Government develops comprehensive approaches and systemic measures in land relations

To reformat the work and provide the population of the regions with pastures is the task of the Commission for the withdrawal of unused and irregularly issued lands for 2024. What has been done in this direction and what is planned was discussed at the regular meeting of the Commission chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Serik Zhumangarin.

The recently adopted Law on Pasture Use provides all these opportunities to meet the needs of regional residents in places for grazing, fairly redistributing the returned lands and strengthening the fight against soil degradation. The Government is developing a number of comprehensive approaches and systemic measures to address the accumulated issues and improve the situation in the land sphere. Among them are the transition to a paperless format of service provision and automation of the procedure for granting land plots. It is expected that the digitisation of all procedures related to land issues will eliminate corruption prerequisites and strengthen local accountability. 

In Kazakhstan, the information system "Unified State Real Estate Cadastre"  was launched in 2023. In Astana, Almaty, Shymkent, cities of regional and district significance, an electronic procedure for granting land plots has been introduced by law. Digital agricultural maps are being created. A total of 145 million hectares of agricultural land were digitised last year, which is 77% of the agricultural area of our country. It is planned to complete the digitisation of agricultural land in 2025. 

In addition, on the basis of the automated information system of the state land cadastre (AIS GZK), work is being carried out to improve functions in the sphere of land relations carried out on paper. At the meeting the Commission considered the main difficulties arising in the process of integration of information systems.

"The withdrawn lands should first of all reduce the deficit of pastures for residents of villages and districts. Remote pastures should be utilised. Prepare options on how to do this for the next meeting. There is also need to ensure planned management of pastures, pay attention to preventing their degradation and accelerate the pace of addressing digitisation issues in rural areas. It is necessary for Ministry of Digital Development, Innovations and Aerospace Industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan together with the MPS and Akimats to work out the existing shortcomings of the information system of the Unified State Register of Natural Resources, ensuring its technical readiness," Serik Zhumangarin emphasised.
