Prize

Description

FIG and Survey Review, through former FIG Vice President Iain Greenway and Richard Grover, have decided to award a paper presented at a FIG Congress/Working Week. The Survey Review prize will be awarded every two years to the author and presenter of a selected paper at a FIG Congress/Working Week.
Survey Review is an international journal which has been published since 1931, and in recent years under the auspices of the Commonwealth Association of Surveying and Land Economy (CASLE). It has been published continuously as a quarterly journal, bringing together a wide range of papers on research, theory, practice and management in land and engineering surveying.
The paper selected for the prize passes through an initial reviewing and revision stage overseen by FIG, before being judged by members of the Editorial Board of Survey Review.
This year’s winner, “Land Valuation in Support of Responsible Land Consolidation on Ghana’s Rural Customary Lands” by Kwabena Asiama, Rohan Bennett, Jaap Zevenbergen and Seth Asiama, deals with an important subject and has implications for many other countries in which customary land rights apply.
