LEMCO is presented with expansive sustainable development opportunities in the South Pacific. The Pacific Islands are as their name indicates, located in the Pacific Ocean region of Oceania. Projects in the Melanesian region of the Pacific, have extensive development opportunities in the form of agriculture, tourism and livelihood.
With regard to agriculture, LEMCO is poised to take advantage of the tropical climate of the South Pacific Islands when developing coconut plantations. To sustainably develop these plantations, intercropping is utilised, hence cocoa can also be successfully grown. A number of other commodities such as bamboo, seaweed, rubber, forestry products and livestock can also be cultivated in the region as part of the implementation of sustainable development and harvest processes.
In terms of tourism, LEMCO is able to develop the facilities of the region which will in turn encourage a boost in tourism. By improving the access to and from the islands, for example, through development of a port which can service both development needs and cruise ships, a greater number of tourists will be able to visit the tropical destinations. Additionally, through the internal boost to the economy, from agricultural practices, money can be circulated to build and upgrade tourist accommodation.
LEMCO is uniquely positioned to be able to better the livelihood of Pacific Islands Indigenous communities. Through our projects, Indigenous peoples are able to benefit from being landowners and also part business owners, receiving the profit from the work they are putting in. This can improve the family culture in the region, as well as providing education and vocational training opportunities to a vast selection of the population.
