SDI Commends Gov’t for Signing Land Rights Bill into Law

first_imgMs. Bowier (middle) addresses yesterday’s press conference.The leadership of Sustainable Development  Institute  (SDI) yesterday, September 26, commended  President George Weah for signing into law the landmark Land Rights Bill known as the “Land  Rights Law of 2018” as well as the historical Local Government  Act.SDI at a press conference in Monrovia, said they strongly believed that these legislations will be on record as two of the most notable trans-formative milestone of the post-conflict era in promoting citizens’ participation in the decision-making process as well as positive development in Liberia’s quest for peace, reconciliation and sustainable development.The group said the passage of the bill into law has made the country to finally confront an anomaly of the past and address one of the most contentious aspects of its conflict’s history, bringing succor to thousands of Liberians, especially those in rural communities.SDI Coordinator Ms. Nora Bowier said the enormity of the potential impact of the Land Rights Law is underscored by the fact that before its passage into law, all lands in the country were either private land  (deeded lands) or public land (land manage by the state).“This means lands communities had lived on for decades would be granted to national or international concessions and private members are directly responsible for the management of their land and natural resources,” Ms. Bowier said.She said the land law provides safeguards for women to participate in decision-making around community collective land, which is particularly significant for women, because they constitute 50 percent of the total population and 70 percent of those engaged in agriculture.“The land law states that membership of the Community Land Development and Management Committee (CLMDC) shall consist of equal representation of the three stakeholders groups; men, women and youth. Except for chiefs of the community, who shall be ex-officio members of the CLMDC, the representative of the groups shall be democratically elected,” Ms. Bowier said.She said with these rights, communities can now collectively protect their lands and forest, build social cohesion, invest in large scale farming, negotiate contracts with external actors and participate in other revenue generating activities using their land.“Given the fact that land is a key resource in an agrarian society as Liberia and the suggestion that if there were ever going to be another conflict on the scale we had in the last three decades it would increase the tension associated with land, we believe the Land Rights Law has provided the prism through which we can reverse the past,” she highlighted.Bowier said the law is part of the long process which is ongoing, indicating that the difficult task ahead is ensuring full and unfettered implementation of the law.She said it is incumbent upon all stakeholders to ensure the successful application of the law.“The government must demonstrate the political will to preserve the sanity and sanctity the law brings to the tenure regime; civil society must play its watchdog role and create awareness and monitoring, international partners must provide the needed support, especially for implementation and communities, and citizens must take advantage of the new opportunity to enhance their livelihood and preserve their land and natural resources,” Bowier said.She said rural dwellers have historically been marginalized as they were largely denied the right to participate in large scale land use transitions or in the negotiation of concession agreements.SDI believes that the granting of customary land rights to communities will introduce a chance from an exclusionary approach that had been used to govern the country’s land by giving power to community dwellers to own and manage their lands.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Newcastle 2-0 Liverpool: Klopp’s Reds stunned by Magpies at St James’ Park

