The Future of the Cadastral in Honduras
Unidad Administradora de Proyectos del Instituto de la Propiedad, Honduras
The lack of understanding of the land management issue usually held by Municipal Mayors, we can assert that most of the Cadastral Offices in the municipalities of the country do not have the technical and economic support required to comply with what is established by the Law of Municipalities and Property Law; in the first case, the municipalities are obliged to raise the urban and rural cadaster of their municipal term and to elaborate the Regulatory Plan (planning instrument) of the cities; in the second case, the cadasters that are carried out must comply with the tolerances defined in the Cadastral Measure Regulation that is part of the Property Law.
The legal framework in force in the country in Cadastral provides participation to many key players, such as: municipalities, municipalities, certified professionals for the provision of cadastral services and cadastral delegates.
Are Local Registers the Solution?
1DAI Europe , United Kingdom; 2DAI, United States; 3Kadaster, Netherlands
This paper explores the possibility of using local registers to manage and update land rights. Secure land rights are largely taken for granted in the developed world. Yet for many people in developing nations, clear and enforceable land rights are not a reality and will not be so in the near future. We advocate an approach based on simple local registers, owned, and operated by communities providing legitimate tenure services directly at the local level. We consider the governance and security arrangements required to guarantee integrity and how that might be achieved and also the linkage with existing/planned national systems. Can local registers be a “good enough” solution? in the same way that we now accept image based first registration methods, and in line with the fit-for-purpose philosophy? .
