The Minister of Construction, Housing and Urbanism, Mr Bruno Nabagné KONE, chaired the first meeting of the Steering Committee of the Integrated Urban Land Management System (SIGFU) on 20 May 2022. This committee brings together members of the Government, stakeholders in the urban land chain and their respective Cabinet Directors.
The SIGFU aims to provide Ivory Coast with an administrative and computerised management tool for the urban land chain.
An institutional body for consultation and decision-making, the Steering Committee is responsible for ensuring the achievement of the project’s strategic objectives in accordance with the President of the Republic’s 2030 vision for the modernisation of public administration.
During this first meeting, the Steering Committee was able to learn from the teams about the progress of the file conversion workshops (ACD) and the subdivision plans, as well as the production of 3D data from aerial photographs acquired in the Greater Abidjan and Assinie areas. The major reforms undertaken were also reviewed, in particular the modalities for the operationalisation of the Unique Land Identifier of Ivory Coast (IDUFCI) instituted by decree or the massive titling of urban land parcels.
Operated by IGN FI, the implementation of the Integrated Urban Land Management System is part of the simplification and digital transformation project of urban land initiated by the Ministry of Construction, Housing and Urbanism (MCLU) and the Ministry of Budget and State Portfolio (MBPE). It aims to simplify and accelerate the process of issuing administrative acts, to secure land information by drastically reducing land conflicts and disputes and finally, to improve the business environment in Ivory Coast.
