This publication is the result of cooperation between the World Bank and the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) over recent years to address the issue of building and sustaining land administration systems that are basically fit-for-purpose rather than blindly complying with top-end technological solutions and rigid regulations for accuracy. The cooperation started by the joint FIG / World Bank conference in 2009 addressing “Land Governance in Support of the Millennium Development Goals”.  The concept of “fit-for-purpose” emerged from various events indicating that land administration should be designed to meet the needs of people and their relationship to land, to support security of tenure for all and to sustainably manage land use and natural resources.

Julie Hyun Sook Lee has communicated with many in the FIG community during her 1-year stay at the FIG Office

I have spent a year in FIG office in Copenhagen, Denmark and am about to leave this beautiful country.
When I was a freshman in University I have studied about “Cadastre 2014” and “FIG” from the text books and journals. I had no idea what would happen in 2013 to me!
My Company (LX Korea Cadastral Survey Corp.) and Korean government had a long term plan for capacity building with International relationship with many other organizations such as World Bank and UN, and of course with FIG! Our former president, Young Ho, Kim, had an idea how to contribute from Korea to help the FIG Office. We stunned and hoped to get a chance to have an opportunity to get an internship in FIG.
