Rotterdam: The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Kadaster joined forces to advocate the worldwide registration of land use and property rights in the short term. The cooperation has been officially announced as the Partnership Land Administration for National Development (LAND). The purpose of LAND is to support start ups for fast, cheap and reliable land registration in countries that have a need for this. The new approach will focus on the demand for the registration of land and in a later phase on further development and refining. Its main goal will be to offer security on ownership of land and on how citizens can and may use their land.