first_imgLiverpool, chasing their fifth consecutive win, were left stunned by Newcastle United after Georginio Wijnaldum scored two goals to seal three crucial points for the Magpies.After thrashing Southampton mid-week in the League Cup, confidence was high on Merseyside as the Reds travelled to St James’ Park hoping to extend their winning run against Steve McClaren’s Premier League strugglers.Jurgen Klopp made six changes to the side that shocked the Saints, with Simon Mignolet, Nathaniel Clyne, James Milner, Jordan Ibe, Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino returning to the starting line-up.The German manager opted for Benteke to lead the line ahead of Daniel Sturridge, who has only recently made his return from injury, and the Belgian should have got his name on the scoresheet mid-way through the first half.Ibe, who has grown in confidence under his new manager, made a bright start to the game and a bursting run on the right wing saw the teenager win Liverpool a corner.The resulting set-piece met Dejan Lovren in the box, who sent the ball towards Benteke, but the former Aston Villa man could only fire his effort high over the bar from close range.The Magpies, however, frustrated the visitors, with the Reds quickly becoming sloppy in possession and failing to threaten goalkeeper Rob Elliot.With Liverpool struggling to create, McClaren’s men grew into the game and Papiss Cisse, enjoying one of his better performances in a Newcastle shirt, was becoming an increasing problem for the Reds defence.And the Senegalese forward had a superb chance to give his side the lead late on in the first half.After dispossessing Liverpool, the hosts quickly burst forward, and following some neat play in the centre of the park, Wijnaldum delivered the ball into the path of the unmarked Cisse. Cisse drove into the box, but was culpable of taking too long, allowing Lovren and Martin Skrtel to clear their lines.The Magpies will no doubt have headed into the dressing room feeling that Liverpool were there for the taking following one of their most impressive halves of the season.And the second half very much continued where it had left off, with Klopp continuing to cut a frustrated figure on the sidelines.In what has been a rarity for Newcastle this term, there was an air of optimism among the crowd, and the spirit was clearly felt by the players, who began to push further up the pitch.As Liverpool’s struggle to threaten continued, Klopp decided enough was enough, and shortly after the hour mark opted to bring on Adam Lallana and Sturridge, replacing Benteke and Firmino, in the hope of reviving what had been a lifeless attack thus far.Having been on the pitch a matter of seconds, Sturridge and Lallana were already causing problems for the Newcastle defence, with both eager to get on the ball.They didn’t, however, make the instant impact that Klopp may have hoped, and shortly after their arrival, the Magpies got their breakthrough.With just over twenty minutes left on the clock, Wijnaldum was awarded too much space in the box and after easing past Lovren saw his strike on goal deflect off the foot of Skrtel and nestle into the back of the net.Sturridge had a sublime chance to equalise after being played in by a perfectly weighted through ball from Lallana, but the England international dragged his effort wide of the far post.Liverpool will have felt hard done by, though, when a long ball forward from Lucas was volleyed home by Alberto Moreno, only for the linesman to incorrectly rule the Spaniard offside.The poor passes and sloppy touches, however, didn’t subside in the final minutes of the clash for the Reds, and Newcastle heaped further misery on the visitors in injury time, making it game over.After stealing the ball off Milner on the right flank, Moussa Sissoko delivered an exquisite pass towards Wijnaldum and, after excellent control, the Dutchman coolly chipped Mignolet to score his second of the game and ease the nerves of the home crowd.This was arguably Newcastle’s best performance of the season, and there’s no better time to put in such a display than before the hectic festive period.For Klopp, meanwhile, it’s back to the drawing board. 1 Newcastle United’s Georginio Wijnaldum last_img read more

 

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: 5 SMALL STEPS TO SUCCESS

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: Last week we touched on how to plan for achieving your goals.This week I am going to give you some simple tips that I have picked up over the years. When added into your daily routine, these 5 tips can be adhered to very easily and can be very effective in helping you achieve your weight loss goals.1. Using a food diary: A simple food diary can prevent you from taking in excess calories from seemingly innocent sources such as sugary drinks and cereal bars.Writing down everything that you eat and drink, means that you are holding yourself accountable for your actions. It can prevent you from making mistakes.If you are training with a friend, swap diaries once a week and hold each other accountable.2. Portion Control: How much do we need to eat at each meal? Hands up if you know?Actually keep them up, because they are a very good tool for portion control.Your hand is your very own customized meal planner. If you are small and have small hands you will eat smaller portions and if you are tall and have large hands you will eat larger portions.At each meal you should be getting in a portion of protein, a portion of carbohydrates and a portion of fibrous vegetables.a) Protein (Chicken, beef, fish) You should use the size of an open palm and should roughly be the thickness of your thumb.b) Carbs. (Potato, sweet potato, rice)You should use the same size as a cupped hand.c) Vegetables (Any vegetables, but green is best) You should use the size of a closed fist.d) For extra fats if needed, such as oils and butter for cooking, or nuts for snacking on, you will use the length and thickness of your thumb, from tip to the large knuckle. (Any nut except peanuts.) 3. Food preparation and planning:Advanced preparation of meals can prevent you from making mistakes due to work or family commitments. You can cook everything you need the night before, or in the morning when you get up. All you have to do is pack it up and bring it with you. If this all seems too much, pick two days throughout the week. (I find Sunday and Wednesday works best for me.) Prepare everything you need for the next few days. Pack it in containers, freeze it and take it out and use it as needed.4. Snack on fruit and nuts:A small snack of fruit and nuts mid-morning and mid-afternoon has been shown to be effective in weight loss and can keep hunger at bay for longer. An apple and a portion of almonds is a perfect snack.This simple yet effective way of snacking, also allows you to always have something at hand that you can have if you are caught out and miss a meal.5. Use the 90% rule:The 90% rule allows you to be consistent with something but to have some leeway throughout the week as well. An example of this is that if you planned to eat 5 meals per day 7 days per week, that is 35 meals, 90% of this would give 32, so that allows 3 free meals throughout the week. Think business lunch, family celebration or wedding etc.These are very simple, but very effective ways to create structure to your weight loss goals.For further information on Personal Training and Nutrition contact me through the link below.
