Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 22 / Trend A.Akhundov /
The State Committee for Land and Cartography of Azerbaijan is negotiating with the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs of Korea to expand the scope of the project to improve the system of land cadastre in Azerbaijan, the Committee's chairman Garib Mammadov told reporters on Wednesday.
Under the project, the State Committee and the Ministry signed a protocol of understanding in October, 2011. Azerbaijan was then provided with technical assistance to draw up a map of 1000 hectares of land in the Khazar district of Baku and also given a grant of $1.5 million. This was signed for 18 months to deliver the project 'Improvement of the Land Cadastre of Azerbaijan'.
"We want to expand the geography of the project first for the entire area of the Khazar district and then cover the whole of Baku. This requires the support of $3 million for one district and $40 million for the whole capital. In this regard, we are in talks with Korean experts, and preliminary agreements have already been made," Mr Mammadov said.
He said the period of implementation of this project depends on the technical assistance to be provided to the State Committee. The land cadastre includes five basic elements: the state register, the registration of volume and quality, cadastre of environmental indicators of land, land valuation from an economic point of view and map development.
