Large-Scale Land Acquisition for Agricultural Development in Myanmar: A Review of Past and Current Processes – Brief (Burmese)

Large-Scale Land Acquisition for Agricultural Development in Myanmar: A Review of Past and Current Processes – Brief (Burmese)
This brief is a summary of the thematic study with the same title highlighting its key findings. The literature on agricultural large-scale land acquisition in Myanmar is rather fragmented and consists mainly of case studies. While these provide key insights into particular stories, they often fail to identify the main patterns and trends at country level. To fill such gaps, this study presents an updated synthesis of the genealogy, institutional complexity and the ins and outs of large-scale land acquisition processes for agricultural development in Myanmar. Specifically, the study examines: i) the historical evolution of large-scale land acquisition in Myanmar; ii) the institutional pluralism that governs agro-industrial land transactions nowadays; iii) the agro-industrial land transactions as of 2017; iv) the extent to which LSLA has ignited land conflicts across the country; and v) presents recommendations for the current and future management of large-scale land acquisition processes in Myanmar.
