    Het aantal ouderen neemt toe. Bij veel ouderen groeit de financiële armslag, maar dat gaat gepaard met een kleinere dagelijkse actieradius. Verwacht mag worden dat dit tot meer aandacht zal leiden voor de kwaliteit van de directe woonomgeving. Voor het landschapsbeleid biedt dit uitgelezen mogelijkheden.

    Vietnam

    The transition to a market economy has sparked Vietnam's unprecedented urbanization and industrialization. In order to accommodate the spiraling land demand triggered by urban and economic growth, the Vietnamese government has been using the mechanism of compulsory acquisition at an astounding scale to convert massive amount of agricultural land to urban land for non-agricultural uses. A large number of the country's poorest, most vulnerable citizens have been forced out of their land to make way for development projects, yet, they are also the group that have least benefited from them.

    ABSTRACTED FROM THE CONCLUSION: The absence of secure tenure and resulting forced evictions represent clear violations of Article 11 of the Covenant with respect to the right to adequate housing by the Cambodian Government. The absence of a comprehensive legislative framework and the failure of other mechanisms to guarantee tenure security, including an independent and effective court system, constitute a failure of the Government to fulfil its Covenant obligations.
