It would be hard to imagine a society without property rights as a basic driver for development and economic growth. Land and property is not only an economic asset; secure property rights provide a sense of identity and belonging that goes far beyond and underpins the values of democracy and human freedom.

The Know Edge Consortium specialises in providing expertise in National Land Information Systems (LIS); providing strategic guidance, supporting procurement of LIS solutions and managing their implementation in support of security of tenure and an efficient land market.

contracted to evaluate the
effectiveness of Land Administration interventions through aid provided by the EU and the Swiss Government.
