Kandal trains officials as land registration push continues

The Department of Land Management, Urban Planning, Construction and Cadastral Affairs in Kandal province urges all relevant officials and registration teams to make more efforts to speed up systematic land registration.

The call came at a May 25 training course for local administrative committees on land registration in Koh Thom and Sampov Poun districts.

Teang Kosyara, deputy director of the provincial land management department, said that after the training, officials would be able to assist the cadastral officers to measure land for the people in the days to come.

“We held this training to make the administrative committees aware of their roles and responsibilities in implementing the systematic registration of land. The more people who have clear land demarcation markers, the less conflicts between neighbours will occur,” he added.

Kosyara called on all village and commune chiefs to inform the public that they should prepare all of the documents they need to have their land measured, so cadastral officials will be able to issue land titles as early as possible.

Koh Thom district governor Chhe Vanndy said that after completing the course, the administrative committee members had gained the knowledge they would need to assist with the land registration work in a systematic, efficient and transparent manner.

He also backed the calls for local authorities in the district to encourage the public to work with their neighbours to mark the boundary of their property.

To date, the provincial administration has issued 260,745 land titles. It plans to issue an additional 160,000 titles.
