PESHAWAR, Pakistan: The US government is partnering with the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government to strengthen transparency and accuracy in the land records and registration system, promoting economic growth and investment in the seven subdivisions of the Newly Merged Districts.

At a ceremony in Peshawar attended by Ambassador Blome on July 13, the US Agency for International Development (USAID) provided US$ 5 million worth of equipment to the KP Board of Revenue, augmenting its capacity for accurate land measurements.

   

The United States also announced a new partnership to empower the Ombudsperson Secretariat by providing training to Ombudsperson staff on women’s rights and land settlement regulations.

This initiative aims to raise awareness about the Ombudsperson’s crucial role in safeguarding women’s rights to property and inheritance.

“With the support of USAID, the Board of Revenue of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is entirely digitizing the land records system in the seven subdivisions of the Newly Merged Districts…Land record management will be revolutionized, benefiting the people of the Merged Areas by significantly increasing efficiency, accuracy, and convenience,” said Ikramullah Khan, Senior Member of the Board of Revenue.US supports KP to strengthen land records system, promote women’s right to inheritance, & improve security

While in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Ambassador Blome also joined Inspector General Akhtar Hayat and KP Police Officers in an inauguration ceremony of the recently completed US$ 17.2 million Joint Police Training Center in Nowshera.

The inauguration marks the end of the 12-year project funded by the US Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL). The center is the largest construction project ever completed by INL in Pakistan.

Implemented by the UN Development Program (UNDP), the completion of this project has enabled the training center to increase its training capacity to 1,700 personnel at one time.

The project constructed 75 buildings including academic buildings, a health unit, men’s and women’s hostels, and a multi-purpose hall.

Ambassador Blome and Inspector General of KP Police Hayat also signed an agreement to deliver US$ 3 million in life-saving armored vehicles, bulletproof vests, and helmets to the KP Police.

At the event, Ambassador Blome stated, “This investment will have a lasting positive impact. The strengthening of law enforcement presence and the writ of government in remote and under-governed areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will lead to increased security and prosperity.”
