International Knowledge Sharing and Learning Workshop on Land and Forest Tenure Reform
Land management remains a priority area in Lao PDR, given that access to land for rural households is fundamental to sustained poverty alleviation. Responsibility for land matters was recently transferred to the new Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE). The National Assembly plays a key role in balancing accelerated economic development and growth with ensuring that benefits from this process are distributed equitably across Lao PDR.
It is in this context the Government of Lao PDR is reviewing and revising various policies and legislation pertaining to land and natural resources. This proposed workshop is designed to provide the knowledge and understanding on land and forest tenure through sharing of international experiences, to a wider set of decision-makers at this very crucial time of review and revision of land policies in Lao PDR.
