Practical experience with mapping informal farms and houses in Zambia

Emmanuel Tembo3, Frank Kakungu2, Kelvin Chibangula3, Shadreck Mutti1

1World Bank, Zambia; 2Central Statistics Office, Zambia; 3MLNR, Zambia

Ministry of Lands & Natural Resources (MLNR) in Zambia has embarked on a National Land Titling Programme which is expected to run up 2021. However, MLNR and Ministry of Agriculture do not have accurate statistics on the number and sizes of farms due to number of reasons including; Duo land tenure system i.e. Leasehold and Customary; and lack of up-to-date Land information system. Since information on farms is critical in food security planning, and in order to provide accurate statistics on formal and informal large farms, the World Bank is supporting a program obtaining a full listing and perimeter mapping of all formal and informal large and medium-scale farms under the Zambia Integrated Forest Landscape Project (ZIFLP) context. Further, Under the country's regularisation of informal settlements, the Bank is also supporting the mapping of residential properties in Lusaka, Zambia. The presentation highlights our practical experiences in implementing the above exercises.

Using building footprint data to inform planning & monitor compliance with land use regulations: The case of Kigali & Musanze

Rhona Nyakulama, Gaspard Nelson Habiyaremye, Jean Claude Ntirenganya

Independent consultant, Rwanda

Investments in advanced technologies and building multiple information systems can leverage interoperability and integration to improve analytical processes informing policy and development. Rwanda has developed several systems to implement different obligations for citizen-centred oriented services. The comprehensive Land Administration Information System, Building Permit Management Information System, interactive physical planning and spatial information web applications to access physical development policies and guidelines are examples of systems that can be integrated to develop a land use monitoring system. The interaction of these systems and building foot print data using selected areas in Kigali and Musanze will demonstrate the importance of developing a digital land use monitoring system to conform to policy guidelines and development control. Regulated data structures, provided for in a national ICT policy and strategy, ensure that such innovations are cost effective and avoid replications and redundancies, where each system maintains its unique core function and information source of truth.

Agence Foncière Rurale, AFOR, Côte d'Ivoire

La Côte d'Ivoire a adopté la loi n° 98-750 du 23 décembre 1998 dans le but de transformer les droits coutumiers en droit de propriété.

Afin de faciliter et accélérer l'application de cette loi, un cadre institutionnel adéquat a été mis en place à travers la création de l'Agence Foncière Rurale (AFOR), chargée d'assurer la maîtrise d'œuvre de l'ensemble du Programme National de Sécurisation Foncière Rurale.

Au niveau local des comités villageois et Sous-préfectoraux, ont été créés avec pour rôle l'approbation et la validation des dossiers de sécurisation foncière. Interviennent également dans ce système, les Commissaires Enquêteurs, les Préfets de département, les Sous-préfets et les chefs de villages.

L’amélioration des compétences de ces acteurs nécessite un accompagnement sur plusieurs aspects, à savoir une définition claire des rôles et des responsabilités, l’élaboration d’un mode opératoire simple, la formation des acteurs. Un appui financier, matériel et logistique est un complément indispensable.

Modernizing land information systems in Panama

Francisco Artola

Ministry of the presidency, Panama

Session Title: The Role of the Private Sector in the Modernization of Land Administration Services.

Before the creation of The National Land Administration Authority “ANATI”, Panama had the National Program for Land Administration, better known as “PRONAT created in 2001, whose purpose was the execution of regularization and massive titling projects.

With Law 59 of October 8, 2010, The National Land Administration Authority is created, subrogating the functions of “PRONAT”.

ANATI, by Law 22 of 2006 regarding Public Contracts of Panama, carries out contracts for cadastral regularization and titling, broadening the radius of action, and seeking not only to know the predial situation, but also to issue property titles to that part of the population that did not have it and that was exposed to suffer social damage in the absence of legal security.

Contracting and direct implementation in systematic land formalization. 25 years of experience in Peru.

Victor Endo

Global Land Alliance, Peru

When is contracting out private firms for “systematic registration” preferable to direct implementation by government agencies? Is such outsourcing an appropriate solution for developing countries with limited capacities to manage contracts, monitor performance and quality, and to access the latest technology? The Peruvian urban and rural mass-scale titling programs over the past 25 years have transformed the property system of the country. Most of the titling activities were directly executed by governmental agencies with varied results. Only recently -after a large experience have been accumulated and there exist a local market of private professionals and companies- the first outsourcing experiences are being tried in an ongoing project. A balance of the experiences and conclusions will be presented.

