Land cadastre to be fully developed in Ukraine by 2009

A state land cadastre and an automated system of its implementation will be fully developed in Ukraine by the end of 2008, State Material Reserve Committee Head Volodymyr Voyevodin said.

According to him, 60% of orthophoto maps have been drawn up and ten million documents on the sale and purchase of land have been registered.

Voyevodin said that talks had been held with the World Bank, during which it was agreed that the bank would provide a USD 36 million loan to Ukraine for the creation of a state land cadastre and the purchase of computer equipment.

A total of UAH 60 million was allocated from the Ukrainian national budget for implementing a land reform in 2008. The significant amount of these funds, according to Voyevodin, will be spent on the creation of the cadastre.
