Land Tenure Project in Mozambique
This is the first systematic and large-scale land regularization and titling program in Mozambique. It has been employing municipal and local officials, as well as local citizens to gather data on land occupancy. Technical teams complete land surveys and gathered data on parcel boundaries and occupants. This information is then entered into geographic information system (GIS) and Microsoft Access databases, which are used to prepare a rights registry and DUAT titles. According to the MCC, "results of data gathering and land surveys are posted in the community for public viewing for at least 30 days, giving the community an opportunity to verify or object to the proposed occupant to whom the DUAT title will be issued.
