UN Habitat Valuation Manual published promoting IVS as the basis for the valuation of unregistered land.

In many developing countries, only 30 per cent of land rights are registered (UN-Habitat/ GLTN and IIRR 2012) and the rest are unregistered lands that may be held by poor people. Yet there is a dire need for governments and individuals to be able to value these lands. Valuation is necessary to improve control over land and property in a way that builds equitable access to financial services and mobilises resources for economic growth and poverty reduction.
