Strategic Plan for The Implementation of Land Laws (SPILL)
As a rule of thumb, the implementation of the new land laws and their regulations is contingent upon the institution of an effective and efficient land administration machinery that is facilitated by a well-established land administration infrastructure (LAI). Such LAI includes standards and processes for land delivery and control and is based on information technology to underpin the definition, allocation, transfer, use and markets in land parcels and properties thereon. The LAI includes adequate offices, design studios and laboratories equipped with appropriate technologies for information gathering, storage, display and dissemination.
In terms of the activities assigned to the lands sector, LAI includes:
- the national spatial data infrastructure (NSDI) and its component parts namely, land, geographic, and management information systems (LIS, GIS and MIS);
- land-use maps and plans;
- master-plans and strategic urban development plans (SUDP);
- geodetic and topographic (framework) data;
- base and land cover maps (thematic data);
- cadastral survey data and plans;
- valuation and other operational manuals;
- facility for land allocation and land registration processes;
- settlement layout (TP drawings) designs;
- property registers and
- adequate transport and communication systems.
Equally important, the effective implementation of the land laws is contingent upon availability of appropriate capacity within the land administration machinery and levels of public education and awareness creation and enhancement (PEACE).
