LLA Chairman Calls For Promotion Of Women's Land Rights In Liberia

Buchanan City, Grand Bassa County:  The Chairman of the Liberia Land Authority (LLA) Hon. Atty. J. Adams Manobah, Sr., during his opening remarks at the just ended Gender Mainstreaming Workshop for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Community Base Organizations (CBOs), Local Journalists, and Persons Living with Disabilities (PWDs) in Grand Bassa County called for more awareness on Women's Land Rights in Liberia as enshrined in the Land Rights Act (LRA) of 2018.

Chairman Manobah said gender balance in Liberia's land sector is key to the national developmental agenda of the country, thus it has a great way of ensuring that women living in rural communities' land rights are protected. He said right to land ownership is not limited to a particular group of Liberians. The LLA boss said whether you are a Person Living with Disabilities or woman living in the rural areas, the law signed on September 19, 2018 by H.E Dr. George M. Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia, and printed into handbill October 10th, 2018, have come to protect the rights of all Liberians.

"Land ownership is not for one person hence for all Liberians. Women, youth, and persons living with disabilities have the right to own land in Liberia. No one can prevent what the law has established." He added.

The LLA boss further expressed thanks and appreciation to the organizing team and Lantmätariet/ILAMP for the support. He said this training and all other training are very relevant to the country's land reform.

Chairman Manobah used the time to call on local journalists in Grand Bassa County, including journalists from across the fifteen subdivisions of Liberia to continue to help the LLA promote women's land rights in their counties.

The training which commenced on May 16, 2023, and ended on May 18, 2023.
