The module 5 corresponds to the Fiscal, Financial and Economic Analysis (FFEA) of LAPs which contains elements of the three main modules.

Module 5: Fiscal Financial and Economic Analysis (FFEA)

The results and impacts chain of FFE benefits

Land Administration Projects (LAP) are investment initiatives that aim, over a limited time and with a set budget, to strengthen the LAS of a country or a given geographical area within a territory. LAPs intervene at different levels (see the tool structure) and include a variety of activities (see the respective modules) to strengthen LAS. Various LAP activities achieve effects and results that have economic, financial and fiscal effects for the country, and these can be quantified and monitored.

These effects include the following in particular:

  1. Titling and other forms of land tenure regularization (see module 2).
  2. A modernized LAS through increasing the efficiency, effectiveness, transparency and decentralization of land administration institutions (LAI) (see module 2).
  3. Updating land tenure information at territory level (see module 2 and module 3).
  4. A greater understanding among the population of how LAIs work and what they do (see module 2).

LAP activities have two key results which produce a causal chain of economic and financial benefits. These are: the issue of new titles and the issue of real folios. These are the culmination of the RCT process of property. The issue of new titles refers to the transfer with full tenure of land owned by the state to an individual, in common (couple or family) or a group of people (communities, indigenous territories, cooperatives, etc). Real folios apply to private properties whose title has been checked against the cadastral information in an RCT process. From now on, any reference to RCT will relate to processes that result in both types of documents, real folios and new property titles.
