Korea to con­duct fea­si­bil­ity study to es­tab­lish land data sys­tem in SL

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - NEWS -

The Korea Ex­im­bank is fi­nanc­ing a com­pre­hen­sive fea­si­bil­ity study to es­tab­lish a Land Data In­fra­struc­ture (LDI) and Land In­for­ma­tion Ser­vice Sys­tem (LISS) in Sri Lanka as a grant un­der its tech­ni­cal as­sis­tance scheme, the Korean Em­bassy said yes­ter­day.

The in­au­gu­ral meet­ing of the fea­si­bil­ity in­cep­tion was held on May 21 at the Land and Par­lia­men­tary Re­forms Min­istry with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of Min­istry Sec­re­tary W.H. Karunarath­na, Coun­try Di­rec­tor of Colombo Korea Ex­im­bank Daekyoo Park, Sur­veyor Gen­eral S.M.P.P. San­gakkara and ex­perts of the fea­si­bil­ity study team.

If im­ple­mented, the project will en­able the Sri Lankan Govern­ment to in­te­grate the land par­cel fabrics into LDI and LISS and en­hance the abil­ity to man­age the city ad­min­is­tra­tion us­ing land in­for­ma­tion ser­vice sys­tem for 24 mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties

In a state­ment, the em­bassy said the study would be com­pleted by Oc­to­ber 2019. Based on the out­come of the fea­si­bil­ity study, the Korean Govern­ment will con­sider ap­prov­ing the Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Co­op­er­a­tion Fund (EDCF) for project im­ple­men­ta­tion within the year.

The fea­si­bil­ity study con­sul­tant, Korea Land and Geospa­tial In­for­matix Cor­po­ra­tion (LX) Con­sor­tium, has dis­patched a team with rel­e­vant ex­per­tise to an­a­lyse the sta­tus and re­quire­ments of the project, es­tab­lish a tar­get model for the pro­posed project, cal­cu­late the es­ti­mated cost for project com­po­nents and set oper­a­tions and a man­age­ment

It will im­prove the ac­ces­si­bil­ity to land in­for­ma­tion for the var­i­ous users and en­hance ef­fi­ciency of spa­tial in­for­ma­tion man­age­ment through NSDI

plan for es­tab­lish­ment.

The con­sul­tant is also ex­pected to an­a­lyse the pol­icy and le­gal, tech­ni­cal and eco­nomic fea­si­bil­ity of the project and to de­vise project per­for­mance indi­ca­tors.

If im­ple­mented, the project will en­able the Sri Lankan Govern­ment to in­te­grate the land par­cel fabrics into LDI and LISS and en­hance the abil­ity to man­age the city ad­min­is­tra­tion us­ing land in­for­ma­tion ser­vice sys­tem for 24 mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties.

“It will also im­prove the ac­ces­si­bil­ity to land in­for­ma­tion for the var­i­ous users, en­hance ef­fi­ciency of spa­tial in­for­ma­tion man­age­ment through Na­tional Spa­tial Data In­fra­struc­ture (NSDI), max­imise util­i­sa­tion of land data, in­crease the ef­fi­ciency of is­su­ing land ti­tles and grants, and strengthen the rev­enue gen­er­a­tion of mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties,” the em­bassy said.
