MRLG Representatives Shared Experiences at a Workshop on Land Governance and Research-Policy Interface in the Asia-Pacific

On the 3rd September 2019, the Australian National University hosted a workshop to discuss how researchers and practitioners attempt to influence land governance policies in the Mekong and the Pacific regions.

Two representatives from MRLG – Jean-Christophe Diepart, and Bawi Tha Thawng – shared experiences of the project in engaging with policymaking processes in the Mekong. Jean-Christophe presented a framework as to how the project envisages this complex interface and Bawi Tha’s input was on the role played by research in the Vacant, Fallow and Virgin (VFV) land reform in Myanmar.

Participants included academics, representatives of Australian public institutions, researchers, Ph.D and Master students, and experts working on land issues in Southeast Asia and Asia Pacific regions.
