"We are feeling safe about our land now" GIZ Land Program Laos: Assessing the contribution to changes in land use, investments in land and perceived tenure security

Published by: GIZ

For the past decade, GIZ has supported participatory land use planning, land registration and land titling as a vehicle for sustainable rural development in Lao PDR. Following a number of predecessor programmes, the current Land Program (including Land Management and Decentralized Planning (LMDP) and Enhanced Land Tenure Security (ELTeS) projects) is active in the provinces of Luang Namtha, Sayabouri, Huaphan and Khammouane. This impact study focussed on some of the intermediary and longer-term changes that GIZ’s work in the land sector has been aiming to bring about in Laos. Its purpose is to lead to a better understanding of trends in land management and perceived tenure security.
