    Timor-Leste, Eastern Asia, Oceania

    The Country Environmental Analysis (CEA) for Timor-Leste identifies environmental priorities through a systematic review of environmental issues in natural resources management and environmental health in the context of the country's economic development and environmental institutions. Lack of data has been the main limitation in presenting a more rigorous analysis. Nevertheless, the report builds on the best available secondary data, presents new data on the country's wealth composition, and derives new results on the costs of water and air pollution.

    Vietnam, Eastern Asia, Oceania

    Vietnam's rapid and sustained economic growth and poverty reduction in the last two decades benefitted from the policy and legal reforms embodied in the Land Laws of 1987, 1993 and 2003 and subsequent related legal acts. This note outlines reforms related to four main themes. The first relates to the needed reform for agriculture land use to create opportunity to enhance effectiveness of land use as well as to secure farmers' rights in land use. Prolonging the duration of agricultural land tenure would give land users greater incentives to invest and care for the land.

It provides both qualitative and quantiative information on the effects of ownership security. The study presents a conceptual model and literature review and is followed by separate discussions on the evolution of land rights in Thailand; the study methodology and the nature of the data; and the credit market.

    Urbanization, which is almost completed
    now in developed countries and even in Latin America, is now
    proceeding in much of Asia at an unprecedented rate. Many of
    the countries in the region have up to half their population
    now living urban lifestyles and increasingly also living in
    urban regions. The forms that urbanization is taking in the
    developing countries, however, are problematic. Towns and
    cities that were never planned to have large populations are

    The Forest Concession Management and Control Pilot Project (FCMCPP) overall objective was developed in the early 2000s and aims at 'testing and demonstrating, through implementation, a comprehensive set of forest planning and management guidelines and control procedures and establishing an effective forest management compliance monitoring and enforcement capability'. According to the planning handbook a separate and specific document was supposed to be prepared with regard to the social issues of the forest concession planning process in order to complete the planning process.

    Vietnam

    In the wake of reforms to establish a free market in land-use rights, Vietnam is experiencing a pronounced rise in rural landlessness. To some observers this is a harmless by-product of a more efficient economy, while to others it signals the return of the pre-socialist class-structure, with the rural landless at the bottom of the economic ladder. The authors' theoretical model suggests that removing restrictions on land markets will increase landlessness among the poor, but that there will be both gainers and losers, with uncertain impacts on aggregate poverty.

    Philippines

    The economy of the Philippines is open
    to trade and capital inflows, and has grown rapidly since
    2002. Over the last 10 years, however, domestic investment,
    while stagnant in real terms, has shrunk as a share of GDP.
    In an open and growing economy, why the decline? Three
    reasons explain the puzzle. First, the public sector cannot
    afford expanding its investment at GDP growth rates.
    Second, the capital-intensive private sector does not find

    Vietnam

    Vietnam's forests remain dependent
    on public resources, including international development
    assistance, for the delivery of public and private services
    that include timber production, state forest management,
    forest protection and biodiversity conservation, and
    extension and research. Public subsidies are also provided
    to smallholder forest owners to stimulate investments into
    the sector. For the Government it is important to
