Likewise, the project facilitates the ANDF's implementation of the Land and Land Code for sustained implementation of the land reform in Benin. Thus, strategic support and coaching is deployed to strengthen organizational capacities (institutional and personal) and develop a viable and sustainable economic model for ANDF. The ADNF is expected to be able to provide all of the services and products under its jurisdiction, which in addition to strengthening its legitimacy will ensure its revenue streams. Furthermore, land administration operates through a variety of stakeholders, each with a specific role. If they assume their respective roles and cooperate with each other, this will allow the data collection process to function ideally and boost the national cadastre. These processes and mechanisms are therefore essential for good cadastral administration. The cadastral chain of actors must therefore be functional, operational and efficient. Improvement opportunities will be identified during "chain tests" to be carried out and capitalized.
At the heart of all this, the project will pay particular attention to ensuring that the interests of disadvantaged groups are translated into concrete policies and actions. This will involve participatory decision-making methods but also lobbying and advocacy on behalf of these groups for the development of a national cadastre meeting the needs existing in all their diversity.
The expected results of the project are:
A. The national cadastre is available, functional and durable
B. The ANDF implements the national land and state policy in accordance with the Land and Land Code (CFD) and in a financially viable manner
C. The actors in the chain know their role and cooperate in the implementation of data collection processes according to the selected and approved methods
D. The interests of disadvantaged groups are translated into policies
“Working in and with fragile states gives us the perfect opportunity to build back better. Crisis recovery goes beyond the provision of immediate relief: it includes the rebuilding of infrastructure, the provision of basic services and the strengthening of people’s resilience to deal with future crises. In this, local government is essential. “
