Lots of food for thought - everyone should read the literature on offer.

I was an enthusiast of land registration when it was first legislated but then got involved in a couple of attempts to do that to facilitate landowner negotiations with mining exploration companies.

It was then that I realised the complexities of the process and the opportunities to corrupt the process.

I'm now thinking its best to devise systems that don't alter traditional land tenure. Rather, systems should be devised that can incorporate traditional land systems left untouched.

The ILG process is really a fairly arrogant system imposed from outside by people who feel superior and think they know better.

Sadly, this approach seems to be at the root of many of PNG's current problems.
