Wheelchair user

The Liberia Land Authority (LLA) and the National Commission on Disability embarked on public information and outreach campaigns on the Land Rights Act focusing more on what it described as ‘forgotten” groups in the Liberian society, such as Persons with Disabilities.

The LLA is mindful of the National Action Plan on persons with disabilities and based on its core values of Transparency, Fairness, Accountability, and Integrity as contained in its five-year Strategic Plan (2018-2023), the regional sensitisation programmes are critical in the use and management of land in the Country.

Funded by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), access to information by vulnerable groups including persons with disabilities, is imperative in fostering respect for their rights and inclusiveness in accessing land without discrimination.

At the Sensitisation programmes held in Tubmanburg, Bomi County and Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, the Acting Chairman of LLA Adams Manobah stressed the need for more opportunities to be given to vulnerable groups across the country.
