Land Administration for Sustainable Development
|Land Administration for Sustainable Development examines global land administration systems at different levels of maturity. This examination elucidates how countries can establish basic infrastructure for the implementation of land-related policies and land management strategies that will help ensure social equality, economic growth, and environmental protection. Through its presentation of a holistic view of land management for sustainable development, this book outlines basic principles of land administration applicable to all countries and their divergent needs. Land Administration for Sustainable Development is a resource for professors and students of land planning, land administrators, land planning managers, and government officials.

Ian, Stig, Jude and Abbas. Congratulations.
Although I have read this excellent book more than 18 months ago, I have only just stumbled across this short note in “Coordinates”. In my view, this is the most comprehensive publication on land administration systems and of course its important contributions to SDI and spatial enablement of government and society (SEGS). I do hope softcopy becomes available so it can receive even wider distribution – perhaps some more generous support from ESRI?
I think a softcopy version could also be adapted for a modularized training package. This would make an even stronger contribution to knowledge building,
Given the constant advances to geospatial technology that Uni Melbourne’s CSDILA will be able to update it in the next year or so – hopefully with some more generous support from ESRI.
