Abstract

New solutions in land administration are required that can deliver security of tenure for all, are affordable and can be quickly developed and incrementally improved over time. The Fit-For-Purpose (FFP) approach to land administration has emerged to meet these requirements.

This paper discusses the building of the FFP approach at country level: “how to make it work”. In the view of the authors the focus of a FFP implementation providing tenure security for all. A FFP implementation is strongly related to the recognition of the continuum of land rights. Implementation of the FFP approach means to recognise, record and review land rights.

The FFP approach, is flexible in terms of accuracy and also in relation to the variety of tenure types to be secured. A complete overview is required of the tenure systems and land rights related to the areas affected.

The Social Tenure Domain Model allows modelling and managing the complex social tenure relationships between people and land found within legitimate rights.

Implementation of a FFP approach requires an ICT approach based on a strategy. Guidelines for the development of an ICT infrastructure are presented.
