The impact of risk and disaster events on land and property within the developed world in the last decades has highlighted a significant problem in the ability of citizens and governments to address and respond to these threats. A breakdown in the process of identifying, analysing, evaluating and treating these risks has occurred, leaving communities exposed and vulnerable to a range of very real risk possibilities.

The integration of land administration information and risk management processes is considered essential for achieving effective land risk management practices and community resilience for risk events. However, in most countries, land administration and risk management are usually disparate disciplines. This research addresses this problem with the overall aim of facilitating improved risk management of land and property for all stakeholders.

This research investigates how land administration could support the process of managing risk to land and property for a range of stakeholders. Its primary objective is to develop a land risk management model which illustrates how these two elements, land administration and risk management, could be integrated to enable the implementation of effective land risk management practices by all stakeholders and to facilitate the development of a resilient community.
