Some Aspects of Land Administration in Indonesia: Implications for Bank Operations

Publication | July 1994

The paper attempts to highlight some aspects of the current land administration system which cause delays and are of direct relevance to the implementation of ADB-assisted projects particularly in Indonesia.

Land issues in most countries have major social and economic implications, more so in rapidly growing economies such as Indonesia. ADB's post-evaluation findings reveal that a large number of ADB-financed projects across sectors is seriously affected by land acquisition difficulties.

The paper attempts to highlight some aspects of the current land administration system which are the causes of such delays and are of direct relevance to the implementation of ADB-assisted projects, with particular reference to the issues of land registration and land acquisition. The paper suggests that ADB should provide financial assistance to Indonesia to accelerate the process of land registration and titling as well as provide technical assistance for codifying and simplifying the laws and procedures with regard to land transfers and use.
