    The Eastern Caribbean is faced by crucial issues related to its food and nutrition security, including lands left idle or underutilized, high food import bills, a lack of land use planning to protect agricultural land and high levels of rural youth unemployment The governance of land tenure in the region is impeded by a lack of comprehensive and current databases This delays the process of selecting available land, surveying and allocating subdivided holdings to available farmers The absence of data and the lenience of the state towards informal and illegal occupants of land may also cause reluctance on the part of private landowners to submit their land to such a process In order to promote sustainable agriculture production at national level, enhance food and nutrition security, and support the sustainable management of rural lands, in particular idle and underutilized lands, the project aimed to develop National Land Banks in Grenada, Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines The establishment of land banks would help to ensure that lands are leased to landless persons who are genuinely interested in agriculture In particular, they have the potential to be a driving force for the involvement of youth in agriculture and rural development, as well as contributing to sustainable land management ( and good governance of land tenure through improved land administration To this end, the project would also build the capacity of staff of the land administration divisions in each country to manage and operate the land banks Overall, the project was expected to contribute significantly to increasing food production, SLM and rural development in the three countries.
