Summary

This report analyses and documents the background conditions and impacts of Papua New Guinea’s so-called ‘land grab’, which has seen 72 Special Agricultural and Business Leases (SABLs) totalling 5.1 million hectares of customary-owned land - over 11 per cent of the country and over 16 per cent of accessible commercial forests – granted to unrepresentative landowner companies and foreign-owned corporations for up to 99 years.
