Land Regularization and Administration Projects: A Comparative Evaluation

Feb 2014
The main objective of this evaluation is to identify elements that have contributed to the greater or lesser success of a number of land regularization and administration projects; it also seeks, on the basis of these, to identify aspects of both design and execution that warrant special attention in order to make these projects more efficient, effective, and sustainable. The secondary objective is to provide information on the performance and outcomes of the projects evaluated. The evaluation is based on a number of selected projects that are not representative of the full range of Bank activities in this area, and its conclusions are limited to the scope of those projects. The evaluation does not, therefore, claim to offer conclusions that can be extrapolated to all such activities, or to make any judgment about the future relevance of land administration projects in the region.
