Media Key In Handling Land Governance - Brandy 
By Stephen N. Sonpon

MONROVIA, October 6 (LINA) – The Chairman of the Interim Land Task Force (ILTF), Dr. Cecil Brandy, has said the media has a major role to play in ensuring that citizens have a better understanding of land policies, administration and management systems.

According to him, ILTF will therefore host the first National Media Conference on Land under the theme, "Scale up reportage of good land governance" on Friday in Monrovia.

Brandy said the conference will be a milestone for Liberia and will allow an inclusive dialogue between the media and land stakeholders.

Speaking Thursday at the Ministry of Information regular press briefing in Monrovia, Brandy said the conference will also center on how the media and land stakeholders can work together in enhancing information dissemination and exchange in Liberia’s land sector relative to good land governance.

He noted that the conference will bring together reporters, writers, editors, publishers, station managers, and other media practitioners and major stakeholders in the media and land sector across the country.

He said the conference is sponsored by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Land Governance Support Activities (LGSA).

Brandy said LGSA is a five-year funded project that supports the establishment of more effective land governance systems to implement comprehensive reforms and improve equitable access to land security tenure for all.

“We need to understand the issues in the Land Rights Bill and the Land Authority Bill, so that the ordinary man in the village will understand too,” he noted.
