USAID Launches Land Governance Project

November 16 , 2019

USAID and the Ministry of Urban Development & Construction launched a land governance project to be implemented over the next five years. The project will cost 11 million dollars. The new project will support policy, management and administration to improve land tenure and rights for farmers and pastoralists in Ethiopia. It is aimed at addressing emerging land-related challenges, including rapid urbanisation and degradation of soil and arable land. Sean Jones, USAID mission director, Tazer Gebregziabiher, state minister of Urban Development & Construction, and Tigistu Gebremeskel, director of land administration and use at the Ministry of Agriculture, were present at the launching event of the project. “Improving the planning, policy and land management is critical to helping Ethiopian farmers and families reap the fruits of their labour more fully and have better opportunities for themselves and their children to fulfill the bright future they deserve,” said Sean.
