A workshop titled “Introduction to the Integrated Land Management Information System (ILMIS) Project” was held at Kilimanjaro Hyatt Hotel, Dar es Salaam on 24 November 2017. The primary objective of the workshop was to introduce the ILMIS Project to the appropriate representatives of the Dar es Salaam City Council, and Kinondoni and Ubungo Municipal Councils. The workshop was facilitated by the Director Kinondoni Municipal Council to raise awareness and understanding of the ILMIS and the benefits of this initiative among stakeholders who participated including the newly appointed Permanent Secretary at Ministry of Finance Dorothy Mwaniyika, who officially opened the workshop.
MLHHSD engaged the consortium led by IGN FI to implement a pilot initiative to design, supply, install and commission ILMIS with support of the World Bank. The initiative is being implemented in the MLHHSD Headquarters in Dar es Salaam Zonal Office and currently being piloted in the Kinondoni and Ubungo Municipal Councils. ILMIS will fully integrate the Registration of Titles Unit (RTU), Land Administration Division (LAD) and Surveys and Mapping Department (SMD). It will also support the process of transforming land records and maps into digital formats. The initiative commenced in July 2016 and is on schedule to run for two years until July 2018 followed by a one year maintenance period before being up-scaled nationally in the next phase of the project.
The first Capacity Building Workshop was held on 29 September 2017 at the New Africa Hotel in Dar es Salaam and focussed on raising awareness of ILMIS and potential interfaces among approximately 50 senior MLHHSD representatives and external stakeholders from various ministries, Government Agencies and public institutions.
