In Tanzania, the village of Msinune, in Kiwengwa Division, Bagamoyo district in Coast region, is the first village to benefit from the Integrated Land Management Information System (IMLIS). The pilot stage will be implemented for the rest of the rural areas of the country. At the occasion of a visit in Msinune, Serge Wlodarczak, the IGN FI project manager, insisted on the multiple added values directly generated by the implementation of the system. “The system, he said, will contribute to have well-define property rights and to establish true ownership status. The land records will be preserved and the corruption in land occupancy will come to an end. Eventually, the whole registration process will take only few days”.
He concluded by explaining the Msinune villagers that “once the project is implemented, the land will have more value because a lot of problems related to land occupancy will be solved automatically”.
Funded by the World Bank, the ILMIS project is aimed at easing the management of Tanzanian land while facilitating access to information for population. The initial phase of the project includes the design, development, customization, build, installation of ILMIS, support efficient administration of cadaster and real property registration at central, zonal and district level.
The ILMIS project finally aims at contributing to create reliable land administration services for the customers and improving public confidence in the land administration services. (Cf : Read the article « When land digital system thrilled Msinune villagers » – Tanzania – Sunday News – 11/02/2018.)
