Promoting Economic Use of Customary Land, Phase II: Technical Assistance Completion Report
sector: Public Sector Management | country: Samoa
While the use of customary land is of economic importance for the people of Samoa, it is culturally sensitive, and this requires community consultations. As government continues in its reform plans, the public will need to be continuously consulted, and investors and landholders made aware of the opportunities as they become available. The use of Samoan national consultants on the TA (technical assistance) has helped with the community consultations and given stakeholders assurance and confidence about the objectives of the TA. Political will to push on with the reforms is of great importance.
