||This paper presents the current status of land information management system in Uganda, the different problems faced with the system and the practical solutions to the problems. Land is the basic element of development and more especially in developing countries such as Uganda. A good land administration system is a prerequisite for proper land management and information about parcels of land is the basis on which a good land administration and land information system can be built. In this review, issues and problems pertaining to land information management in Uganda are examined. The roles of various stakeholders, the nature and format of the information are discussed and how handling of this information has affected land administration in Uganda. Furthermore, the various efforts being taken by the government of Uganda in addressing land administration problems are highlighted. Finally, possible solutions to the land information handling problems in Uganda are proposed.
