Sustaining Urban Land Information
This document is intended to support the development of information about land (use, access, ownership, taxation, value, transfer and development potential) in a sustainable and effective way to facilitate urban land management. This framework draws on a range of field operations by UN-Habitat and others. It is the culmination of lessons learnt from a number of case studies covering a variety of developing and post-conflict countries (UN-Habitat, 2012).
The study of countries’ experiences, based on the framework, focused on three main urban land management applications, namely: land administration (security of tenure and property administration), spatial planning (including regional and urban planning, settlement upgrading and regularization) and environmental management and planning. This framework is developed as a normative product in line with UN-Habitat’s Medium Term Strategic and Institutional Plan (MTSIP) and its Enhanced Normative and Operational Framework (ENOF).
