2:16 pm on 27 June 2012

The Solomon Islands government is today launching a national research programme into the country's customary land tenure laws.

The pilot research project, which will take six months, is being carried out in six regions in Western, Guadalcanal and Malaita provinces.

Local newspapers are publishing the questionnaires which will guide researchers during the survey.

The Government Communication Unit says the research is the biggest such legal and anthropological investigation into the Solomons' customary land laws.
