In his opening address at the FAO/USP/RICS Foundation South Pacific Land Tenure Conflict Symposium held in Fiji in April 2002, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of the South Pacific, Savenaca Siwatibau, said "They say that land, like financial and human capital, is a factor of production, which helps drive economic and social development, generate national income, wealth, jobs and government revenue, combat poverty, improve the standard of living of all and ultimately entrench social and political stability in any country. Land tenure, like culture and tradition, stands to evolve organically over time within a society. As in all things, changes and solutions have to be made and formulated. Solutions must beformulated from within and must reflect national, family and individual needs and aspirations and the changing global, regional, national economic, social and political dynamics that determine our destiny.
