Abstract

Existing knowledge reveals that land as a resource is not currently managed efficiently and effectively in most countries of the world. One of the factors considered important in understanding the inefficiencies and ineffectiveness is the level of integration between agencies. The objective of this paper is to determine the level of this inefficiency in order to improve our understanding of the inter-relationship between agencies that perform land administration functions. The research methods include a synthesis of past studies and the use of case study approach. It uses as context, Lagos, in Nigeria. This approach involves a mixed method: interviews and online survey. The results revealed limited integration of processes and collaboration of agencies in the management of land for housing production. We conclude that policies are not sufficiently informed by data and there is a noticeable disconnection between agencies, and formulated policies
