The Ministry of Urban Development and Construction (MoUDC) signed an agreement with the Ethiopian Mapping Agency (EMA) on January 8, 2013 for the registration of land and land-related fixed assets.
The agreement, signed by the Minister of MoUDC, Mekuria Haile, and the Director General of EMA, Sultan Mohammed, for an undisclosed sum, will oversee a cadastral survey on 23 major regional cities located in the Oromia, Tigray, Harari and Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Regional states, as well as the Dire Dawa City Administration.
The cadastral survey shows the extent, value and ownership of land and is shall be used for various purposes, including verification of ownership and taxation. Kassahun Gofe, Head of the Public Relations Office at the MoUDC, said the agreement, which excludes the capital city, Addis Ababa whose cadastral map survey will be undertaken by the city’s administration, will help the transitioning to a digitized version, streamlining operations and making the work of the said authorities much easier.
He also said, once the new registration of land and land-related fixed assets is completed in the next eight months, it will allow citizens to properly utilize their property gained through legal means without interruption and interference.
The groundwork for this agreement had already been established with the Ministry in collaboration with the Information Network Security Agency (INSA) conducting an aerial photographic assessment.
Kasshun also said that many land property in Ethiopian cities have been subjected to illegal and wasteful practices, because of the lack of a modern and streamlined land administration system.
The Ministry said the execution of the new agreement would also help in the implementation of the new land lease proclamation relating to Urban Land Lease Holdings.
The Ethiopian government introduced the contentious proclamation last year with the stated aim of reducing illegal practices with regard to falsification and distortion of title deeds related to ownership issues, and to assess the value of plots and track the transactions of land and land-related fixed assets.
