Impact of The Land Administration Project on Land Titling in Ghana. A Case Study of the Greater Accra Lands Commission.

ABSTRACT
 Land titling is undoubtedly a crucial step in securing investments, sanitizing and providing some assurance for ownership in the land sector of the Ghanaian economy. However, the institution of formalized systems through registration and titling of lands which is considered a means to solve land conflicting issues has rather proven to be creating more uncertainties. The question remains as to why the nation is still yet to reap the full benefits of the Land reforms we are implemented over the years. This highlights the main objectives of the study which was to examine likely benefits of one such frameworks, the LAP bears on Land titling at the Lands Commission. In this
regard, primary data was collected from 100 staff members of the Greater Accra Lands Commission. Findings of the study revealed that, Land reforms like the LAP often results in a number of benefits, some of which includes, more valuable lands, greater land security, investment, lower land conflicts, efficient land markets and economic development. However, it was found that, manual processes, unreliable land records, bureaucratic process and fraud are among key impediments that hinder the successful implementation of the LAP. Based on the findings of the study, the researcher suggested that, the policies concerning land titling and registrations that specifically deal with land rights such as land reforms, resettlement and state leasehold should be diligently reviewed with respect to their regulations, guidelines, training, and procedure. Also, enforcing the right land policies plays a pertinent role in eliminating all forms of uncertainties pertaining to owning lands. Thus the laid down rules must therefore be followed by the land users accordingly in order to obtain legal rights to their lands.
