South Africa is characterized by farming systems that yield marginal returns only. Due to the lack of a proper functioning land registration system, small-scale farms cannot serve as collateral. These farmers do not dare to invest if their land is not registered. As a result, upscaling their activities to reach improved livelihood and employment opportunities is out of reach. The proposed intervention aims, therefore, to prepare a proposal for a pilot project that implements a land administration prototype system in South Africa. This pilot should be based on a solid understanding of the context of land administration systems in South Africa and have the necessary commitment from relevant stakeholders. This prototype system contributes to building a reliable land administration system for effective land reform, land rights governance and economic development.
