FIG Publications are fit-for-purpose teaching material

3-14 November 2014 a short course in New Approaches in Land Administration and Cadaster was organized in Mozambique at the Institute for Land Administration and Cartography (INFATEC). A group of 20 teachers from this vocational training institute participated in this training- of trainers program offered by the School of Land Administration Studies, Faculty ITC, University of Twente, the Netherlands. The FIG office supported the course by making available relevant FIG Publications including the recent publication on Fit-for-Purpose Land Administration. The publications served as excellent teaching material as was reflected in the lively debates in class about the fit-for-purpose concept. It inspired the teachers of INFATEC to strengthen their program in land administration and cadaster. The participants and course organizers from INFATEC and ITC – University of Twente are therefore very grateful to FIG for supporting the course by sending copies of the publications for all participants.
