Land governance across borders or transnational land governance looks at rule making, standard setting and institution building. In the IGAD Region, national organization as a structuring principle of societal and political action can no longer serve as the orienting reference point. This creates the need for increased cooperation among nations. With the support of the Swedish Embassy, IGAD seeks to improve the performance of the land administration function in the IGAD region moving closer to convergence and enabling the implementation of cross border initiatives that have a bearing on land. In this regard, this technical guide on the establishment and modernization of the geodetic reference frameworks seeks to provide an understanding of geodetic reference frameworks and to provide practical steps and approaches for the establishment of geodetic reference frameworks within the IGAD region.

The working draft of the guide was initially developed by a team of experts from Technology Consults Ltd. This draft was shared with the IGAD Land Governance Unit which provided useful suggestions and comments that were incorporated into an improved draft that was rigorously discussed in a 5-days hackathon by a team of land professionals from the IGAD member states. Based on the proposals and comments from the hackathon, a final draft of the technical guide was validated by a team of experts from the IGAD member states.
