The Growth & Employment in States (GEMS) program in Nigeria is a partnership between the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) and the Department of International Development (DFID). It aims to reduce poverty in Africa’s most populous country by increasing growth, incomes and jobs in selected states. GEMS3 works with private and public stakeholders at national, state and local government levels to build and deliver a systemic framework that will help make it easier to do business in Nigeria, leading to lasting improvements in economic opportunities for the poor, especially women. The GEMS3 project addresses issues relating to land, tax and investment.
SCOPE OF WORK
GEMS3 is currently supporting several Nigerian states in an exercise of mass land registration. Processes have been developed in accordance with international standards governing land administration. In Kano State systematic land title registration (SLTR) activity is has now concluded in Tarauni LGA resulting in data on both the physical occupation of land and additional ‘social data.’ This social data is disaggregated by age, sex, education, skills and additional factors such as access to electricity or water at individual locations.
The expectation is to develop a master plan of Tarauni demonstrating the application of data derived from SLTR to implement a master planning strategy that is sensitive to the requirements of both the community and the government. The plan will reflect sustainable improvements in land use predicated on job creation and the better use of urban space. Wherever possible solutions will reflect directly on the Sustainable Development Goals through, for example, improved access to water, education, skills acquisition and sustainable livelihoods.
The Kano SLTR Master Plan Developer will be expected to:
The following attributes are essential:
Strategic master plan for Tarauni LGA including logical justification for all decisions reached together with supporting graphics to a standard capable of being used in presentations to Government level stakeholders. The output must highlight the value of SLTR as a catalyst for change and as a mechanism by which to drive development by both the public and private sector.
