Project Description
The objectives of the Additional Financing for the Second Land Administration Project for Nicaragua are: (a) to strengthen the property rights of the population in the Project area through improved regularization, titling, and registry services; and (b) to improve Nicaragua's capacity to respond promptly and effectively to an eligible emergency. The Additional Financing focuses on: (i) expanding the Integrated Cadastre Registry Information System (SIICAR) in Managua and Estelí; (ii) scaling-up cadastral, titling, and regularization services; (iii) strengthening municipal cadastre capacity; and (iv) supporting land administration studies and Project management, monitoring and evaluation. The Additional Financing will use the existing implementation arrangements, with the exception of two of the co-executing agencies, the National Institute for Development Information (INIDE) and the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (MARENA), given that their activities will be completed under the original credit.
