Liberia's land rights and land tenure status is under revision and in 2014, a revised and updated Land Rights Act (LRA) was developed and submitted by the former Land Commission of Liberia (at present the Liberia Land Authority).

The project focuses on advocacy efforts to encourage the passing of the Land Rights Act, through awareness raising at national, county and community level and by improving the advocacy and organisational capacities of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) at different levels, with a special focus on the CSO Working Group on Land Rights. Once the law passes, the project, in collaboration with the Liberian Land Authority will support communities to self-identify and manage their land and provide legal assistance where needed. Stakeholders at different levels shall be linked to ensure the documentation of challenges and lessons learnt in the execution of the Land Rights Act in Liberia.
