This was pronounced by H.E. Ada Cheffou, Minister of Environment, Urban Safety, and Sustainable Development of the Republic of Niger, during the launch of the “EU-SDC-FAO-LPI Transversal Support Programme on Land Governance in Africa.” The Minister lauded the joint efforts of the African Union Commission (AUC)-Economic Commission for Africa (ECA)-African Development Bank (AfDB) Land Policy Initiative (LPI), the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), and the development partners in developing this important platform, which will provide an opportunity for Member States and development partners to share experiences and promote synergy, coordination, and harmonization at country level.
