Top Ideas for Land Administration

Published by

In June of 2015, Bangladesh Priorities held a roundtable of sector experts to discuss the best solutions for Bangladesh’s land administration. Combined with in-depth interviews and review of the 26 background studies of the 7th Five Year Plan (7FYP) and the Plan itself, the most notable ideas focused on: creating a digitized and integrated land record collection system, increasing number of judges for dealing with land related litigations, introducing a national level alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanism for land disputes, using village courts to settle disputes related to boundary, extracting accurate estimate of khas land.
