LAP-2 is current and second phase of the Project intended to implement the key Policy actions recommended in the Ghana Land Policy of 1999 to address critical issues militating against effective and efficient Land Administration in the country
Ghana as a developing country relies primarily on Agriculture, Forestry and Mining for its economic sustenance. Heavily dependent on land, these three key sources form about 70% of the country's GDP.
The first phase of the reforms under LAP-1 implemented from 2003 to 2010, laid the foundation by reviewing the statutes on Land carrying out institutional reforms and undertaking pilots on a number of initiatives such as Customary Boundary Demarcation, establishment of Customary Lands Secretariats, Digitizing Land Records Establishment of Land Courts, Systematic Title Registration, among others.
This Second Phase (LAP-2), aims consolidate the gains made under Phase 1 by deepening the reforms, enabling the land Sector Agencies to be more responsive clients, cutting down the cost and time of doing business and providing an enabling environment to reflect the objective of an efficient and transparent service delivery.
