In this blog space in October 2017, we discussed the role of private sector in land administration and mentioned our unit would undertake an assessment and conduct global consultations on the issue. Our idea was to discuss current experience and explore ways to enhance this kind of partnership.
Last month in Vienna, we completed the third consultation where 40-some participants joined us—split equally between government and private sector representatives. This followed two consultations held in Dubai last October and Kuala Lumpur in February.
Our consultations addressed several questions:
• What models of PPP in land administration should be considered?
• What are their minimum requirements?
• What risks are involved and how can they be mitigated?
