    Sri Lanka

    The state owns over 80% of the land in Sri Lanka. The remainder is owned by private parties. Under the State Lands Encroachments Ordinance, all waste lands, forest lands, unoccupied and uncultivated lands are presumed to belong to the state until the contrary is proved (section 7) and all cinnamon land which have been uninterruptedly possessed by the state for over 30 years are held and deemed to belong to the state (section 6).

    Cambodia

    In Cambodia, land and natural resources occupy a central place in the production systems of peasants who represent about 80 percent of the country’s population. The development and governance of socio-ecological systems trigger considerable economic, social and environmental issues that need to be addressed urgently given the profound nature of the transformations at play in these systems across Cambodia.

    Myanmar

    ABSTRACTED FROM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: In October 2014 the Myanmar government unveiled a draft National Land Use Policy (NLUP) and announced it would take public comments for a limited time before finalizing the document. Once it is finalized, the new policy will determine the distribution, use and management of the country’s land and related natural resources like forests and rivers, for years to come.

    Irrational water use and mismanagement are at the root of several environmental problems in the Aral Sea Basin, including secondary salinization. Pre-season leaching (February-March) is a common practice of farmers to manage soil salinity challenges. For example, farmers in the Khorezm region tend applying up to 600 mm of leaching volume to prevent accumulation of salts in the root-zone. However, excessive leaching volume causes the water tables to rise at 1-1.5 m depth which are dangerous depths.

    Agro-ecosystems in dry areas are sensitive to changes in climate
    and land use. The productivities of these agro-ecosystems are
    highly variable in both spatial and temporal scales. Accurate and
    up-to-date information on these production systems at farmscape to
    landscape scales are important for understanding the food security
    and sustainability of socio-ecological systems. Due to lack of such
    information, satellite remote sensing has been used to quantify the
    land productivity and degradation dynamics of agro-ecosystems

    Uzbekistan, Central Asia

    An attempt was made to assess the land condition while taking into consideration environmental and socio-economical parameters that could be drivers of ongoing land degradation processes. Many of these variables have spatial and temporal characteristics and can therefore be monitored through GIS-based tools thus contributing valuable information for assessing land degradation risk.

    Uzbekistan, Central Asia

    In recent decades, multi-spectral and hyper-spectral remotely sensed imageries with high and modern spatial resolutions at sufficient time-series interval have been developed. This allows for detecting crop types and its distribution over large areas and at short time intervals. Among the advantages of remote sensing technologies are its cost effective evaluation over extensive areas and the ability to provide reliable information on land surface conditions. This is useful also for areas with sporadic information on the spatial extent of croplands effected by for instance water scarcity.
