Gov’t should comprehensively address matters of land ownership, titling, transfer and management, acquisition and productivity.

Government should revoke absentee landlords. The historical land injustices should be dealt with. All land matters

Government subsidies should be implemented for products on the Coast. 

Government to revive the dead companies. These companies include; Biktsa, Cashewnut, Rice, Sugar among others. Crops grown at the coast should be recognized as among the cash crops.

Creation of social and impact association. This will harness friendship among the coastal communities.

The people also resolved to have 
Equal and inclusion of coastal in the public service.

Coast regional policy authority to be created. This regional government will create inclusivity.

The tourism board and product board should be created and implemented.
