Cadastre and land register

Cadastre and land register

The countries in the Danube Region have been making great efforts in developing land register and cadastre over the last years but a total coverage has not been reached yet. Efficient land register and cadastre structures are the key for legal security and prevention of corruption. Albeit the legal framework is different in each country, they can still be compared. For example, in some countries administration is centralized while in others it is handled by regional bodies. However in all countries land register and cadastre is already documented electronically.
PAC 10 of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region has started different activities to support and strengthen the capacities of land register and cadastre systems in the concerned countries with the support of the KDZ – Centre for Public Administration Research.
