FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations), Germany, IFAD (International Fund for Agricultural Development), Finland, GTZ (Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit), UN-Habitat, World Bank and UNDP, and IPC (International NGO/CSO Planning Committee for Food Sovereignty), Food First International Action Network (FIAN), ILC (International Land Coalition), FIG (International Federation of Surveyors) and other development partners are working together with countries to prepare Voluntary Guidelines that will provide practical guidance to states, civil society, the private sector, investors, donors and development specialists on the responsible governance of tenure. By setting out principles and internationally accepted standards for responsible practices and with associated technical guidance, the Voluntary Guidelines will provide a framework and point of reference that stakeholders can use when developing their own policies and actions. The Asia regional consultation meeting on FAO Voluntary Guidelines on Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land and other Natural Resources was held in Hanoi in conjunction with the 7th FIG Regional Conference “Spatial Data Serving People: Land Governance and the Environment – Building the Capacity”. The meeting was co-sponsored by UN-Habitat and FIG, with local organizational support provided by the Vietnam Association of Geodesy, Cartography and Remote Sensing. It was attended by 50 people from 15 countries of the region (Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Maldives, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Viet Nam) and some 20 academics, experts and others from outside the region. All brought a rich and extensive range of expertise derived from their experiences in the public sector, private sector, civil society and academia.
