 1. What was the problem before the implementation of the initiative?
Selayar Island Regency consist of islands on remote area, with the limit of transportation causes people reluctant to enroll land certification on land office selayar island regency. On that reason causes had often accepted extremely low number of land deed applications. In one single day, less than 10 (ten) applications combined from all kinds of land administration services enrolled from its local inhabitants. Local residents had lack of interest in registering their lands due to passive conventional approach implemented by previous land certification program, in a way that applicants should come to the office to enroll their land deeds. Furthermore, public in general had negative perspective on land deed enr ollment. They believe that the process would be complicated and take much time. Specific community groups such as poor residents, disabled persons, elderly, and illiterate people who cannot be served normally should get distinctive attention.
