Welcome to the registration website of the UNECE Working Party on Land Administration (WPLA) and UN FAO joint workshop in Baku on 29-30 October 2015.
The workshop will be hosted by the UNECE Working Party on Land Administration (WPLA), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (UN FAO) and the State Committee on Property Issues of the Republic of Azerbaijan (SCPI).
The theme of the workshop is “Development of key registers in land administration in the UNECE region”.
Land administration itself contains both spatial information (e.g. on land parcels) and administrative information (e.g. property rights). In addition, land administration has important relationships with other key registers in the (spatial) information infrastructure, some of which are spatial (e.g. topography, buildings), while others contain administrative information, like names of persons, addresses, or names of companies. It is therefore important to have unambiguous definitions of the contents of these key registers in order to avoid overlap and to enable reuse of information. Further, due to continuous updating of these independent, but related, key registers care has to be taken to maintain consistency, not only within one database, but also between databases.
The purpose of the workshop is to share experience and practices in key registers enhancement within the framework of land administration. The workshop will cover issues of key registers development and maintenance, the use of information technologies aimed at improving the key registers, as well as issues of information interaction between subjects of land administration.
Participation at the workshop is free of charge.
The workshop will be held in English. The simultaneous translation in Russian and Azerbaijani and vice versa will be provided.
