Amid conflicts between multiple counties within Liberia over boundary divisions, a cartographer at the Liberia Land Authority is calling for a nationwide ground survey of all boundary lines across the country.
After an intensive three-day dialogue, Sinoe and River Cess have signed a resolution aimed at settling a longstanding border land dispute between the two counties.
The Liberia Land Authority has launched its official website in a bid to fulfill requirements by the Millennium Challenge Corporation to provide accessible information to the public on land rights.
Last year, Liberia scored a milestone achievement by adopting its first, ever Land Rights Act that recognizes community land ownership. At the time, international organizations and rights campaigners, including Welthungerhilfe, welcomed the country’s achievement, describing the law as one of the continent’s most progressive.
A documentary on land issues in Liberia, titled “The Land Beneath Our Feet,” is expected to be launched locally over the next couple of days.
