The Government of Bangladesh has been taking concrete measures to address the problems relating to land administration and management. At the same time, however, the Government recognizes that more needs to be done at the policy level to tackle crucial systemic anomalies. As it stands now, 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 the environment and the agricultural economy of the country. Equitable allocation of state-owned land has yet to take firm root. The legal framework calls for improvement to properly govern the preceding and other related issues.

 

While the useful policy statements should be retained and carried over to form part of a national land policy, the deficiencies and gaps of the policy documents must be addressed.
