The thesis examines household food security on two oil palm Land Settlement Schemes (LSSs) in West New Britain Province, Papua New Guinea. Household food security is being undermined because of garden land shortages and pressures on other block resources such as oil palm income. To address these problems, households were accessing gardening land in new locations, intensifying food crop production and participating in non-oil palm income-earning activities to maintain nutritionally adequate diets.
