To draw the maximum benefit for a dynamic land market from the cadastre and land registration administration, as well as land use planning and management, the primary requirement is the organisation and human resources supporting real property rights administration.

COWI has through three decades assisted various cadastre and land registry authorities in strengthening their organisations, including streamlining of workflows and processes, drafting of protocols for data exchange, and defining the requirements in terms of staffing and qualification.

This encompasses implementation of large capacity building programmes from training needs assessments to provision of advanced land administration and land management courses.
