This report looks into the question of how RBF can be a useful tool in helping secure tenure and property rights, as well as streamlining the titling process, modernizing land administration services, enhancing land administration staff' capacity and ongoing training, and improving the relationship with clients -- all of which inspire confidence in governmental institutions dealing with tenure and property ownership issues. This report also looks into the test case of applying results-based payments for improvements in systematic land registration in the West Bank.
