Securing land rights of women in ethnic communities through legal support

Securing land rights of women in ethnic communities through legal support
Women in ethnic minority communities are often disadvantaged when in comes to securing their land rights. In the mountainous provinces of Northwest Vietnam, Land Use Rights Certificates (LURC) are often registered in the name of the husband, despite changes in the Land Law stipulating LURCs be registered in the name of both husband and wife. This reportage by Vietnamese television (TVT) examines why land rights awareness is critically important for women, and highlights the positive impacts of a project to secure women’s land rights through the provision of legal support, implemented by the Consultative Institute for Socio-Economic Development of Rural and Mountainous Areas (CISDOMA) with the support of MRLG. The report aired on Vietnamese national television (TVT) on 9 January 2018. It is in Vietnamese language with English subtitles.
