Guinea to establish a multi-player platform to improve land governance
(Ecofin Agency) - United in the Acord Guinée organization, various Guinean civil society groups plan to create a platform to popularize land texts and monitor land policy within the country. Guinée Matin reports.
The organization, which is backed by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), “has several missions, which include the contribution of land policies’ design and development. It will also help raise awareness on land issues, popularize voluntary guidelines and legal texts as well as link national and local dimension in the implementation of land policies and laws in Guinea”.
According to Guinée Matin, this organization “will bring together all players involved in land management. These include the departments of agriculture, urban planning and environment, but also institutions such as the National Assembly, the Economic and Social Council, the private sector, civil society and the media”.
