Some reflections on the instructional seminar, organized today, November 7, 2019, by the Agency for Land Relations and Cadastre with the generic: the execution of the Government Decision no. 24/1995 regarding the content of the land cadastre documentation.
The following topics were discussed at the seminar:
• drawing up the land cadastre for 2019;
• the current changes in the normative acts regarding the regulation of the land relations;
• delimitation of public property land;
• fulfillment of the provisions of the Regulation regarding the conditions and procedures for carrying out the activities of land improvements, protection, conservation and increase of soil fertility, approved by H.G. no. 691/2018.
The responsible persons of the districts in the field of land relations and cadastre attende the seminar. If the methodological and technical aspects of fulfilling these obligations for the majority of participants were clear, then the biggest uncertainties were about how cadastral engineers from LPAs and districts work in the current conditions – after the government reform, when the mandates of some institutions (MARDE, Agency Land Relations and Cadastre – ALRC, Cadastre Department within the Public Services Agency – ASP, Public Property Agency – APP) overlapped. Thus, some of the areas of activity of the ARFC have been transmitted to other central public authorities, which at present do not have the competences and possibilities to administer them, which led to the blocking and creation of bureaucratic impediments. These inter-institutional arrangements have led to a lack of clarity regarding the procedures for the implementation of the World Bank project, which aims to solve the problems related to the admitted errors during land privatisation, especially if the specialists of the districts in the field of land relations and cadastre will not be involved in this process.
Unfortunately, these and other questions remained unanswered.
I want to recall that the Platform of the National Engagement Strategy NES Moldova addressed calls to the President, the Parliament and the Government of the Republic of Moldova regarding their involvement in solving the problem in the field after we detected over one million errors that were committed in the supporting documents, issued in the process of ownership transfer of land and have not been corrected so far. Only the President of the Republic of Moldova reacted and called a meeting of the Government on this issue, but nothing has been decided so far.
We hope that the Government will react on the existing problems related to the reform, the reform that was carried out by the previous government, which instead of solving the problems in the field, has made them even more complicated.
