This paper develops a methodology for the evaluation of land administration systems. The authors propose a set of quantitative and qualitative indicators with benchmarks for each one of them that signal possible venues to improve the administration's structure and budgetary/management arrangements, in order to bring about the following goals: to contribute to public sector financing through taxes; to encourage the productive and sustainable use of land, and to facilitate access to land for low-income citizens. This methodology was applied to the cases of Honduras and Peru in order to refine the draft evaluation indicators, while evaluating the systems of both countries. Here they present the final refined indicators and benchmarks, and the conclusions from both case studies.
