This paper provides an insight into a recently published “New Technology and Emerging Trends: The State of Play for Land Administration” Guide by the World Bank that provides decision support to designers of Land Administration programs requiring guidance on what new and emerging technologies could be effectively adopted and integrated within their programs. The Guide is positioned within the context of implementing Fit-For-Purpose (FFP) land administration solutions where technical solutions supporting the implementation of the spatial framework need to be complemented by appropriate legal and institutional frameworks. The Guide has the following target audience: World Bank staff providing guidance to developing countries designing their land administration programs; staff specifying land administration programs for developing countries; donors providing guidance and aid to developing countries; senior civil servant decision-makers involved in formulating policies in the land sector; and public and private sector land professionals involved in land administration.
