Update: 12:22PM LEADERS from a community in the Solomon Islands have used traditional knowledge to support the creation of official Government records to resolve this uncertainty and disagreements on a land ownership.

According to statement by the South Pacific Community said meetings with leaders held in Kia this week confirm strong interest in proceeding with customary land recording of Barora Fa'a land in Isabel Province.

This will ensure that the community has ownership over the process.

The leaders have offered to undertake a formal customary land recording exercise under the guidance of the National Recorder and the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Survey to resolve this uncertainty and disagreements on a land ownership.

The landowners were informed that SPC, with Australian Government financial assistance, is willing to provide a recording officer to officially record the genealogies, representatives and boundaries of the Barora Fa'a land if the landowners wish to take this step.