Muhamad Alrajhi

Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs, Saudi Arabia

.In Saudi Arabia as in other countries, the management of land is a core function of government. As a consequence, the process of creation and maintenance of land registration and land information systems is, necessarily, administratively-driven. However, the benefits of improved of land registration and land information systems accrue overwhelming to citizens and private-sector companies in a range of forms, with potential for

• Increase in economic efficiency

• Expansion of economic opportunity

• Promotion of urban vitality

• Nurturing of citizen well-being

• Contribution to environmental sustainability

This paper describes the socio-economic impact of implementing improved land registration and land information systems in Saudi Arabia, with a focus on the contribution of this work to accomplishing urgent national objectives as defined in the Kingdom’s National Transformation Plan 2020 and Vision 2030 documents.

The core conceptual model to be designed for capacity building shall be in harmony with the priorities of the Arab Region needs. It will improve the efficiency and quality of land management and strengthen capacities of land use, land administration, and land development that will lead to a more effective land market. A well-functioning land market together with high security of land ownership will lead to stronger economies, which contribute finally to the stability, prosperity and democracy in the region. In MENA region, the land tenure systems are very similar because the countries share common religion, culture, and history. Multiple informal land rights are inherited and are mixed with Islamic rules and colonial legislations. In the current situation, the formal and informal land rights coexist. The model will be a key for sustainable development by focusing on land information and land administration improvement, which are the base of any reforms.

Modelling land-use change for indigenous socio-economic development: Curve Lake First Nation, Canada

Robert Fligg1,2

1Natural Resources Canada; 2University of Waterloo, Canada

Land-use change is mainly driven by factors of socio-economic development, a relationship between economic activity and social life to improve the well-being of people. The indicator of socio-economic development used for Indigenous communities in Canada is the Community Well-Being Index (CWB). A CWB score for a community is based on income, education, housing, and labour. The relationship of these CWB variables to socio-economic drivers of land-use change such as demography, technology, industry, and employment is complex; modelling these variables will explain the relationship.

An integrated agent-based model on land-use decision-making that will assist First Nations to understand the relationship of CWB variables to socio-economic drivers of land-use change is being developed in collaboration with Curve Lake First Nation, a community 120 km’s north-east of Toronto. The model will be validated if it simulates a realistic-like scenario, such that it assists First Nations in land-use decision-making.

Innovations in Indigenous land tenure in Canada: Reconciliation as the catalyst

Akbarali Karsan, Gavin Lawrence, Robert Fligg, Erin Tompkins, Steven Rogers, Brian Ballantyne

Natural Resources Canada, Canada

The Government of Canada (hereafter Crown) is committed to achieving reconciliation with Indigenous peoples “through a renewed, nation-to-nation, government-to-government, and Inuit-Crown relationship based on recognition of rights, respect, co-operation, and partnership as the foundation for transformative change.” Implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) means that Canada’s relationship with Indigenous peoples must be transformed. Such transformation has resulted in 10 principles, rooted in s35 of the Constitution Act 1982, in UNDRIP, in the Royal Commission on the Aboriginal Peoples (RCAP) and in the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Thus, innovations in Indigenous land tenure engage both the Crown’s fiduciary duty to Indigenous peoples and the Honour of the Crown. This means that spatializing Canadians now means rethinking borders and boundaries. Six Crown projects illustrate meaningful and uplifting engagement with Indigenous peoples vis-à-vis-land tenure.

Exploring pluralism: building resilience and respect

Raelene Webb

Murray Chambers, Australia

When the British came to Australia in 1788, they brought with them notions of land governance based upon commerce and individual ownership that were in sharp contrast with those of the original inhabitants whose land governance systems were underpinned by communal ownership and inalienability.

Ignoring the knowledge and techniques of the Aboriginal people well adapted to the land, the British settlers dispossessed the original inhabitants of their land. Despite the impact of dispossession, Aboriginal governance systems and relationships to land remain strong.

Even after recognition of Indigenous land rights, traditional land governance systems are required to give way to Western notions of land management. The challenge is to reconcile Western land policy approaches with Indigenous concepts. The way forward is a dialogue based on respect for Indigenous land governance systems, rather than a desire that they “yield” to, and conform with, non-Indigenous land policies.

First nations' post-counter map praxis

First Nations Geomatics: a Post-Counter Map Praxis

Historically, survey and map making have represented power and authority for land holders and within contested lands space. In the examination of past Canadian counter map actions, a new theory building is proposed of ‘Post-counter mapping’. The theory's evidence is from an emerging geomatics praxis happening in First Nations today with new innovations in geomatics technologies and implementations.

This theory was derived from semi-directed interviewees, of indigenous based agents, geo-industry professionals and topic knowledgeable academics. These groups were interviewed about their counter map views of: past, present, and future comments on a topic which all knew about in varying degrees over recent times.

Triangulation of these counter map dialogues provides new evidence as to a Post-counter map praxis perspective. This theory building offers with the literature, new research examining and gaining qualitative knowledge as to a future reconciliation avenue via current geomatics.
