Tenure Rights to Land For Collective Purposes (Lao version)

Tenure Rights to Land For Collective Purposes (Lao version)
Through a collaborative process with the Land Law Advisory Group in Laos, this series of briefing notes addresses some of the most pressing issues in the country in relation to the recently passed Land Law (2019) and Forest Law (2019). The five briefs in the series address: tenure rights in state forestlands; customary tenure rights; tenure rights to land for collective purposes; awareness-raising for gender and social inclusive and safeguards in cases of land loss or expropriation. The Land and Forest Laws provide unprecedented opportunities to increase tenure security for local communities in Lao PDR, these briefs highlight existing questions or issues, provide brief backgrounds on the issues and importantly, give key recommendations for moving forward.
