Lawmakers Pledged Support for Passage of the Land Rights Bill - After reviewing key Provisions in the Bill

It was interactive, it was informative, and it was quite rewarding.  On Friday March 27, 2015, the Land Commission held a retreat for select members of the National Legislature on the draft Land Rights Bill.


The retreat took place at the Fairground in Buchanan and brought together members of the House and Senate Standing Committees on Lands, Mines and Energy, Natural Resources and Environment, Internal Affairs, Judiciary and Executive.

Buchanan City Mayor, Hon. Julia K. Bono Mellish, welcomed the officials to the City of Buchanan and wished them fruitful deliberations. 
 

Bong Citizens Laud Land Commission for Criminal Conveyance Law

Since the signing into law the Act Against Criminal Conveyance of Land by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in September 2014, as part of the Land Commission’s resolved commitment to institute realistic reforms in the land sector of Liberia, the Commission continues to receive commendations from various sectors of the Liberian society.  

At a recent community outreach campaign on the Criminal Conveyance of Land Law organized by the Bong County Land Coordination Center, which operates under the auspices of the Land Commission, the citizens of Bong County lauded the Land Commission for being very instrumental in formulating laws that will now punish people engaged with the illegal sale of land regardless of their status. 
 

Recording Tribal Certificate Gains Momentum in Bong - Over 500 Certificates Recorded in Jorquelleh Alone

Little did the staff of the Land Commission Tribal Certificate (TC) recording team know that they could be overwhelmed with huge turnout in Bong County when the TC recording process started on February 18, 2015 in Wainsue Town, the Headquarters of Jorquelleh District-2.  
The Tribal Certificate recording and vetting process, which is now running into a month, is characterized by unprecedented momentum and willingness among the citizens of Bong who acquired land under tribal certificate.
As a result of the eagerness of many people to have their tribal certificate recorded, the TC recording team has already recorded more than five hundred (500) Tribal Certificates just in the two districts of Jorquelleh with eleven districts in the county yet to be covered.
 

Urban Land Inventory Goes to Ganta

 Of the three Cities initially designated by the Land Commission for the implementation of the Urban Land Inventory Project (ULIP), the commercial City of Ganta is the next urban setting that is to benefit from the project.

The inventory exercise has already been conducted in Gbarnga and Buchanan Cities and the outcomes have been rated as highly successful by government authorities and the beneficiaries themselves. 

Discussions have been held with Nimba County officials and Community Leaders in Sanniquellie and Ganta geared towards the successful implementation of the project.
 

Land Commission to Record Tribal Certificates in 4 Counties

The Land Commission (LC) has commenced under the Tribal Certificate Inventory Project, an exercise to record, scan, and validate all tribal certificates that are available in Bong, Bomi, Grand Cape Mount and Montserrado Counties.

Tribal Certificates are documents signed by the tribal authorities and issued by the county land commissioner under the 1956 and 1973 Public Land Sale Laws, certifying the consent of the community to the sale or transfer of land in customary communities.

Land Commission completes Tribal Certificate Inventory Project launch

The second phase launching of the Tribal Certificate Inventory Project has taken place in Montserrado and Bong Counties.

The project is aimed at recording and documenting all tribal certificates in the four targeted counties as part of efforts to establish a comprehensive database of all tribal certificates in Liberia.

It is also intended to enhance the Commission’s land administration policy and land law reformation process including the strengthening of national land rights, record management and registration systems in the country.
