Linkage of FBB output 3 to Land Tenure Issues • Increasing rate of ‘land grabs’ • constructions of hotels and resorts • other industrial and residential facilities. • Large areas earmarked for Major Oil/Gas works • A number of factors affecting availability, access and Security of land tenure for fishing landing, processing and marketing. • One major factor is the lack of boundary demarcation and secure documentation of communal lands dedicated for fishing land sites in coastal communities
Major Anticipated Challenges • The Security of the usage right of the marginalized group. • Lack of Spatial Development plan
Major Anticipated Challenges • The Security of the usage right of the marginalized group • Fishermen collectively acquires the land • Local Authority acquires the land for the fisher folks • Government uses compulsory acquisition • Private Public Partnership (Owner and Fisher folks enter into Agreement). • Lack of Spatial Development plan • No spatial development plan for Central Regional and Volta Regions.
