Reviewer comments

"Bolivia has a decentralized cadastre, survey and registry system, made up of: (1) the INRA, which is responsible for rural cadastre registry; (2) a formal Cadastre Unit responsible for maintaining, developing, and executing the urban cadastre registry; (3) the municipal governments, which maintain local registries; and (4) the Property Rights Registrar. The Registrar registers urban and rural land ownership, has regional locations, and is under the management of the General Direction of Public Registration. The Vice Ministry of Housing and Urbanism within the Ministry of Public Works, Services and Housing is responsible for the regularization and registration of urban land, particularly clandestine properties (Chemonics 2005).
Customary institutions that often assume a role in land matters include indigenous councils of elders and leaders, religious leaders, unions, and leaders of land movements. Local Rural Development Councils (Consejo de Desarrollo Agrario Local – CODAL) are local-level decision-making bodies comprised of representatives from the Department of Natural Resources, municipal officials, and organized civil society from the rural labor confederations (World Bank 2005; World Bank 2007).
