UMLIS in Accra

Swedesurvey had a contract with the Government of Ghana for the development of an Urban Management Land Information System (UMLIS) for a selected pilot area in Accra. The main objective of the project was to develop a tool for local governments in Ghana which will help them to efficiently collect land rents as well as other municipal fees. The project owner was the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development (MLGRD) in co-operation with Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA).

An important part of the project was capacity building of the local staff involved in the project. Swedesurvey’s local partner in Ghana, GEO-TECH Systems Ltd., was involved in the implementation of the project.

The project was financed by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and the Government of Ghana.
