At its thirteenth session, with decision 13/109, the Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management reiterated that the Framework for Effective Land Administration (FELA) is an important element of the work of the Committee of Experts and provides a valuable step forward in assisting and guiding Member States when developing, strengthening and modernizing effective and efficient land administration. The Committee encouraged its Expert Group on Land Administration and Management to work through its identified inventory of issues and to consider the roles of effective land administration in the area of climate and the integration of the terrestrial, maritime and cadastral domains, including through collaborative activities with functional groups and partnering international organizations. The Committee also noted the intention of the Expert Group to convene its next meeting, together with an international seminar on effective land administration, in Mexico in April 2024, in collaboration with a number of regional cadastral organizations.

The fifth meeting of the Expert Group on Land Administration and Management is hosted by the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía) of Mexico and will also incorporate the Second International Seminar on United Nations Global Geospatial Information Management with the theme "Effective land administration". This in-person meeting allows members of the Expert Group together with invited experts to review, discuss and consider a number of substantive items that are presently before the Expert Group.

The International Seminar on United Nations Global Geospatial Information Management with the theme ""Effective land administration", will provide an open forum for dialogue and deliberating key considerations leveraging the nine pathways of FELA to provide the reference and guidance for Member States when establishing, strengthening and modernizing their land administration nationally or sub-nationally. This International Seminar seeks to share and exchange knowledge, information and experience, facilitate peer-to-peer engagement and learning; promoting and raising awareness of the merits and benefits of effective land administration; accelerating efforts to recognize and record people to land relationships in all its forms; addressing climate-related challenges and improving resilience including the technical complexities around the land/sea interface; and broadening perspectives in effective land administration.
