FINNMAP has strong experience of services in the field of land administration. Our expertise derives from technically and legally advanced land administration in Finland, which has been successfully combined with FINNMAP's long experience overseas. The FINNMAP approach in land administration combines global experience with local culture and knowledge. The land administration reforms have potential for reducing poverty, improving environmental management and promoting democracy. Apart from expanding the land record coverage, a successful reform improves security, transparency and equality in land owning matters.
The land administration projects have usually three dimensions: social, judicial and technical. On the social side, FINNMAP provides policy, socio-economic and economic expertise relying on both international and local pool of experts, which cover the economical, social and technical areas of expertise. Often these experts contribute to the preparation of a land policy, which forms the crucial base for land administration.
FINNMAP has developed cost effective methodology for systematic parcel-by-parcel land registration. The latest surveying technology is cutting the costs to a minimum. Project designs are simple. As a result after a comprehensive training the local personnel with locally available technology have properly executed land registrations with minimum cost.
The registration systems often need to be reviewed and reformed. Quite normally, the records are administered by various organizations causing unnecessary bureaucracy. FINNMAP has facilitated land administration integrations resulting in savings, improved updating and wide access to records.
