Results of the sale of state and communal lands: two years of online land auctions

Topics of focus: 
– How did launching online auctions influence the land market?
– Which communities and regions manage to sell land plots through online auctions in the most efficient way?
– How is the land market being transformed under the conditions of war?
– What other lands should be sold transparently via electronic auctions?
– What myths and misinformation exist regarding the work of the land market, how to refute and verify them?

For reference:
An important step for the land reform, which started over two years ago, was the introduction of online auctions in the state electronic trading system Prozorro.Sales in early October 2021.
Ever since, all state and communal lands have been sold according to the same rules. For two years now, this has ensured equal access to assets. In addition, transparent competition helps communities and the state effectively manage their lands and earn money.
