Governance, Policy & Institutional Strengthening
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Department of Lands (DoL) needs to modernize service delivery and improve land-related databases to ensure up-to-date and accurate land and property ownership systems are in place. The World Bank, through the project funds for the "Enhancing Systematic Land Registration Project" are supporting DoL system upgrades.
The overarching project objective is to accelerate and scale-up systematic land registration and modernize land services, which is predicated upon the application and deployment of information communication technology (ICT) to improve the land information infrastructure and enhance service delivery.
The supporting Lao Land Registry (LLREG) aims to support property registration and a seamless operating environment capturing new registrations and transactions on existing properties. This consultancy focuses on future LLREG functionality, efficiencies, and financial viability to ensure long term sustainability. A 10-year strategy will therefore be prepared based on the initial audit of the LLREG and various systems deployed throughout the Provincial and District offices.
Options for efficiency gains, improvements, standardization and sustainable deployment of ICT within the Laos land sector will offer the possibility of enhanced land-based services and improved tenure security to the citizens of Lao PDR.
