Improving land tenure. A survey of the problems of adapting customary land tenure systems to modern economic conditions in the region served by the South Pacific Commission



Improving land tenure. A survey of the problems of adapting customary land tenure systems to modern economic conditions in the region served by the South Pacific Commission



Technical Paper, South Pacific Commission (159, Revised): xi+70



The report concludes that the present system of land tenure in the Pacific Islands is an obstacle to achieving higher living standards. Detailed recommendations include: (1) Registration of all land used (or about to be used) for permanent crops. Piecemeal registration is costly and inefficient and most registries in the Pacific could be considerably improved.
