Established in 2016, and following from the interim Land Commission (established in 2009), the Liberian Land Authority is a one-stop, independent body of the Government, mandated to formulate and implement laws, policies, regulations and programs in support of land governance, including land administration and management. Section 8 establishes the functions of the Land Commission that include, among others, to promote and support the development of land use plans, to support implementation of property rights including security of tenure of those holding land under customary rights, and to create a complete database of all landholding and rights in land in Liberia. The Act also establishes a National Consultative Forum (Part III), a County Land Board for each county (Part VI) and Community Land Management and Development Associations (Part VII).
