Upper East inaugurates oversight committee on Land Administration Project phase II sworn in
The Upper East Region has sworn in a 10-member Regional Project Steering Committee (RPSC) under the Land Administration Project (LAP) II charged with the oversight responsibilities for smooth implementation of the LAP II in the Region.
In a speech read for him, the Regional Lands Officer, Mr James EK Dandson said the first phase of the LAP which was implemented from 2003 to 2010 laid a strong foundation for the LAP II.
He said it reviewed the status on lands and carried out institutional reforms which gave birth to the new land Commission.
Mr Dandson said that the second LAP was aimed at consolidating the first phase by deepening the reforms, empowering the lands sector agencies to be more responsive to clients, cutting down cost and time of doing business and providing enabling environment to reflect the objectives of an efficient and transparent service delivery.
“It will focus on removing business process bottlenecks through re-engineering and automation of processes and support the judiciary to improve upon adjudication of land cases”, the Regional Lands Officer stressed.
