(EUA): 1986Description: 253 p.Summary: This document is a synthesis of the studies carried out in Saint Lucia as part of the Natural Resources and Agricultural Development Project. The Project was the result of a technical cooperation agreement between the Government of Saint Lucia and the Secretariat for Economic and Social Affairs of the General Secretariat of the Organization of American States. Project activities were jointly executed by the Department of Regional Development of the OAS and the Ministry of Agriculture of the Government of Saint Lucia. The studies were undertaken between February 1981 and February 1982 by a team of technicians based in Castries and consisting of personnel of the Ministry of Agriculture and staff and consultants of the OAS. The Project was designed to assist the Government in the implementation of the Land Registration Programme and to find solutions to land tenure problems adversely affecting agricultural development. Furthermore, the Government was provided with information and advice regarding policy options for the transformation of the inherited and concentrated land ownership pattern. Finally, the Project included the design of a Pilot Project on Land Registration in a selected rural settlement to help initiate the Land Registration Programme and to facilitate field research on land shortages currently being faced by small farmers in Saint Lucia. To supply the Government of Saint Lucia with the studies requested, Project activities were concentrated on (1) evaluation of natural resources and recommendations on environmental management; (2) analysis of land-related constraints affecting agricultural development in the rural settlements of Saint Lucia; (3) identification of alternative land transformation policies; and (4) design of a pilot project on land registration. Twenty-one technical reports were prepared by OAS experts and consultants and national specialists as a result of these efforts. The information gathered during the Project provided the basis for the preparation of a Development Atlas of Saint LuciaSubject(s): DESARROLLO AGRICOLA | PROYECTOS DE DESARROLLO | ASENTAMIENTOS HUMANOS | REFORMA DE LA TENENCIA DE LA TIERRA | CONSERVACION DE LOS RECURSOS | SANTA LUCIA
