Despite the common seventy-year history, post-Soviet states have differently developed their land sectors. Belarus has also experienced its own way in development of land administration, which might be characterized by domination of state land ownership and underdeveloped land market. The paper aims to address significant changes occurred in land policy of Belarus after declaration of independence in 1991. It particularly concerns innovations in land tenure system, land use planning and taxation, land development and land information. This paper also highlights innovative trends in technologies employed, which improved functioning of the land market. Innovative technologies such as satellite remote sensing, e-services, accurate mathematical models for mass land valuation and persistent data on land transactions are important factors for efficient land management in the country. The paper is finalised by outlining the possible ways to develop sustainable e-enabling land administration in Belarus.
