The Liberia Land Authority (LLA) and the World Bank will jointly launch the Liberia Land Authority Project today, Thursday, 19 April at the World Bank Liberia Office, German Embassy Compound, Tubman Boulevard, Monrovia.
According to a World Bank media advisory, the LLAP will also establish processes and infrastructure required to implement land policies and laws focusing on identification, ownership, use and valuation of land.
The Bank says this will lead to the development of requisite land laws and regulations, and conducting awareness campaigns on land rights and usage, and establish an inventory of tribal land certificates in the country.
The LLA Chairman, Dr. Cecil T.O. Brandy, and World Bank Liberia Country Manager Ms. Larisa Leshcenko will participate in the exercise. Meanwhile, recent data point to a moderate strengthening of economic growth in Sub-Saharan Africa in early 2018, according to the new Africa’s Pulse.
Africa’s Pulse is a bi-annual analysis of the state of African economies conducted by the World Bank. Growth is expected to pick up at 3.1 percent in 2018 and a firm average of 3.6 percent in 2019 -20, the Bank says.
