Sound land administration, efficient land management, and sustainable real estate markets are vital for good governance and are indispensable for economic, social, and environmental development. The way that people live and work is dramatically impacted by megatrends and disruptive technological developments such as cloud services, distributing network systems, AI, and machine learning. Major global challenges such as urbanization, cybersecurity and digital ethics, repetitive financial crises, and natural and man-made disasters, like the recent pandemic, also have a dramatic impact on peoples’ lives. In particular, the COVID-19 pandemic is anticipated to slow the recent efforts toward the reduction of global poverty.
Technical, fiscal, administrative, legal, and policy issues related to land administration and land management have been changing and improving in response to the UN Sustainable Development Agenda 2030. However, although there is a broad recognition that a stable and transparent land policy framework for tenure security and development of efficient and inclusive land administration systems is essential for sustainable prosperity for everyone, different countries follow differing strategies in the management of land and real estate. This often leads to uncertain results or countries failing to meet their goals.
In this Issue, in an effort to share best practices for solutions and risk-mitigation measures, and to improve awareness and preparedness for future disruptive changes, we invite papers focusing on the following:
- Modern trends in designing and building efficient land administration systems that provide secure tenure for all and support the development of sustainable real estate markets
- Good practice, common challenges, and opportunities in the management of land.
The focus of the papers may be on—but are not limited to—the following themes:
- Policy and strategy development processes in land administration and land management at a governmental level in order to meet current and future user needs and challenges, standardization in the recordation of land and property, fit-for-purpose (FFPLA) land administration, formalization of informal constructions, digitalization and urban land administration (ULA), disaster management, etc.
- Technical issues and challenges in cadaster and land management; cadastral data collection, validation, and dissemination, as well as novel solutions for typical problems (initial data collection, crowdsourcing/VGI, LADM, distributing network systems, blockchain, machine learning, AI-based services, quality improvement, data integration, user access, open data and platform economy, etc.)
- Extending the scope of cadaster with 3D, 4D, BIM, indoor cadaster, public law restrictions, tenure security for all, legal issues such as the digital trust and ethical issues, PPPs and the role of private sector, land valuation, dealing with unregistered buildings and land, etc.
- Connection to other disciplines—spatial planning; history; sociology; formalizing, registering, upgrading informal settlements; property valuation and taxation; housing; land use planning and development permitting, etc.
