Envisaged Outcome 1:
Demonstrate alternative (rapid and effective) methods for land administration in pilot areas
This PDF shows the men/women division regarding land ownership in the different villages in the pilot areas. The tables show a more or less equal gender presence.
The public inspection forms part of the Fit-for-Purpose (FFP) methodology.The Colombian village Costa Rica (municipality Vistahermosa) is one of the two pilot regions of the Land In Peace project. The video shows the public inspection in the village, the last step in FFP before formalisation of land. During the public inspection the community gathers to check the data collected in the field.Land owners sign by agreement in front of the whole community.This is the basis for a reliable land administration. After the public inspection we have a map with the different colors of the boundaries.We hand over this data base to the National Land Agency in order to continue with the legal process and the land formalization. The vast majority of the neighbors is agreeing on their boundaries. Less than 1% of the boundaries in 6 pilot areas was ‘red’ (disagreement on boundaries). 99% of the boundaries were ‘green’(agreement on boundaries).
Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte, ANT president Myriam Martinez and the Colombian Minister of Agriculture Andres Valencia handed out the first 17 land titles to peasants in the municipalityof Apartadó. Read here more about this event.
In the first project year pre-pilots were carried out to test and fin tune a fast, affordable and participative approach for land administration in rural post conflict areas. This annual report presents the actual developments of the project, the results so far and the upcoming challenges.
