    Peer-reviewed publication

    Land acquisitions are transforming land-use systems globally, and their characteristics and impacts on human well-being have been extensively analysed through local case studies and regional or global inventories. However, national-level analysis that is crucial for national policy on sustainable agricultural investments and land use is still lacking. This paper conducts an archetype analysis of a unique dataset on land concessions in Lao PDR to provide a national-scale assessment of the impacts of land acquisitions on human well-being in 294 affected villages.

    Philippines

    Land-based sectors in the Philippines are affected by institutional
    weaknesses in various ways, including overlapping and conflicting
    policies, laws and programmes, a lack of reform in public land
    management and inadequate funding for urban development, disaster
    mitigation and climate change. Land governance has thus been given
    paramount importance in recent years. However, security of tenure
    for all remains a challenge as the existing institutional set-up fails

    Philippines

    The Philippines is basically an agricultural country with about 30 per cent of the total land area of the country cultivated by almost 5 million farmers. However farm area devoted to agriculture has been decreasing due to land conversion. The basic problem is that Filipino farmers do not have the ability to buy their own lands. The Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program was implemented to address this problem of landlessness thru redistribution of land.
