The Ninth of March 2021 will go down in history for the residents of Mambasa Territory in Ituri Province as the day the government laid the foundation stone for the Mambasa Land Administration building. This construction project is part of the land reform process in which the government has been engaged in since 2012, which seeks to: develop a national land policy in a participatory manner and revise land laws and regulations; improve security of land tenure in target communities and develop methodological guides in this area; establish the land information system and strengthen land administration in the target provinces. The launch of the construction, estimated to last up to five months, coincided with the official handover of various equipment to the Mambasa Land Administration to strengthen its capacity to respond effectively to the challenges of land information management. The Community Land Service will facilitate the organization of the community land management at the chiefdom level.
