Keren, 17 April 2024 – The Ministry of Land, Water, and Environment convened a workshop in Keren on 15 and 16 April, focusing on the guidelines, importance, and challenges of cadastral registration, as well as its advantages. In his keynote address, Mr. Tesfai Gebreselasie, Minister of Land, Water, and Environment, emphasized that the workshop aimed to enhance public understanding of land, water, and environmental issues. He noted that effective management is crucial for all activities, and the primary goal was to clarify and implement government guidelines in a beneficial manner.

A report was presented at the workshop, detailing the government’s efforts in accordance with the Macro Policy of 1994, aimed at ensuring equal opportunity and proper land use, preventing practices that negatively impact the land, and issuing guidelines to promote land development and resolve related conflicts. It was also reported that managing water resources for household use, irrigation, and development initiatives remains a significant challenge, with the optimal solution being the efficient use and enrichment of underground water resources.

The report further highlighted the significance of cadastral registration, established through Proclamation No. 95/1997.

Participants engaged in extensive discussions on the report and adopted various recommendations, including sustainable awareness-raising activities, conservation of indigenous crops, due attention on chemicals being used at illegal mining activities as well as the sustainability of the workshop.
