A day's workshop to sensitize stakeholders on effective land use and administration in the Awutu Senya District
has been held at Kasoa.
Participants were also educated on how to benefit from the Customary Land Secretariat (CLS) that has been established in Kasoa.
The stakeholders comprised assembly members, traditional rulers, heads of departments and institutions, market women, hairdressers, tailors, land lords, urban council members and civil society representatives.
The Centre for Development of People (CEDEP), a Non-Governmental Organisation, under the auspices of the Land Administration Project, organised the workshop.
Mr Charles Sakyi, Deputy Executive Director of the NGO, said the workshop was to equip participants with knowledge about the project and to educate them about the Customary Land Secretariat.
Mr. Benedict Fosu Adjei, Assistant Programme Manager of CEDEP, said the customary land secretariat would help to develop a sustainable and well functioning land administration system in the area.
He said LAP had over the past years paid particular attention to traditional areas, where customary land secretariats subsequently had been established.
Mr Jonathan Ayiettey, lecturer at the Institute of land Management and Administration, appealed to participants to impart the knowledge they had acquired at the workshop to their people to ensure the success of the secretariat.
