State of Land Rights and Land Governance in Eight Asian Countries

Land governance helps in determining how women, men, families and communities are able to access, use and control land, forests, pastures and water resources in a sustainable manner.

Taking off from previous initiatives of the Land Watch Asia Campaign, this report discusses the key issues in access to land and tenurial security for small farmers, rural women, indigenous peoples and other rural sectors in eight Asian countries. It also analyses the mechanisms needed for responsible land governance and the resolution of growing land conflicts.
