Abstract

Having land rights for all at the short term at affordable cost and with an acceptable quality is a clear ambition that has been defined by many national and international organizations worldwide. In speeding up the development of land registration, the knowledge and technology of tomorrow are key enablers. Innovation and the embracement of unforeseen developments are believed to be a prerequisite for success.
Innovations in land administration sector should not only be seen as to be dependent on technology. Also process innovation is important as human, social and ethical criteria are dynamic factors as well as our (the understanding of the) physical environment we live in.
Modern day technology also offers a lot of possibilities for the involvement of users. It is believed that a user demand driven development of land administration will result in higher sustainability.
Besides the United Nations (UN GGIM and its Expert Group on Land Administration and Management), other global organised organisations play an important role in impelling the development of land administration worldwide. Examples are FIG, World Bank, ISO and OGC.
As innovation is not a linear process nowadays, meeting the objectives is therefore dependent on the rate of innovation in our sector. In this assumption, the relevance of change, the influence of technology, the ability of land administrations to adapt (and perhaps show leadership) including the key role of users should be emphasized. It is believed that stakeholder involvement is crucial in sustainable development of land administration systems, which has many different aspects. Apart from technology also standardisation, societal constellation, partnerships (including finance and business models) and capacity building give opportunities for acceleration of developments.
