There is a deep affinity and interconnection between various FIG commissions and none more so than commissions 7 (land administration), 8 (spatial planning), 9 (valuation). Initiatives such as the ‘valuation of unregistered land’ projects as undertaken by RICS, FIG and GLTN and output from RICS on professional sectors and the SDGs a reality, have really started to resonant with many in the global land professionals from both the private and public sectors. FFP, LADM and ILMS along with numerous other standards, benchmarks and indices are only there to achieve the purpose of enabling transparent, effective and efficient land & property markets, the SDGs are a framework for achieving this goal. This workshop and masterclass sets out to open this dialogue on how we can actively interact with the SDG framework to promote awareness, learning and collaboration.
