Land administration

All developing countries recognize the importance of governance and the rule of law as one of the most important prerequisites for successful social and economic development. However, given the fact that the institutional mechanisms are specific to each individual country, and there is no single guideline for assessing the quality of land administration, the World Bank experts and its partners have developed a single tool for assessing the quality of land administration.

This study was conducted at the global level by Land Equity International (Australia). Four countries were selected to conduct the study and test the land administration quality assessment tool: Peru, Kyrgyzstan, Tanzania and Indonesia. The main selection criteria for these countries were the presence of different categories of land resources and forms of management, including formal and traditional forms of management.

Research and testing of the tool in Kyrgyzstan was carried out by experts from the Rural Development Fund. As part of testing the methodology, the following studies were carried out:

After that, an in-depth analysis of the materials received was carried out and the corresponding ratings were assigned to the assessed aspects.
