Centre for Property Rights and Development
The Norwegian Parliament resolved to transfer responsibilities on land registration from the courts to the Norwegian Mapping and Cadastre Authority (NMCA). To implement this decision the Department for Cadastre and Land Registry was established in January 2003.
The growing role of the NMCA as the national professional authority includes participating in international activities. This increasing political attention is honourable for NMCA and demands strengthening of its competence and capacity in order to meet the challenges.
The Centre was established in 2005 under supervision of the Norwegian Mapping and Cadastre Authority (the Department for Cadastre and Land Registry) to conduct activities to meet a growing interest in property rights issues; especially for social and economic development of post-conflict and developing societies. This includes interaction, coordination and involvement of the Norwegian political authorities; educational and research institutions; public aid organisations and professionals in international activities in the relevant field.
The role of the Centre is well known and acknowledged in Norway. The Centre collaborate closely with:
- The Ministry of Foreign Affairs
- The Ministry of the Environment
- The Ministry of Justice
- The Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad)
- Educational and research institutions
- Relevant private companies.
