Following the NATO-led operations in Kosovo in 1999, UN-HABITAT were tasked by UNMIK to provide support in restoring the cadastre in Kosovo, and assist the institutional development of a centralized registry of land and property records. The Kosovo Cadastral Support Programme was devised in collaboration with the governments of Sweden, Switzerland and Norway, to backstop the development of the Kosovo Cadastral Agency (KCA).
The KCA has subsequently been mandated by the United Nations Interim Administration in Kosovo (UNMIK) to oversee the rebuilding of the region’s property registration system. Property records across the Province have been consolidated and stored in a central database. Extensive field and aerial surveys are complete across the entire province, and functional operations developed within the 25 target municipalities.
