‘Land Administration Challenge To Land Transaction’ – Pres. Sirleaf

By Prince Nagbe/LINA

MONROVIA, January 19 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson has said the administration and management of land are current challenges to ensuring equal access, security of tenure, and the rule of law regarding land transactions in the country.

She said the government recognizes the extent and seriousness of these land tenure issues, which need to move towards a more equitable system of land rights, modern and re-organized land administration system and development of the requisite capacity to evolve such a system.

Since its establishment, the Land Commission has made significant progress in fulfilling its key mandate to undertake necessary policy and law reforms such as the formulation, validation and adoption by the Government and people of Liberia a National Land Rights Policy.

Others include the drafting of a Land Rights Act that is now before the National Legislature for enactment as well as the formulation of a draft Land Administration Policy, which amongst several recommendations will declare the government’s intention to establish a dedicated land agency.

The Commission is also developing policies and drafting laws for Urban Land Use and Land Dispute Resolution, among others, according to an Executive Mansion release issued at the weekend.
