PESHAWAR: More than 200 students, researchers, and academicians from various universities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa attended the Land Registration in Merged Areas (LRMA) Activity, which concluded on Wednesday.
The activity was part of the awareness drive on “Land Settlement and Registration in the Merged Areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.”
The four-year LRMA activity is supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and is working with the provincial government to establish a land record system across the merged districts.
Muhammad Shoaib, Chief of Party USAID’s LRMA Activity, said, “By investing in students, we are nurturing the future agents of change who can lead the way in advocating for important causes such as land registration and record system.”
The establishment of a proper digital land registration and records system will improve land governance, strengthen property rights, boost economic growth, and promote peace and stability in the region, he added.
