Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The Project Development Objective is to regularize land rights in selected priority districts and to modernize land administration services. The project has four componets:

  1. Systematic Land Regularization. The objective of this Component would be to support the systematic regularization of land use rights in selected districts through the issuance of community land delimitation certificates and formal documentation of DUAT.
  2. Institutional Development and Strengthening of the Legal Framework. The objective of this Component would be to improve the efficiency of existing land administration institutions, their functioning and the standards or practices by which they collect, process, provide and maintain information on land, including the improvement of service delivery at district and provincial level.
  3. Land Information System Strengthening. This Component’s objective would be to strengthen the existing land information system to enable the collection, maintenance and provision of information that is up-to-date, integrated, synchronized and interoperable with data sets from relevant sectors and agencies for the functioning of a multi-purpose cadastre.
  4. Project Management and Coordination. This component would include: support to MITADER and its three main Directorates (the National Directorate of Land - DINAT, the National Directorate of Land Planning and Resettlement - DINOTER, the National Centre for Cartography and Remote Sensing - CENACARTA) and the National Fund for Sustainable Development (FNDS) to manage the Project through financing of a Project Implementation Unit (PIU), monitoring and evaluation, and public awareness and outreach activities.
