The Chairman of the National CPD of the Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers (NIESV), ESV Dr. Mark Emmanuel Thursday revealed that Land Administration Systems (LAS) are an important infrastructure that facilitates the implementation of land policies globally.
He said LAS is concerned with the legal and economic framework that guides the operations of land managers and operators.
Emmanuel disclosed this at the 2022 MCPD of the Abuja (Unity) Branch.
“Land Administration Systems are an important infrastructure which facilitates the implementation of land policies in both developed and developing countries, he said.
“It is concerned with the social, legal, economic and technical framework within which land managers and administrators must operate”.
Emmanuel also stated that the present age is one when science has become the provider of growth and abundance, used to correct anomalies.
“It is true that the older generation had greater respect for land and science but, we live in an age when science, more than land, has become the provider of growth and abundance.
“And for us to correct these anomalies, land must be at the front burner of our discussions as Estate Surveyors and Valuers, he stated.
He continued by adding that new solutions in land administration are required to deliver security of tenure for all and can be quickly developed and incrementally improved overtime.
