Dear Colleagues

Thank you Aslam, for sharing the document.   It being a "Final Report", is
it still open for comments and discussions from the public?  If yes, where
can comments be lodged?

Kind regards,

PS, we are excited about the Position IT publication of an article on our
ScoutMaster App -  land use survey  that was done for Ekurhuleni and Mogale
City...check it out at  Position IT article

> Dear colleagues
> The  Final Report of the Presidential Advisory Panel on Land Reform and
> Agriculture is available at
> https://www.gov.za/sites/default/files/gcis_document/201907/panelreportlandreform_1.pdf
> I would like to encourage everyone to  engage with this document, as its
> recommendations will have a profound effect on policy, legislative
> initiatives and the future of South Africa and economy.
> We as Geomatics practitioners can either play a pivotal role and shape
> this evolving discussion or sit back and let events overtake us.
> The summary of views on the very topical issue of expropriation of land
> without compensation is in Part 6, page 66 - 76.
> The first recommendations, amongst many,  of the panel is a *
> Consolidated Integrated Planning and Land Information System*. The
> recommendation (for immediate action) requires that we develop a single,
> national data portal (Land  repository or Observatory) for all land related
> information as the first step towards developing infrastructure for the
> ultimate integration, holding and maintaining of all land rights records.
> Through this, begin to populate an integrated land e-cadastre with all
> other land-based information contained in separate government registers
> (water rights, land claims, mineral rights etc.). *This establishes the
> foundation for a comprehensive land recordal and administration system,
> linked with a need for a reliable land audit.*
