    • The government and private sector acknowledge the central role of Land Administration in improving land governance and actively promoting it and recognise that the current system is out of date and constitutionally questionable since it does not support the rights of the majority of citizens.
    • The government allocates sufficient resources to policy changes (e.g., a Green and White Paper on LA) and supports land related services such as planning, mapping, recording and registration.
