The implications of land issues for climate resilient informal settlements in Fiji and Papua New Guinea

The implications of land issues for climate resilient informal settlements in Fiji and Papua New Guinea

This research aims to understand the implications of land issues for the climate resilience of informal settlements in Fiji and Papua New Guinea, both of which have more than 80% customary tenure.

Findings from the research are intended to inform people in the land and property sector about existing land issues and the complexity of resettlement in the context of land tenure arrangements, and the issues that need to be addressed in the process of resettlement in order to protect the rights of people in informal settlements, and improve their abilities to adapt to current climate variability and future climate change.
