Public blacklist of unscrupulous land users to appear in Kazakhstan
Minister of Agriculture Saparkhan Omarov presented a package of measures that significantly increase the efficiency of managing agricultural land, Strategy2050.kz informs.
According to the Minister, most of the changes are related to digitalization and introduction of new technologies. This makes the relationship of agricultural industry participants transparent, simple and effective.
Over the past three years, the Ministry of Agriculture has taken certain successful steps. For example, a digital land registry has been created. Now the Ministry of Agriculture clearly knows the area of each field, pasture, garden or haymaking in each particular region, as well as each land owner.
The digitized arable land includes more than 290 thousand fields owned by about 80 thousand people. Their total area is 26 million hectares. 132 thousand pastures belonging to 49 thousand Kazakhstanis were also digitized. The digital agricultural cadastre is available to everyone on the qoldau.kz website.
“We are gradually translating the state policy and management in the field of land relations into a digital format. Nowadays we have a Situational agrocenter with actual data. The online cadastre allows us to set up total monitoring and control over the use of each plot of land. Every day we see changes in each field and pasture: plant vegetation, soil temperature, air, moisture in the soil, rainfall, chemical composition and weediness. Therefore, we always know how long the land is being used or idle”, Saparkhan Omarov said during a briefing at the Central Communications Service under the President of Kazakhstan.
In addition, the Ministry has fully automated the processes of subsidizing agribusiness entities. In the near future it is planned to publish books about the history of fields and pastures in the public domain, create a public register of unscrupulous land users and prohibit giving subsidies to those land users who have fallen into this blacklist, introduce uncontested electronic land tendering by 2021, completely resolve the communication issue in the fields and on pastures, create a full-fledged system of “big data”, which will quickly and accurately analyze and predict the situation in the agricultural sector.
Minister Saparkhan Omarov also said that the package of measures to increase the efficiency of agricultural land management includes some legislative initiatives of the Ministry of Agriculture. So, to accelerate the removal of unused plots, the Ministry has prepared a bill proposing to transfer to the Ministry of Agriculture the functions of state control over the use and protection of land, and also to increase the base tax rate on unused agricultural land by 20 times.
