-Symposium In Full Swing

A three-day technical and educational information generation exercise on the security of tenure of the country`s land tenure system is in full swing in Monrovia. The land tenure system symposium is being organized by the leadership of the Association of Professional Land Surveyors of Liberia (APLSUL), brings together approximately 125 participants and stakeholders, disclosed the president of the association, Jonathan Josephus Burgess, Sr.

In a chat with the APLSUL’s president, Mr. Burgess, on the significance of the land tenure system symposium, explained that same is to let the public know the inner workings of land surveyors and disabuse the minds of critics that land surveyors are trouble-makers to land conflict in the country.

According to him, the symposium is intended to have a new forward match and secure the land tenure system that gives rights to people to own land in Liberia for their own use in the sector.
He said a cross section of stakeholders in the land industry are expected to brainstorm at the symposium which runs from November 21 – 23, 2017, while a communiqué would be drafted by the participants at the climax of the event.
“When we ascended to the APLSUL leadership, there had not been a specific detailed information or documentary as it relates to the history of land survey in Liberia,” Mr. Burgess said.
He, however, pointed out that the hosting of the symposium would serve as the beginning to cut off that unwritten history; henceforth, allow for the crafting of a policy on land policy to be adopted and adhered to by generation(s) to come as well as stakeholders of the sector.
Burgess is calling on the Liberian government through the Ministry of Lands, Mines and Energy to provide land surveyors with modern equipment or set up a GIS, GPS laboratory to get on par with surveyors in foreign parts.
The APLSUL boss named the LLA Chairman, Dr. Cecil T.O. Brandy, as the keynote speaker for the event.
He revealed that the executive director of the Liberia Land Authority (LLA), Mr. Stanley Toe, is due to present a paper on the topic “Land Reform and Work of Land Authority as it relates to the Security of Tenure,” while the Publisher of the Inquirer Newspaper, Attorney Philip Wesseh, will speak on the topic “Role of the Press when it comes to Security of Tenure on the Land Tenure System.”
Other discussants are expected to speak on cardinal issues relative to Land Tenure System in Liberia, the APLSUL president added.
