Project General Description

This Cadastral Survey Modernization Support Project is designed to support Government efforts to modernize cadastral survey, State property and land registration activities with a view to improving internally-generated resources mobilization and the business climate. The project is in keeping with the National Good Governance Program (NGGP) which is a pillar of the poverty reduction strategy. One of the objectives of the strategy is to create wealth by establishing an enabling environment for private sector development and improvement of internally-generated resources mobilization. The project should concentrate on cadastral survey, State property and land registration activities, all three characterized by the obsolescence of texts and ignorance over the actual land situation, the scarcity of resources in various government departments and the unsuitable organization chart of the General Directorate of Tax and State Property (Direction Générale des Impôts et des Domaines, DGID). The intervention comprises three (03) main components, namely: (i) strengthening the capacity of the Cadastral Survey Office; (ii) capacity building with regard to State property, tax system verification, administration and coordination; and (iii) project management.

Project Objectives

The project’s sector objective is to contribute to good governance by improving the mobilization of internally-generated resources and the business environment with a view to sustainable growth that would have a significant impact on poverty reduction. Specifically, the project aims at contributing to the digitization of cadastral survey to ensure more effective control with a view to improving access to ownership and fiscal revenue.


The project’s direct beneficiaries are 70% of Senegal’s population who live in the forty urban localities, the local governments in the forty urban localities, the local departments, the regional cadastral survey offices, the Central Cadastral Survey Office, the Directorate of Registration, State Property and Stamps (DEDT) and the Project Implementation Unit. Moreover, the Directorate of Verification and Tax Investigations (DVEF), the DGID and the computing center should also benefit from the Bank’s support.
