pdf.png Learning for Land Tool Development and Implementation. A Good Practice Guide. HOT

(0 votes)

Download

Good Practice Guide This Guide has been developed for use by our colleagues and partners in implementing the GLTN capacity development strategy at country level. It is based on practical experience gained in the course our work during GLTN Phase 2, specifically in the development and application of pro-poor, gender responsive land tools. In our experience, learning is a fundamental precondition for the successful innovations that are so urgently needed to achieve responsible land administration for secure land and property rights for all.

The Guide is presented as a living document, to be improved over time as we jointly explore and develop improved methods and processes of good learning practice.

NUA AR Land is central to sustainable urban development as most measures are only possible to be realized if sufficient land at the right location is available and affordable. The issues of land in human settlements are increasingly similar in countries at all levels of economic development from small rural settlements in developed countries to mega-cities in developing countries.

This briefing note (in Arabic) outlines commitments that policy makers in local governments should make and act upon regarding land issues within the New Urban Agenda.

pdf.png The Social Tenure Domain Model: A pro poor land rights recording system (Arabic - 2016)

(0 votes)

Download

STDM FIG arabicMost developing countries have less than 30 percent cadastral coverage. This means that over 70 percent of the land in many countries is generally outside the land register. This has caused enormous problems for example in cities, where over one billion people live in slums without proper water, sanitation, community facilities, security of tenure or quality of life. This has also caused problems for countries with regard to food security and rural land management issues. 

STDM  is a pro-poor land information management system that can be used to support the land administration of the poor in urban and rural areas, which can also be linked to the cadastral system in order that all information can be integrated.

This publication is in Arabic.

(0 votes)

Download

trlupThis guide is primarily designed to provide practical knowledge on how to improve tenure security through land-use planning, with a particular focus on applications in developing countries. The guide is based on an in-depth review of publications on land use planning and land tenure security and builds on expert deliberations held through multi-stakeholder expert group meetings and knowledge and experiences gained from country specific case studies reflecting tenure security in land use planning from Asia, South America, and sub-Saharan Africa. This guide is complemented by an e-learning package that supports the efficient didactic coordination of knowledge, effective learning and knowledge dissemination.

This work was undertaken through a joint endeavour with the Chair of Land Management at Technische Universität München (TUM), the Sector Project Land Policy and Land Management of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and UN-Habitat through the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN).

NUA Brief espLa Nueva Agenda Urbana (NAU) es sobre las personas. Las personas necesitan un lugar donde puedan vivir con dignidad y ello implica un suelo; suelo para vivienda, trabajo, educación, actividades comerciales, ocio, transporte, etc. El aumento de la población en la actualidad eleva a su vez la presión sobre el suelo, que en consecuencia se vuelve escaso. ¡Estamos en un momento crucial! El uso del suelo así como el acceso al mismo necesita ser gestionado con cuidado y responsabilidad para aprovechar el potencial transformador de la NAU. En particular, en situaciones en que las ciudades necesitan crecer.

Land based financing is a collective name given to a range of instruments by which local governments could expand their revenue base and generate funds that will help them to deliver services and infrastructure development and achieve their maintenance goals. These instruments can be used to improve public finance; equitably link public investments, private benefits and public revenues; and promote more sustainable patterns of urban development.

doc.png Final Draft: Guide to the Valuation of Unregistered Lands

(0 votes)

Invitation to contribute to the Guide on Valuation of Unregistered Lands:

GLTN invites you to contribute your expertise to the Guide on Valuation of Unregistered Lands. The guidebook was originally meant to be a manual for valuers, but its purpose was changed during the period of its development to also serve as an accessible document for policymakers.

The several reasons for adoption of this change include sensitizing policymakers that some bureaucrats believe valuation to be just a technical exercise. While valuation does have technical requirements, professional level expertise is required to read markets and consequently determine market values. Such misunderstandings of the very nature of markets, market value and market valuations can be particularly damaging when it comes to the assessment of values to be included as compensation for compulsory acquisition, and this guide therefore emphasizes that context. However, many points raised therein apply to valuations in general.

The structure of the guide is spread across eight chapters. The introduction is about the global roles of land valuation and unregistered lands, and how this guide fits into the contexts provided by other relevant policy-related documents. The second chapter addresses the purpose and need for the guide, and the third addresses the core purpose: How to determine the market value of interests in unregistered land in cases of government expropriation. The fourth chapter drills down into the market value of informal rights while the fifth addresses likely barriers and challenges to be met. The sixth chapter recommends best practices in such contexts, and the seventh addresses the valuation of different types of unregistered land. The eighth chapter addresses what makes a valuation of unregistered land fir for purpose. Finally, the Guide makes recommendations towards capacity building for fit-for-purpose valuation programs and adopting the fit-for-purpose valuation approach.
