Customary Tenure in Myanmar

Customary Tenure in Myanmar
This video is based on the combined efforts of 5 civil society organizations and ethnic youth organizations (88 Generation, Point, FLU, KYO&TSYU) to document local Customary Tenure practices in different villages throughout the country, in the states of Shan North, Shan South, Magwe and Kayah, with the support of MRLG. It’s explains how they implemented the documentation of Customary Tenure practices. The video also explains what customary tenure is, based on the local communities point of view and practices, and why CT recognition is important to them. This pilot effort is quite important and timely in Myanmar context, as recognition of customary tenure is one of the key principles supported by the National Land Use Policy adopted in 2016.
