Bangladesh is a densely populated country with a population of 163 million  and a total land area of 147,570 km2. Arable land (hectares per person) in Bangladesh was last measured at 0.05 in 2011 . The complexity and magnitude of issues pertaining to land administration and management in Bangladesh cannot be overstated. The nature and volume of land disputes in the nation call for practical measures directed at improving the land administration and management system. For example, multiple claims to the same property are widespread. Land grabbing presents serious legal and governance related challenges. Significant number of the urban population live in informal settlements and lack tenure security and access to basic services. In rural areas, landlessness is a serious issue. Improper conversion of agricultural land for non-agricultural purposes adversely affects livelihoods, the environment, and the agricultural economy of the country.
