The 21st century has been recognized by its remarkable shifts from rural population dominant world to urban dominant. This is more pronounced in developing countries. The consequence of this paradigm shift has created several problems in urban areas such as poverty, slums, informal settlements, and environmental deterioration. All these combined induces stress on the quality of land resources. This raised the question whether concept of sustainable development is going to be realized or not. Land Administration Systems (LAS) along with its core ingredients, land governance and cadastre system, are known to be effective tools in supporting decision making process to avert problems on the land. However, current practices in LAS have shown that they are not capable to cope with the complexities in urban areas due to: poor integration between land governance and cadastre systems and lack of standard cadastre framework in many countries such as Ethiopia. These problems indicate the need for innovative approaches in developing a standard cadastre framework. The study will look into existing cases of land governance and cadastre system of different cities in Ethiopia.
This research is proposed with the aim of developing an integrated conceptual model between land governance and cadastre system based on detailed assessment of existing situations. Next, standard cadastre framework will be developed taking the integrated conceptual framework as a foundation. The study will employ a system approach comprising of both Soft System Methodology (SSM) and Socio-technical Methodology (STM). Results expected from this study include: analysis of existing situation of land governance and cadastre in the case study cities, integrated conceptual framework for land governance and cadastre, and standard cadastre framework derived from the integrated conceptual framework. This research is expected to contribute to new knowledge and understanding in the realm of Land Administration (LA) in general and land governance and cadastre in particular by filling the gaps in knowledge on integrating land governance and cadastre systems during design of standard cadastre frameworks.
Key words: land governance, standard cadastre framework, integrated conceptual framework, LAS
