Developing an integrated land management information system (ILMIS) for Tanzania

Barney Laseko, Laizer Apollo, Aurélie Milledrogues, Carol Roffer, Christopher Burke

Tanzania has not been able to tap many opportunities presented by its land resources because most of the land is not yet planned, surveyed and registered. The process of land parcel registration is complicated and expensive. The Government is committed to land-related reforms and to economic and public sector change as a firm basis to achieve the envisaged strategic development objectives. The design, supply, installation, and commissioning of the Integrated Land Management Information System (ILMIS) project will fully integrate all aspects of land management in two stages: the Pilot Stage and the Development Stage. Service delivery will start with business units in the Eastern Zone and the Ubungo and Kinondoni Municipal Councils and the roll-out to the rest of the country will commence on completion of the pilot stage in July 2018. This paper and presentation will provide insights into the pilot implementation of ILMIS comprising land administration, survey and mapping, registration, valuation and planning.
