Land matters

Sep 2008 | Comments Off on Land matters


From the role of land administration in sustainable development…

To the promotion of effective land markets.

e-land administration, land registration, cadastral surveying and mapping.

Poverty reduction and protection of vulnerable groups.
A range of issues.

The 14th PCIGIAP meet at Kuala Lumpur discussed and deliberated all.
Another step in a long journey…

The journey which is difficult and tortuous.

Understandably, when one deals with issues pertaining to land.
An increasingly scarce resource.

Hence, conflict among ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots’.

Spatial technology is a powerful tool in this context.

Especially to take care of interests of the marginalized and vulnerable.

Ironically, the technology itself becomes vulnerable.

At times, it sides those who own it.
