IMPLEMENTATION BASED ON: Effective information dissemination Full participation of people and local authorities Transparency of procedures and fees Good governance measures Team work and team-based results Productivity-based allowances of Land Registration Teams Optimised utilisation of modern information and survey technology as a tool for effective and efficient systematic first registration and maintenance of up-to-date multi-purpose Cadastre

12 5-1 FIELDWORK Public Awareness and Community Participation (PACP)
Land management supporting registration Adjudication Demarcation Surveying Public Display (PD)

Data entry Digitising Preparation of Public Displays (PD): Cadastral Index Maps, Adjudication Records (Lists of Owners) Finalisation of the data after PD Printing of Land Register Books and Cadastral Index Maps (hardcopies) Printing of Land Title Certificates (LTC) Scanning of forms and reference documents

ARCHIVEMENT DUE PROGRAM IMPLEMENTATION(2002-JULY 2012) ~1000 Land Registration Staff Trained and Refreshed (~200 Contractual Staff) ~10000 Administrative Commission Member were trained 2.7 Million Land Parcels Adjudicated 2.1Million Land Titles were Delivered 63% Common Property(HUSBAND & WIFE) husband and wife 20% -25% Wife Property 10%-20% Husband Property CADASTRAL INDEX MAP & LIST OF OWNER ARE APPROVED BY PROVINCIAL GOVERNOR LAND TITLE CERTIFICATE ARE READY TO SECURE YOUR RIGHT ON YOUR LAND


16 A) SECURITY Land Law: Full ownersip Title by registration system
Procedures: Openness, publicity, transparency, full participation Certainty of land ownership and parcel identification: Unique parcel reference numbers Survey accuracy requirements and standards appropriate Seamless Cadastral Index Map Utilisation of IT: Human errors minimised, incomplete data prevented, automated functions Data security measures, back-ups, data access in place CHALLENGE: Registration culture to be created

MLMUPC: Full mandate in land registration: No overlapping reponsiblilities Cadastral Offices at district, provincial and central level Power delegated from central to province level: Procedures simplified and length decreased Public awareness being increased and cadastral forms simplified Technically system is simple and easy to use, easily trained and learned CHALLENGE: Creating a one-stop agency with combined Cadastral and Tax Office functions, minimising inconveniences to the customers to encourage official land registration

18 C) TIMELINESS Cadastre is to be kept up-to-date at all three levels; Province, district and central, Instructions in place All parcels in the registration areas are included in the system Technical updating easy CHALLENGES: It takes still a long time to cover the whole country, work is in the beginning To get informal transactions registered formally Creating a registration culture

19 D) FAIRNESS All landowners are treated equally at first registration
All parcels are included in the system First registration fees are reasonable, fixed, transparent and commonly accepted Equitable access to cadastral services at district, provincial and central levels Delegation of power from central to province level has completed effectiveness and efficiency and simplified procedures Title certificate delivery to the people CHALLENGES: Cadastral service and product fee revision Land valuation system development for fair land-related fees and taxation

20 E) ACCESSIBILITY Cadastre is accessible at district, provincial and central level for private and public sector customers Cadastral fee structure in place CHALLENGES: Definition of fees of all available cadastral products (LASSP ”Map Shop”) Fee revision for cost-recovery and sustainability Fixed, transparent fees Demand for on-line services in Cambodia unknown, access through internet not among the first priorities

21 F) COSTS Costs per parcel have so far been low compared to other countries in the region, partly bacause of the utilisation of IT for effectiveness and efficiency First registration fees low, putting only minor burden to the beneficiaries CHALLENGES: Establishment of a cost-recovery based system so that: Landowners are encouraged to register transactions officially and Utilise available cadastral products that the costs of the first registration and the operation and maintenance costs of the Cadastre are recovered

22 G) SUSTAINABILITY Sustainability of the developed systems is a huge challenge, as in many poor developing countries CHALLENGES: Human resources Financial resources Technical support OPPORTUNITIES: Continuous training New generation professionals Public-private partnerships Land-related fees and taxation for financial sustainability

23 7. Conclusion In fact, land reform surely contributes to achieving national goals of poverty alleviation, ensuring food security, natural resources and environmental protection, national defense and socio-economic development oriented towards market economy”. 4/13/2017
