La privatisation des terres collectives au Maroc: une voie de dynamisation du marché foncier agricole

Mohamed Hicham Ferrassi

MCA-Morocco, Morocco

Les terres collectives revêtent une grande importance dans la vie sociale et économique du pays mais leur potentiel agro-sylvo-pastoral n’est que partiellement valorisé, à cause principalement de leurs exploitations dans l’indivision par les ayants droit.

L’activité Foncier rural du programme financé par Millennium Challenge Corporation(MCC) vise à lutter contre la pauvreté à travers l’amélioration de la productivité agricole caractérisée par de faibles niveaux d’investissement et par la faible dynamique du marché foncier, conséquences directes de leur statut.

Le projet d’article propose de partager l’expérience du gouvernement du Maroc quant à l’approche adoptée dans le développement et la mise en œuvre de l’opération de privatisation de quelques terres collectives, tant dans ses dimensions de politique gouvernementale, par les réformes pensées et appliquées, que dans ses dimensions économiques, sociales et environnementales. Le tout est appuyé par la mise en place des mesures d’accompagnement pour assurer au mieux la réussite du projet.


Institutional reform of the public administration system and its effect on land administration (case study: Republic of Moldova)

Olga Buzu

Agency for Land Relations and Cadastre of the Republic of Moldova, Moldova

The public administration reform currently underway in Moldova covers all ministries, departments and agencies, including the central public authority for land administration, geodetic surveying and cadastre. Although the Agency for Land Relations and Cadastre (ALRC) has been established in particular on the World Bank’s recommendation as an optimal structure enabling integrated development of a number of economic segments and activity types to ensure effective land administration, it will be reorganized and its tasks to develop policies and strategies in the spheres it used to regulate will be allocated to several separate ministries.

The paper discusses and attempts to assess possible effects and consequences of the ALRC reorganization and its influence on further development of the real estate market and its infrastructure, on the quality and state of the multi-purpose real estate cadastre; it also presents the recommendations developed to improve the land administration system in the Republic of Moldova.


An examination of spatial planning impact on development of the agricultural land in Kosovo

This paper aims to identify some of the main findings on the impact of spatial planning, towards the development of agricultural land as a national priority in Kosovo. The process of protection, regulation, and development of agricultural land through the use of spatial planning instruments is by no means new – in fact, the core idea of planning for future urban expansions and developments is based on the reasoning that key national and local resources necessitate an sustainable approach.

Agriculture has been a key national priority for Kosovo institutions in the last decade or so, taking into consideration that Kosovo’s population living in rural areas is about 62%. Though, the productivity in this sector is severely hampered by unclear land ownership, fragmented and inaccessible plots of land, and especially from the loss of prime agricultural land due to uncontrolled spatial developments.
