This document is intended to provide policy guidance for the use and management of Saint Lucia’s limited, and priceless, land resource, well into the future. It is grounded in the belief that land should be managed in such a manner as to allow Saint Lucians to have access to land, and the services that it provides, on an equitable basis. It also recognizes the need to strengthen and consolidate the institutional and legal framework necessary to ensure that, especially given the wide range of competing demands, land is managed in a fashion that will maximize the economic and environmental benefits to society, on a sustainable basis.
