Project Description

The development objective of the Second Phase of Land Administration Project for Ghana is to consolidate and strengthen land administration and management systems for efficient and transparent land services delivery.The proposed Additional Financing (AF) will include an extension of the Project’s closing date to December 31, 2021. The AF was formally requested by the Government of Ghana (GoG) in a letter dated February 13, 2018.The proposed AF would finance additional activities under all four Components. The AF will i) support scaling up of project activities in the customary land sector; and ii) respond to a financing gap to support completion of the activities of the Lands Commission (LC) to achieve the current Project Development Objective (PDO). The proposed investments do not go beyond the original objectives of the Project but would allow more people to benefit from project activities. The proposed AF would also finance a feasibility analysis for potential public-private partnerships (PPP) in land administration thatwould support the Government of Ghana’s interest in more private sector engagement in the land sector.
