Summary

Volume one, Reconciling customary land and development in the Pacific, is an overview of the main issues that Pacific island countries, Papua New Guinea and East Timor - referred to broadly as the Pacific region - are likely to face if they choose to reform their land policies and institutions to promote social and economic development. Volume two, Case studies on customary land and development in the Pacific, is a collection of 16 studies that look at problems and innovative practices in land tenure and administration across the Pacific region. These two volumes have been published as an information resource for countries undertaking land policy reform. The books draw lessons from international experience, canvass broad principles and approaches, and seek to stimulate ideas on policy options. Both volumes seek to provide ideas and inspiration for Pacific governments, officials, landholders and the private sector on how to increase the contribution of land to communities and economies while protecting traditional tenure systems.
