    The forest landscapes of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) are changing dramatically, with a multitude of impacts from local to global levels. These changes invariably have their foundations in forest governance. The aim of this paper is to assess perceptions of key stakeholders regarding the state of forest governance in the countries of the GMS. The work is based on a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the perceptions of forest governance in the five GMS countries, involving 762 representatives from government, civil society, news media, and rural communities.

    ...the customary rights of communities and
    Indigenous Peoples to forests, rangelands, and wetlands are often not
    written down or shown on government maps, but they are a fundamental
    reality. They cover more than 50 percent of the world’s land surface, yet
    new research by RRI in 2015 showed that just 10 percent of the world’s
    land is legally recognized as community-owned.2
    This means that governments formally recognize communities’
    ownership rights to less than 20 percent of the land they have
    historically owned.

    Executive summary: "The high incidence of forest conflict in Southeast Asia underscores the need for conflict-transformation tools to maximize
    the positive impacts and reduce potential damage. Mediation is considered one of the most effective approaches in
    transforming conflict over natural resources. Mediation is often chosen when negotiation between conflict parties fails due
    to the complexity and intensity of the conflict and because of unequal negotiating power. It is also chosen when the judicial

    Cyclone Komen made landfall in Myanmar at the end of July 2015
    causing extensive flooding to
    agricultural land, which remained
    in some areas until September. This caused severe
    localized losses to the 2015 monsoon season crops, especially p
    addy, in Chin, Rakhine,
    Ayeyarwaddy, Yangon, Sagaing
    and parts of Bago. However, once the water receded, a large portion
    of the flooded areas with paddy was replanted. Overall, the amount of irreversible damage was
