A Senior Agriculture Specialist at the World Bank, Dr. Abimbola Adubi, has disclosed that the World Bank in collaboration with the Government of Liberia is preparing a new project to strengthen the country's land administration and management capacity.
Dr. Adubi said one of the key features of the project will be to support capacity building to create the critical mass of cadre of professional and technical skills needed for an efficient and effective land management system.
According to the Liberia News Agency, Dr. Adubi made the disclosure Monday at the Ministry of Lands, Mines and Energy on Capitol Hill during programs marking the opening of the Government of Liberia and World Bank-funded Land Cadastre Training Center.
Dr. Adubi, who deputized for Ms. Inguma Dobraja, Country Manager of the World Bank office in Liberia, said it is critical that such effective collaboration continues to support the Liberian government in its effort to create and sustain a functional land administration system.
He added that this was also a critical element of the socio-economic development of this country, adding, "The World Bank is committed to such collaboration because we realize that the land sector challenges are complex and require coordinating efforts."
