Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources Project

Systematic Land Titling

Medici Land Governance, in partnership with the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, has launched the nationwide roll out of a land titling project targeting four million beneficiaries

On 28th October, 2020, Zambia’s Lands and Natural Resources Minister Jean Kapata launched a project to deliver four million titles under the National Land Titling Programme in partnership with Medici Land Governance.

Ministers of Justice, Livestock and Gender as well as Provincial Ministers from Southern, Copperbelt and Central attended the colorful ceremony in Lusaka, Zambia. Ms Kapata said the project would be undertaken by the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources in collaboration with Medici Land Governance, which would provide all the financing for the roll out, on a fee-based contract. The Minister said it is her Governments desire to see millions of Zambia acquire Certificates of Title in order to have access to finances and security of tenure.

Medici Land Governance’s Country Manager Didier Sagashya told guests at the launch that Medici will strive to promote economic development and full financial inclusion by helping individuals in developing countries to establish formal ownership of their property.

Medici Land Governance on the 18th August, 2020 signed a contract with the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources to issue 4,000,000 Certificates of Title  under the Systematic Land Titling Registration Programme.

This project’s objective supports the National Land Titling Programme’s overall goal of processing and issuing 5 million Certificates of Title in five years.

In 2018 in  our pilot programme we pre-vectorized over 90,000 parcels and collected homeowner data for more than 45,000 parcels that are eligible for Certificates of Titles.

This was accomplished in under 18 months.

This new project will start the process of issuing Certificates of Titles on  State Land in Lusaka and the Copperbelt  and later proceed to other parts of the country.

Objectives

  • Register properties in both formal and informal areas and issue Certificates of Title
  • Provide information on land ownership
  • Create a computerized, sustainable and accessible national land registry

Systematic Land Titling Steps

Public meetings will be conducted to sensitize the communities about Systematic Land Titling

  • Medici enumerators will go door to door to collect data from landowners
  • A two-week verification period will commence in which landowners will verify their details
  • Corrections will be made and the information will be passed on to the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources
  • The Ministry of Lands will process Offer Letters and subsequently Certificates of Title
