Program description

The course is designed for motivated academics and mid-career professionals involved, in developing land policy and land information infrastructure from an managerial, and operational perspective.

Land is at the basis of all societies. Land policy regulates the access to land and the management of land through the land administration processes. Its instruments, however, determine how governments provide access to land, protect tenure security, regulate the land market, implement land reform, preserve the environment, and levy land taxes for economic growth, food security, nature conservation, the protection of vulnerable groups, poverty reduction and housing.

Land information systems provide land information about the ownership, value and use of land and, consequently, are an essential tool when it comes to accomplishing these tasks.

The course is designed for motivated academics and mid-career professionals involved, or likely to be involved, in developing land information systems, with the emphasis on land administration systems from the academic, managerial, technical and operational perspectives.
