Over the previous decade, the necessity of integrating policies, practices and people associated with land administration (LA) and disaster risk management (DRM) has been strongly advocated for, particularly with the escalation and increase in large-scale natural disasters. This necessity has resulted in concepts, tools, and standards for better integrating the domains. In response, recent work already conceptually links responsible LA and DRM, and further examines the call for innovative recording and enumeration approaches, through the development of an integrated LADRM model. The model can support the resilience against natural disasters and provides an approach for ‘collecting data once and using it multiple times’. Building on this, this paper identifies key blockers, opportunities, and implementation pathways. Specifically, the UNGGIM driven SFGISD and FELA frameworks are used to guide the paper, as is the LA-DRM data model itself.
