1.The Government of Uganda through Ministry of Lands Housing and Urban Development (MLHUD) has allocated resources to design, develop and implement the National Land Valuation Information Management System (LVIMS). THE Land Valuation information Management System shall among others host updated indicative land and property values, property yield, GIS, Physical plans and various reports for the country. The dissemination of land valuation information shall improve availability of comparable data used by both public and private practitioners. In turn, access to information shall minimise speculations in valuation for acquisition of land for Government projects. The system shall improve the management and collection of taxable and non-taxable revenue. Additionally, LVIMS will contain up-to-date data on land values, infrastructure, utilities and property yields, reports etc. This information shall assist Government in decision making on matters pertaining to resource allocation, service provision, physical planning, environmental management, land use zoning, mining and taxation, environment and social risks assessments, resettlement, etc. The background to the development of the LVIMS is anchored in the dire need by Government to address valuation variances and implement valuation standards in Uganda. Furthermore, the introduction of the Land Information System left out valuation workflows which have largely remained manual. Whereas valuation in many developed economies has been modernised through establishment of robust Land Valuation Information Management Systems, valuations in Uganda are still rudimentary. Earlier benchmarking consultations with the Royal Institute of Charted Surveyors (RIGS), University of Reading in the United Kingdom, Government of Mauritius, Government of South Korea and FIG Conference Istanbul Turkey, 2018 have all pointed out the glaring need to establish a Land Valuation Information Management System.
