Framework for assessing compensation for the wrongful loss of customary land in Papua New Guinea
This is an economic evaluation of the compensation to which Papua New Guinea’s customary landholders -
wrongly dispossessed through Special Agricultural Business Leases (SABL) - might be entitled if they successfully
sued the government. The evaluation involves the calculation of commercial loss but also, and probably more importantly, economic equivalent value loss. The framework identifies the relevant heads of value (not just priced
transactions) and demonstrates appropriate methods for valuation. It does not pretend to be a price calculator
but rather a tool for advocacy.
