A two-day validation workshop on Liberia’s Agriculture Investment Approval Process Review gets underway in Monrovia shortly.

The workshop is organized by the Food and Agriculture of the United Nations (FAO) in collaboration with the Government of Liberia. The two-day session is being held in the framework of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT) program.

The two-day meeting will bring together participants mainly from food security sector including the government line ministries and agencies, civil society organizations, community based organizations, concessionaries, private sector and the media.
The objective is to support the application of the VGGT by providing technical guidance on how to safeguard tenure rights in the context of agricultural land related investment. In 2015, FAO has implemented blended of learning sessions to support the implementation of the VGGT at country levels.
In line with its strategic objectives 2 ‘Make agriculture, forestry and fisheries more productive and sustainable’, FAO embarked on series of capacity development seminars involving key government authorities in charge of agricultural investment promotion, approval, and monitoring activities.
In July 2017, a working group consisting representatives from governments of Liberia and Sierra Leone and FAO met to review and modify the investment approval process currently in use in Liberia and Sierra Leone.
The primary objectives of these exercises were to help these officials to fulfill their role of targeting investments in a way that furthers national development goals that safeguard tenure and contribute to food security and nutrition.
The Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT) was endorsed by the World Food Committee in May 2012. The VGGT has received great attention and support by governments, civil society organizations and other stakeholders.
