Baku, Fineko/ The Food & Agriculture Organization (UN FAO) has launched a project in Azerbaijan, aimed at assisting in the development of a national strategy for land consolidation.

FAO land tenure officer Morten Hartvigsen has stated that in order to achieve the objectives of this project, the organization gathers a team of professionals from various related industries, such as land management, land law, land registration, rural development and gender.

“Government staff will be involved in training workshops and seminars where the new land consolidation strategy will be developed. Community workshops are also planned, where local residents will help elaborate desired land parcel exchanges and purchases and participate in community development planning,” it was reported.

He said the $362,000-worth FA-funded project is expected to run for two years.
