The Technical Secretariat of the Integrated Urban Land Management System (SIGFU) project held its second meeting on Tuesday 16 May 2023 at SIGFU headquarters. Chaired by Mr DIALLO Abdoulaye, Director of the Domaine Urbain, this working session provided an opportunity to discuss a number of key issues relating to the SIGFU project, such as Mass Titling, the Data Exchange Protocol, the use of the Geographic Information Referential on a national scale, and the implementation of electronic signatures.
The key events concerning Massive Titling are the immediate application of decree no. 2021-784 of 08/12/2021 (immediate generalisation without waiting for the conclusions of the pilot phase) and the publication of order no. 0029/MCLU/CAB of 20 April 2023 determining the procedures for issuing the final concession order.
The Data Exchange Protocol is currently being drawn up in order to formalise the types of data expected from each administration, as well as their formats in accordance with the various procedures, with a view to their integration into the Land Information System (LIS).
With regard to the reflection on the use of the Geographic Information Repository on a national scale, the objective is to have up-to-date urban cartography available for the setting of land parcels and topographic controls via aerial photography. To achieve this objective, a number of actors have been involved, including the Topography and Cartography Department, the Urban Estate Department, the Land Registry, the Urban Sanitation and Drainage Department and the National Office for Technical Studies and Development (BNETD).
On the subject of electronic signatures, participants were informed that the Ministry of the Civil Service (MFP) has initiated a project to use electronic signatures in the processing and issuing of administrative documents. The first phase of the project has been running since April and will end in June 2023, a period of three (03) months. This pilot phase will take into account certain procedures of the Ministry of Construction, Housing and Urban Planning, implemented as part of the SIGFU project.
For the record, the implementation of the Integrated Urban Land Management System (SIGFU) is part of the project to simplify and digitally transform urban land management, initiated by the Ministry of Construction, Housing and Urban Development (MCLU) in collaboration with the Ministry of the Budget and State Portfolio (MBPE). It aims to simplify and speed up the process of issuing administrative deeds, make land information more secure by drastically reducing land disputes and litigation, and improve the business environment in Ivory Coast.

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.
