The proposed restructure of Fiji's sugar industry has the potential to change fundamentally the incentives facing stakeholders and their interaction. How well the stated objective of 'unity in purpose' is achieved will depend on whether the causes of the current land conflict are addressed and whether the established decision-making process can help build trust, transparency and accountability. Ultimately, the success of the proposed industry restructure may depend on the commitment of Fijian landowners and the Fijian administration to review the way returns are shared among stakeholders.
