The Constitution has a number of provisions on Land Administration and Management There was a provision to put in place the Land Act within two years of coming into force of the Constitution The Land Act was enacted in1998 Although the spirit of the Land Act 1998 was to ensure a fully decentralized Land Administration and Management system , it created a massive implementation structure - difficult to implement After review of the Land Act 1998 a 10 year Land Sector Strategic Plan was developed A number of strategies were adopted under the LSSP to review the policy and legal framework, protect rights of vulnerable groups, improve Land Services delivery through Modernization of the Land Registry, support decentralized Land Administration institutions among other things

4 Activities Implemented Under the LSSP
Development of a National Land Policy and Land Use Policy Review of the Legal Framework Survey of some Government Land Implementation of the Land Fund Provision of Public Information on Land Rights Development of Strategies for Protection of Rights of Vulnerable Groups Alternative Land Dispute Resolution (Land Tribunals, Local Council Courts)

5 Activities Implemented Under the LSSP (Contd)
Systematic Adjudication, Demarcation, Survey and Certification/Registration of Land Rights Development of a Land Information System Support to Decentralized Land Administration Institutions (DLOs, DLBs, DLTs, ALCs, LC Courts)

6 DeSILISoR Project (“Design, Supply, Installation, Implementation of the Land Information System and Securing of Land Records”) This project aimed: -To contribute to the establishment of the efficient land administration system in Uganda -To facilitate and improve the delivery of basic land services in Uganda -To improve land tenure security 6

13 Categories of transactions

14 CHALLENGES Poor state and quality of the records
Maintenance challenges : basic infrastructures, power and connectivity Slow adaptation of the Ministry structure to the new working environment requiring new or differently skilled personnel, staff structure Reluctance to adopt new business processes Lack of an effective communication Legal and regulatory framework were not fully consistent with LIS operational framework 14

15 LESSONS LEARNT The institutional arrangement for implementation should be kept simple and easy The Infrastructural arrangements should be completed ahead of actual installation of the LIS - that includes Construction of Buildings, LAN, WAN Connectivity etc.. Information, Education and Communication campaigns to support the LIS development and implementation - should be carried throughout the development and implementation process 15

All project components which are necessary for the design development and implementation of the LIS should be handled simultaneously Training and Capacity building should start as soon as the equipment installation is done for usability and sustainability Wider involvement of stakeholders to ensure the early buy-in and ownership of the System 16
