This is a paper from FIG Commission 7 Symposium on Cadastral Systems in Developing Countries,1997 published by FIG. http://www.fig.net/commission7/reports/events/penang97sympreport.htm
A key objective of this paper is to show the increasing importance of cadastral reform in economic development, social stability and environmental and in particular the requirement for institutional reform in achieving such these reforms. This is achieved by briefly reviewing key UN initiatives over the last five years, such as the Earth, Social and City summits. The paper argues that cadastral reform requires a national commitment by governments to strategically manage the reform process. Central to this reform process are a range of economic, technical and institutional issues. From an institutional perspective, the cadastral surveying and mapping, and land registration functions in government, are also developing close strategic alliances or are merging. The paper concludes by identifying a range of key issues which must be addressed if the above initiatives are to become a reality. In drawing conclusions the paper draws heavily on the Statement on the Cadastre developed by the International Federation of Surveyors and the Bogor Declaration, which resulted from a joint meeting of cadastral experts brought together by the United Nations, the International Federation of Surveyors and the Indonesian Government.
