Adapting Taiwan’s experience to transform land administration in St. Kitts and Nevis

Adapting Taiwan’s experience to transform land administration in St. Kitts and Nevis

The International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF) and our partner country St. Kitts and Nevis jointly launched the St. Kitts and Nevis Land Administration Information System Project on June 29, 2018. Considering that the scope of land administration includes land registration, land survey, land evaluation, land use processing and case management, it is important that the project coordinator and stakeholders have a concrete understanding of the digitization of land management operations at the early stage of the project. Therefore, the TaiwanICDF invited Ms. Flora Diana Francis, permanent secretary of Minister of Justice, Legal Affairs & Communications and Ms. Dawn Myers, the registrar of lands, to learn about Taiwan’s experience in land administration and information technology from August 10 to 30.

During this period, the two officials attended classes on land (real estate) registration, cadastral survey, land tax, land valuation and land administration information system at National Chengchi University. They also visited the Land Administration Bureau (Taipei City Government), Shulin land office (New Taipei District), National Land Surveying and Mapping Center (Ministry of the Interior), Land Administration Bureau (Taichung City Government), and Department of Land Administration MOI, which gave them a comprehensive grasp on land administration operations and management practices in Taiwan. Moreover, the officials were able to observe actual processes of land registration, land surveying, cadastral map digitization, and archive management of cadastral drawings so that they can gain new ideas on formulating relevant land administration policy in St. Kitts and Nevis.

The main objectives of the project are to assist the country in integrating land management operations, reducing manual processing of information and establishing standard operations of land survey. Exchange of practical experiences and professional technical training will be included during project implementation to improve project effectiveness.
