Addressing Policy Gaps in the Land Administration System

The land administration system in the Philippines can be described in two words: multiple and complex. The whole system has been governed by multiple laws, regulations, processes and standards, and has been managed by multiple institutions with limited collaboration. At such, the performance of government agencies undertaking land administration functions are hampered by the structure and operation of administration system which further result to other problems such as: a) multiple standards for mapping and surveys, multiple forms for title certificates, multiple standards for land valuation and multiple taxes on land ownership and transfer. There has been a long-standing efforts to streamline the country’s land administration system but without much legislative success.
