Land Records for the Poor - BRIEF 2012

land-records-for-the-poor-briefPARTICIPATORY. AFFORDABLE. CREDIBLE. EQUITABLE.


Conventional land administration systems rarely improve tenure security for the poor. Land registration is not a neutral process. It usually aims to create “active” tenure security so that documented (“titled”) land can be managed in a formalized system. For poor people, the priority is “passive” tenure security so that they may avoid eviction or losing their right to the land. A “continuum of land recording” approach can develop into one that also increasingly supports “active” tenure security, but which begins the process from the more protective “passive” side.
