Fit-For-Purpose Land Administration In A Post Disaster Context: Lessons and Applications from Nepal
PDF File Size: 7.88 MB | Download   
Information on people-to-land relationships that is documented in a land administration system is crucial to any recovery from a natural disaster. Fit-For-Purpose Land Administration (FFP LA), with special attention given to the poor and vulnerable in disaster risk management, plays an important role in the recognition of human rights by the governments and local communities before, during and post disaster. This would serve to create resilience of the people affected and to prepare for, mitigate and respond to natural disasters more proactively. This report presents the findings on the implementation of a FFP LA approach aimed at improved earthquake recovery and resilience, specifically for affected communities in four villages in the Dolakha District in Nepal.
The Project ‘Support for Land Reform in Nepal and Land Tenure Initiative’ (SILTIP) implemented tools developed by the Global Land Tool Network (GLTN) that were derived from the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests (VGGT), the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the New Urban Agenda (NUA) and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (UN, 2015) in a post-disaster environment. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with its defined goals, and the New Urban Agenda together with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction stimulate transformative approaches to secure land and property rights for all - especially with regard to land tenure and disaster risk management.
This report shows the application of land tools and the development of land administration strategies for disaster risk management in a post-earthquake context which aim to:
1) support the implementation of GLTN’s FFP LA tool and approaches in Nepal;
2) enable the management and recordation of customary and informal land rights for communities;
3) pilot the use and application of the GLTN tools and approaches, and other related tools in the context of disaster risk management in a post-earthquake, peri-urban and rural setting; and
4) document the processes, lessons learnt and build capacity on its use and capabilities.
The key finding of the report confirmed that a third of the earthquake victims in the project area could not access grants because their land title documents were missing. This highlights that currently not all land rights are recognized in the land administration system and this delays post-disaster recovery and reconstruction processes.
