Our Vision

The Ministry’s Vision is to ensure that Vanuatu’s Land and its Natural Resources are used and managed in a sustainable manner.


Our Mission

The Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources oversees the functions of the Department of Lands, the Department of Geology, Mines and Water, the Department of Environment and Conservation and the Energy Unit.

It also works in collaboration with other Ministries, such as the Ministry of Internal Affairs through the Port Vila Municipal Council, to deal with land issues.

The main areas we will focus on, are on:

1. Growing Private Enterprises.

2. Reducing the cost of Utilities.

3. Addressing Population and Employment Issues.

4. Addressing Environmental Issues.

5. Ensuring there are fair dealing in lands.

6. Ensuring that the rights of Custom Owners to their lands, and its developments, are fully recognized and protected.
