Systematic Land Titling Updates

Update on National Land Titling Programme in Zambia
Medici Land Governance has so far captured 35, 148 properties and land owners information in the second phase of the project in 35 areas within Lusaka province. So far, over 3000 Certificates of Title have been issued out to their respective owners as of March 2021.

Medici Land Governance together with the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources has also distributed 12,768 Offer Letters to landowners whose details were successfully captured and verified. The aim however, is to increase distribution, through a community issuance exercise of Offer Letters signed in March which will include about 2,419 parcels that have been freed from barriers.

Meanwhile, Medici Land Governance throughout the month of February and March conducted a drone mapping exercise to collect aerial imagery for property mapping and Systematic Land Titling in five districts which are Kafue, Chilanga, Rufunsa, Luangwa and Chongwe within Lusaka province. From the the aerial imagery captured, an estimation of 91,115 parcels are expected to result into title deeds.

The project which is being undertaken by Medici Land Governance and the Ministry of lands and Natural resources targets four million beneficiaries under the National Land Titling program.

Steps of the data collection process

Data collection is the first step for a landowner in the process of acquiring a Certificate of Title under the National Land Titling Programme.

Enumerators wearing green T-shirts, carrying a work ID and an introduction letter from the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources go door to door to capture landowners property documents and verify boundaries. The data capturing process takes less than 3 minutes to complete. 

The following are the steps taken:

  1. Enumerator checks if landowner has the correct documentation which is their National Registration Card (NRC) and any of the following documents as proof of ownership:
    • Invitation to Treat
    • Offer Letter
    • Land record card
    • Occupancy Licence
    • Utility Bill (electricity, water)
    • Council Rate Bill
    • Letter of Sale
    • Deed of Gift
  2. Enumerator checks property boundaries
  3. Landowners details and documents are captured
  4. Other beneficiaries are included and captured, these could be spouses, children over the age of 21 or any other beneficiaries to the property
  5. Images of the property are taken
  6. Landowners append their signatures

Medici Land Governance urges all Landowners to adhere to Covid-19 guidelines during this process.
