Mozambique’s land administration modernisation

November 13th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Esri has implemented the Land Administration Modernization Program (LAMP) at the National Directorate of Lands (DINAT), the land administration organisation under the Ministry of Land, Environment and Rural Development in Mozambique. The programme aims to help developing countries jump-start and modernise their land administration systems. DINAT needed to conduct field data collection and maintain its system of records, and expediting the process of land-use regularisation is a priority for the agency. So, DINAT applied for assistance in fulfilling its overall mission of ensuring the access and rational use of land for the economic, social, and environmental benefit of present and future generations of Mozambicans. The programme has enabled the organisation to meet the challenge of comprehensive land governance with effective policies, processes, and tools that can identify, record, and disseminate information. Using the tools and apps of Esri’s ArcGIS platform, DINAT is making land administration business processes more efficient and productive, as well as improving parcel data accuracy. Additionally, Esri’s Living Atlas of the World geographic data content and mobile apps are providing a crucial utility in this process. Learn more at
