Chuo kikuu Ardhi kimetakiwa kutumia wanataaluma wake kuelekeza nguvu kubwa katika kukabiliana na changamoto na kutatua matatizo ya ardhi ambayo yanaathiri kwa kiasi kukubwa jitihada za Serikali ya Awamu ya Tano ya kufufua uchumi kupitia mpango wa “Tanzania ya Viwanda” unaolenga kuipelekea Tanzania kuwa nchi ya kipato cha kati ifikapo 2025.

Akizungumza kuhusu nafasi ya chuo hicho katika kuendeleza sekta ya Ardhi nchini, Lukuvi amesema chuo hicho ndio chuo pekee kinachozalisha wataalam katika sekta ya ardhi ambapo umefika wakati sasa wa kijitathmini ni kwa kiasi gani kimeweza kuchangia katika kukabiliana na changamoto zilizopo katika sekta ya ardhi.

“Sote tunatambua kuwa kuna changamoto nyingi za kiutendaji katika sekta ya ardhi. Ni mategemeo yangu kuwa kupitia mradi huu ambao ninauzindua leo wa kituo cha mtandao wa utawala bora katika sekta ya ardhi ukanda wa nchi za afrika mashariki (NELGA – Eastern Efrica Node), Chuo kama taasisi yenye wataalamu waliobobea kwenye fani za ardhi, kitatoa mchango mkubwa katika kukabiliana na changamoto hizi” alisema Mhe. Lukuvi.

Awali akitoa maelezo kuhusu mradi wa NELGA, Makamu Mkuu wa Chuo Kikuu Ardhi, Prof. Evaristo Liwa alisema upatikanaji wa mradi huu katika Chuo Kikuu Ardhi ni matokeo ya ubobezi na uwezo wa chuo hiki katika masuala mbalimbali yanayoizunguka ardhi ambapo April 2016 kilichaguliwa na Umoja wa nchi za Afrika (AU) kupitia mradi wa “NELGA” (Network of Excellence in Land Governance in Africa, Eastern Africa) ili kuhudumia kama kitovu cha kuboresha mtandao wa elimu na mafunzo katika sekta ya ardhi “NELGA node” ukanda wa nchi Afrika Mashariki.

Fursa ambayo pia ilipelekea Chuo kupata ufadhili wa kuanzisha mradi wa kuboresha usimamizi katika sekta ya Ardhi kutoka Serikali ya Ujerumani. Ufadhili huu ulitokana na tafiti zilizofanywa na Umoja wa Nchi za Africa (African Union) kupitia kituo cha Mpango wa Sera ya Ardhi (The Land Policy Initiative – LPI) na kubainisha taasisi za kitaaluma bobezi katika masuala ya ardhi na mazingira ambapo pia ilibainishwa kuwepo kwa mapungufu katika utendaji kwa wataalamu wa sekta ya Ardhi katika Afrika.

Prof. Liwa alisema ili kufanikisha utekelezaji wa program hii Bara la Afrika limegawanywa katika kanda 5 mojawapo ikiwa ni Kanda ya Mashariki ya Afrika.
