A two-day orientation training on LLA's approved Operational and Administrative Manuals has ended in Grand Gedeh County

January 30, 2023, Grand Gedeh:  The Liberia Land Authority (LLA) with support from Lantmätarient, the Swedish Mapping, Cadastral, and Land Registration Authority, through the Capacity Building for Inclusive Land Administration and Management Project (ILAMP), has ended a two-day orientation training workshop on LLA's approved Operational and Administrative Manuals.

The development of the manuals was sponsored by the World Bank through the Liberia Land Administration Project (LLAP).

Speaking at the end of the training workshop, LLA Chairman, Hon. Atty. J. Adams Manobah, Sr, praised and thanked Mr. Byren and his team at ILAMP and the people of Sweden for their support. He said the LLA will continue to work with Lantmätariet. Chairman Manobah called on the staff of LLA in the five southeastern counties to continue to work with the local authorities. He further thanked the World Bank and ILAMP for their support. He said at this stage of the implementation of the laws, the LLA can only continue to call on its partners for support. The LLA boss said capacity building is key hence the LLA does not have the resources, and therefore the LLA can only continue to knock on the doors of donor partners to come to the aid of the institution. He further said to ensure the government decentralization agenda is on the right path, the LLA is thankful to the World Bank and Lantmätariet for the renovation of the five-county offices, including the provision of logistics and training. This he said will help greatly the LLA in carrying out its full function thus providing the people of Liberia with the best services. "Once these offices are equipped, staff are trained, and the needed logistics are provided, we are certain that there will be no need for anyone to leave from Grand Gedeh, Lofa, Bong, Grand Bassa, and Bomi to do business at the central office. This is coming to the remaining counties, thus with time". He added.

He further said decentralization is key to Liberia's land sector, hence with support to the land sector, the LLA can do more. He further called on staff to remain active, transparent, and hardworking.

Also speaking at the end of the two days event, Mr. Christopher Byren, Project Manager, ILAMP, thanked the Board of Commissioners and technical staff of the LLA for organizing successfully the orientation workshop for staff of the five southeastern counties, namely, Grand Gedeh, River Gee, Maryland, Grand Kru, and Sinoe counties. Mr. Byren said the ILAMP project will ensure that each of the five county offices renovated by the World Bank is provided with the needed logistics, ranging from motorbikes, solar systems, and other office equipment to enable staff of the counties to work smoothly to meet the needs of those opting for land services.

Mr. Byren further disclosed that all logistics needed for equipping the five renovated offices are in process and close to completion, hence, distribution across the five renovated counties, namely, Bomi, Bong, Grand Gedeh, Lofa, and Grand Bassa counties respectively will commence soon.

He added that the project (ILAMP) has allotted funding for the training of staff from the selected counties, thus his office is working with the relevant department at the LLA to kickstart the training.

The objective: To provide an overview of LLA's approved operational and administrative manuals.
