Land Tenure: the allocation and security of rights in lands; the legal surveys of boundaries; the transfer of property through sale or lease; and the management; adjudication of disputes regarding rights and boundaries. Land Value: the assessment of the value of land and properties; the gathering of revenues through taxation; and the management and adjudication of land valuation and taxation disputes. Land-Use: the control of land-use through adoption of planning policies and land-use regulations at various levels; the enforcement of land-use regulations; and the management and adjudication of land-use conflicts. Land Development: the building of new infrastructure; the implementation of construction planning; and the change of land-use through planning permission and granting of permits.

12 It is all about: People, human rights, engagement and dignity Politics, land policies and good governance and Places, Power, shelter, land rights, and natural resources decentralisation and empowerment
13 Land governance Land governance is about the policies, processes and institutions by which land, property and natural resources are managed. This includes decisions on access to land; land rights; land use; and land development. Land governance is about determining and implementing sustainable land policies.
14 Understanding the Land Management Paradigm Land Management includes all activities associated with the management of land and natural resources that are required to fulfill political objectives and achieve sustainable development.

16 The Educational Profile of Cadastral Surveyor FIG/CLGE seminar, Delft, 2000
17 Regional Development strongly supports regional organisations in surveying and land management, that can facilitate professional development in response to regional needs, such as in Asia, Latin America, Arab Countries, Africa In Europe where institutions and systems are generally well implemented, the focus is mainly on adjustment, improvement, capacity building, public/private partnership, education, CPD, professional and ethical codes of conduct, mutual recognition, etc... - the bar can not be set too high Europe is a very strong partner a role model in building the global standing of the surveying profession
18 Global Partnership on Land Governance is strongly committed to the MDGs and the UN-Habitat GLTN agenda No development will take place without having a spatial dimension No development will happen without the footprint of the surveyor
19 Facing the new challenges Focusing on land Governance and achieving the MDGs, also includes facing the big challenges of the new millennium: Climate change Food shortage Energy scarcity Urban growth Environmental degradation Natural disasters Global financial crisis All these challenges relate to governance and management of land Land professionals play a key role

22 The Social Tenure Domain Model More than 70 per cent of the land in many developing countries are outside the formal systems of land registration and administration This relates especially to informal settlements and areas governed by customary tenure Traditional cadastral systems do not provide for security of tenure in these areas.

24 Climate change - The world in terms of carbon emission Climate change - The world in terms of increased mortality
25 The impact of climate change The interaction between climate change, ecosystem degradation and disaster risk, UNEP, 2009
26 Climate Change No matter the inequity between the developed and developing world in terms of emissions and climate consequences, there is a need to develop relevant means of adaptation to climate change both in the rich and the poorer countries. Sustainable Land Administration Systems should serve as a basis for climate change mitigation and adaptation as well as prevention and management of natural disasters. Incorporating climate change into current land policies Adopting standards for energy use, emissions, carbon stock potential,... Identifying prone areas (sea level rise, drought, flooding, fires,...) Controlling access to and use of land in relation to climate change and disaster risks Controlling building standards and emissions in relation to climate change Improving resilience of existing ecosystems vulnerable to climate change
28 Disaster risk prevention and management Humanitarian actors are often confronted with land issues when undertaking emergency shelter and protection activity. The information on the people to land relationship is crucial in the immediate post disaster situation. Disaster risks must be identified as area zones in the land-use plans and the land information system with the relevant risk assessment and information attached. Measures for disaster risk prevention and management should be integrated in the land administration systems Post Disaster Land Guidelines developed by UN-Habitat/FAO
29 The Agenda Flying High - Global partnership with the UN-agencies incl. the World Bank in support of the global agenda such as the MDGs Keeping the feet on the ground - Professional and institutional development at regional, national, and local level in support of the needs of our member associations and individual surveyors.
30 The role of intend to play a strong role in building the capacity to design, build and manage Land Governance systems in response to Climate Change and in support of the Millennium Development Goals Building the capacity for taking the land policy agenda forward in a partnership with the UN agencies and the World Bank
31 Key message Simply put, sustainable development requires sustainable land administration systems Land professionals play a key role
