Landgate shares its knowledge with the Philippines
Landgate is sharing its digital disruption experience with land administration professionals from the Philippines.
The Philippines Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and Local Government Unit (LGU) employees are taking part in a fellowship at Landgate funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
Landgate has been a global leader in land registry disruption. It brought the 19th century, paper based Torrens title system into the digital age through the development of its New Land Registry (NLRTM). This award-winning cloud-based platform has led to numerous improvements including better document turn-around times.
Our guests will learn about the registry as well as participating in leadership, innovation and business development training.
Henry Pacis from The Philippines’ DENR said he was looking forward to expanding his knowledge of land administration during his time with Landgate.
“Land administration in the Philippines is undergoing major reform,” Mr Pacis said.
“Spending time at Landgate is helping us update our vision for the future because we are gaining useful information about Landgate’s technology, people and processes.”
Mr Pacis’ colleague Gina Pascua said she was benefiting from the fellowship.
“I’ve had the opportunity to take part in professional development such as leadership training that will help me pursue my career goals, and ultimately benefit the community in the Philippines,” said Ms Pascua.
“That, along with learning more about Landgate’s mapping and planning technologies, will be extremely useful to me and my country.”
