Abstract

Moroccan land and real estate are characterized by a large number of properties and an advanced and varied typology. Among the related shortcomings is how to identify various land statuses and the stakeholders in the sector. These characteristics of land are multidimensional, including urban, suburban, and rural; land use plan; lands under formal and informal registration systems and multiple regulatory frameworks; the importance for the state, the public, and private individuals; regarding its heritage, urban planning, and taxation; the development projects in each sector; etc. The complex character and distinct fields of land administration in Morocco necessitates the creation of a unified and standardized land data model for use by all public and private actors who have a relationship to land. The present study contributes to the perception of an applied taxonomy and aims to define the basic concepts of the land domain ontology. Such expertise is a prerequisite for land governance and land policy that integrate land and real estate into national development processes.

Land Policy And Land Governance

Land policy is defined as the set of rules and administrative practices governing, in the framework of public intervention on private rights, the rights of ownership, the forms of access and use of land, and the transfer of rights to land. A land policy includes conceptions of citizenship, the public interest, and land governance. The latter is the set of rules, procedures, and structures that define and organize access to land, its use and transfer, and the resolution of land conflicts (C.T., 2009).
