Govn't plans to work closely with Solomon Islands Landowners

The government plans to work closely with landowners to set new sustainable directions to optimise the utilization of land and its resources throughout the country.

This initiative is part of the government’s policy on “Land Use and Ownership” in Solomon Islands.

Under this policy, the government will openly discuss with landowners issues involving the registration of tribally owned customary lands and the opening up of such lands to prospective developers to enhance economic projects.

The Government Communications Unit says that in order to materialize this initiative, the government will take the lead by amending or repealing existing land laws with the intention to make customary land a bankable or transferable commodity.

As part of this plan, the government will carry out land reform to address issues involving the “recognition of indigenous tribes as corporate entities, corporate owners of land as opposed to individual ownership and the protection of land from further alienation.

The Communications Unit says the land policy will also enable the government to consider offering current Temporary Occupational License holders in crown lands the option to convert their licenses into Fixed Term Estates.
