expensive. The Government is committed to land-related reforms and to economic and public sector change as a firm basis to achieve the envisaged strategic development objectives. The design, supply, installation, and commissioning of the Integrated Land Management Information System (ILMIS) project will fully integrate all aspects of land management in two stages: the Pilot Stage and the Development Stage. Service delivery will start with business units in the Eastern Zone and Kinondoni Municipal Council and the roll-out to the rest of the country will commence on completion of the pilot stage in July 2018. This paper and presentation will provide insights into the pilot implementation of ILMIS comprising land administration, survey and mapping, and registration.
