Land Registration using aerial photography in Namibia: Costs and lessons


The Namibian Communal Land Administration System (NCLAS) has been concurrently developed to provide an improved means of storing digital data on communal land rights. It is not only more secure and accessible, but also reduces the time that is required to process the data by half. By the end of 2007, less then 1% of the estimated total number of land rights in communal areas had been registered. In 2008 a further 5% of the estimated number of land rights was registered. With the information gained from this improved performance, a roadmap has been developed and plans are being prepared to register all existing communal land rights by the end of 2012.
