Strengthening Land Governance


10/14 - 05/17


This project is part of

The recent transition to market economy and
creation of land market has led to increased land
speculation. In the face of weak legal frameworks
and institutions for their protection, the land access
of women and men farmers, especially those
(mostly ethnic minorities) living in upland shifting
cultivation areas, is at risk. Land governance will
be a central issue in any political dialogue with
ethnic leaders. The rapidly evolving political
environment presents both opportunities and risks
for equitable land governance.
