The Project Implementation Unit (PIU) of the World Bank supported Liberia Land Administration Project (LLAP) has handed-over 11 new vehicles to the Liberia Land Authority (LLA), a release has said.
The consignment of Toyota vehicles comprises seven pick-ups and four jeeps, which will be used by the LLA to implement activities under the various components of the five-year World Bank supported Liberia Land Administration Project.
According to release, the hand-over ceremony was held at the LLA office in Monrovia.
LLAP Project Coordinator, Louis Jayjay, thanked the Chairman, Dr. Cecil Brandy and other senior staff for the level of support being provided to the PIU.
Mr. Jayjay expressed the hope that the staff will use the vehicles judiciously to enhance the huge tasks ahead in the implementation of the LLAP.
Mr. Brandy, who received the keys on behalf of the LLA, extended thanks to the World Bank for supporting the efforts of the government’s land reform program.
He recounted that World Bank support to the Liberia Land Sector dates back to 2008 with assessments, followed by the Land Rights Registration Project, and now the Liberia Land Administration Project, financed by the Bank with an IDA grant.
This project, which has four components aims to strengthen the institutional capacity of the LLA and the establishment of a land administration system.
