10 months after its launch, SIGFU, the Integrated Urban Land Management System of Ivory Coast, is almost halfway through its implementation and the results are in. To date, more than 15,000 completed land records have been fully digitised, registered and scanned by 40 Ivorian operators, among the 160 in the project, spread over the 6 production workshops installed in the project’s premises in Abidjan.
“Eventually, more than 100,000 files will have to be processed annually and integrated into the system that will be implemented. To reach this objective, the teams worked actively to finalise the V0 of the system at the beginning of June,” explains Aurélie Milledrogues, deputy general manager at IGN FI, the company that is implementing the SIGFU.
The innovative project for the simplification and digital transformation of urban land tenure initiated by the Ministry in charge of Construction, Housing and Urban Planning (MCLU) and the Ministry of the Budget and State Portfolio (MBPE) aims to simplify the monitoring of procedures undertaken, secure land information and accelerate the process of issuing deeds.
It will also significantly reduce the number of land-related disputes in Ivory Coast and improve the business environment.
