Bertinoro Initiative 2000:
Enhancing Land Registration and Cadastral Systems in Countries in Transition

The 2000 Bertinoro International Seminar

26 - 30 November 2000
Bertinoro, Italy

The "Bertinoro Initiative" was started by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Government of Italy to assist transition countries in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) in their development of effective land tenure and land administration systems. The "Bertinoro Initiative 2000: Enhancing Land Registration and Cadastral Systems in Countries in Transition" is directed towards building capacity in land administration agencies in CEE countries, thereby enabling them to provide the services needed to support sustainable development.

The immediate objective is to identify training needs of land registration and cadastre agencies in CEE countries and potential strategies for meeting those needs. A longer-term objective is to use the needs identified at the Seminar in discussions with other parties regarding the development of courses. The participants in the seminar consisted of high-level experts from Albania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Hungary, the Republic of Macedonia, Romania, the Russian Federation and Ukraine.
