The World Bank, through the Liberia Land Administration Project (LLAP), is supporting the Government of Liberia to strengthen the capacity of the Liberia Land Authority (LLA) and establish a land administration system. The Project is financed through a World Bank grant of US$ 7 million. The project started in March 2018 and expected to close in October 2022.
The LLAP has four components. Component 1 (Support to the Liberia Land Authority) will focus on: developing land laws/regulations and administrative procedures; developing business systems, plans and processes, and a strategic investment strategy for financial sustainability; capacity building; communication and awareness raising; and acquisition of office equipment, furniture, supplies and vehicles necessary for conducting the work of the LLA and the Project. Component 2 (Support for inventory and analysis of tribal land certificates) will support an inventory of tribal land certificates in several counties and the establishment of a database for further analysis. Component 3 (Development of a land administration system) will support assessments and pilots to determine the best methods for collecting, recording and managing land rights information; establish a geodetic network, and support land valuation and management of government and public lands. Component 4 (Project Coordination, Monitoring, and Evaluation) will support the project implementation, including the establishment of a Project Implementation Unit (PIU).
